ASHBOURNE squash club entered the promotion positions in the Derbyshire Squash League, and stormed through to the next round of the Knockout Cup, with two emphatic 5-0 wins within a week of each other.
A strong team was fielded for the crucial league home tie against high flyers LA Fitness, of Derby, but the opposition were no match and the Ashbourne team of Jeff Davenport, Tom Machell, James Archer, Ewen Tanner and Andreas Lueer all won competitive ties to send the side into the top two in the league.
If the side hold up in the second half of the season this will give them a second consecutive promotion through the leagues.
Just five days later, a side made up of Hillary Herridge, Tanner, Lueer, Peter Fox and Sven Rowan continued the winning streak with a 5-0 whitewash of Hood Park in the cup competition.
These wins demonstrated the strength in depth of this Ashbourne squad, who have already achieved a league win and runners up in the cup in the last winter season, and won their summer league as well.
