REPORTS
The final between Willstrop and Selby, was one of the best in the 20 years of the tournament. The first went to Willstrop who after leading all the game was pulled back by Selby to 10-10 and won it on two good winners. The second was a bit quicker 11-5 to Willstrop and it looked like it could be all over. Not to be however, the match got better and better 11-7 Selby then 11-7 again, two all.

The squash was second to none, outstanding rallies and winners from all over the court. What followed in the fifth can be described as a rally that was up there with the best ever, Selby in every corner, amazing retrieving, finishing with having to dive to play a back wall boast getting up and racing to the front to play an impossible straight drive off a Wilstrop drop shot to win the rally, If only we had got it on camera. The packed crowd where on their feet to applaud and the look on referee John Massarellas face said it all. Alas it was runner up again for Selby as Willstrop closed out 11-8, what an amazing match, when will these athletes get the credit they deserve. It was a fitting final to celebrate the 20th year

Preview

We have reached the 20th year of the Cleethorpes Cricket Club Professional Invitation Squash Tournament, who would have believed it. I have had the benefit and support of the team from day one, Rick Havercroft, Brian and Julie Barrett and one of the now world class referees, John Massarella. 

Many thanks to the main sponsors, Oceanblue Logistics, Specsavers, Van Franchise, Rudd Solicitors, XceCo Ltd, Bring Logistics, A.P.Robinson Accountants, MHI Vestas C/O Eon and Cristal Pigments UK for their generous support. Without such support we would never be able to put on such an event, I cannot thank you enough.

The quality of the players is as strong as ever, we are privileged to have them in Cleethorpes. With two world top ten, three world top 30 and the others all world top 90, there is sure to be some quality squash on view.

As always I would like to thank each company that has placed an advert in the program, some who have been with us from day one, yours is a massive contribution to the event.
