Legendary Coach Malcolm Willstrop Passes Away

Malcolm Willstrop, coach to numerous top-ranked players and legendary figure at the UK's squash mecca of Pontefract, has died of cancer aged 83.
Father and coach of former world No.1 and Commonwealth Games gold medallist James Willstrop, Malcolm was one of squash's most recognisable, forthright and engaging characters.
The Squash Player team's thoughts are with James, his wife Vanessa Atkinson and their two sons, as well as Mick Todd, Pontefract Squash Club owner, who has worked alongside his best friend and confidant for decades
