IT was runners-up trophies for both the men's and ladies' teams from Ashbourne Squash Club when they travelled to Alfreton for Derbyshire Knockout Cup finals.
Facing King Edward Lichfield, the men fell behind with a defeat for James Archer but a spirited comeback from Andreas Lueer levelled the tie.
Unfortunately, that was as good as it got and Tom Machell, Jeff Davenport and Mike Herridge were all beaten by talented young opponents for a 4-1 defeat and second place in the tournament for a second successive season.
The ladies were on court next, against Duffield, but the score was the same.
Sylvia Lueer pulled off a win but Rebecca Avis, Jane McIntyre, Barbara Bradshaw and Edwina Edwards lost.
