New Ladies Champion

In what was the first Ladies Club Championship for a decade, Sandra McCutcheon and Jane Logan played out a thrilling final.  Both ladies played out of their skin as they both wanted to be the first lady for 10 years to get their name on the Club Champion’s Board.  Both players used intelligence and cunning throughout the match to out-fox their opponent.  Sandra took the first game quite convincingly due to some loose shots from Jane.  Jane tightened up her game in the second, with shots tight to the wall, and Jane started killing the ball at key moments making it difficult for Sandra to get into a rhythm. But some excellent movement ensured Sandra took the second game too.  Going into the third game both ladies were focussed and had to think about their shots as some long rallies and quick movement by both players made for a highly entertaining game. Despite Jane’s best efforts Sandra fought for every point and secured the match 3-0, final scores 9-3, 9-4, 9-3.

After the match Jane congratulated Sandra and both players said they were delighted to have had such an entertaining final. Sandra said “It was great to win the first ladies final in the decade and was a fun match, this is exciting times for ladies squash in the Borders.”

The final was umpired by Agnes Burnie and scored by Rachel McAleese.
