Triple Triumph for Michael
Talented teenager Michael Andrews is celebrating after winning two squash tournaments. Michael who is a member of Norton Squash Club and Tees Active Sports Academy was victorious at the Northumberland Junior Open Boys U15 tournament which was sponsored by Dunlop.
Thirteen year old Michael met Ben Marchant from Yorkshire in the final. Ben has recently had some great results against strong competition and almost had another victory when Michael began to impose himself on the match at a crucial point. Ben was 2 games to love up. Michael kept his head, played steady, tight shots as his new coach, Dave Barnett, had asked and managed to win the 3rd game. He went on to win the next two and the match 3 games to 2.
Michael was delighted with the win which has been followed up this week with two wins in his club’s championships, where he picked up the Norton Squash Club Boys U15 title and also won the Men’s Plate Competition beating tough opponents who play in the Men’s Durham and Cleveland County Leagues.
A happy but tired Michael said “ It was great to win these tournaments and my confidence and form is good, which is great as May is going to be an important month as I have entered several big tournaments where I know the competition is going to be tough.”
