SQUASH players at Barnton Cricket Club have celebrated a perfect winter season that ended with them being promoted as champions.

The men’s first-team occupied top spot in the North West Counties League’s Division Three South after winning 20 successive matches.

Lee Washburn led the way, prevailing in every game that he featured, with support from Ian Cameron, Mike Cross, Jamie Dyson, Eric Southern and Paul Wilkinson.

Their reward is to step up a level next term.

They fell short in a bid to be crowned overall third division champions following a defeat against Northern Crosby in a play-offs semi-final.

Meanwhile the club is recruiting new players.
