FANCY THAT: Newquay Old Boys wore wigs in their final game of the season at Truro

NEWQUAY Old Boys saw in the New Year in style having won the Cornwall Squash League Division Two title.

The team's final game, against Truro on Monday, December 4, saw all team members from throughout the season turn up to celebrate the victory.  

<p">For the duration of the season, the team have been running a fun fines process where each player must wear an item of fancy dress each week. It was chairman Martin Burnell's turn to choose for the Truro fixture and he decided everyone had to wear a wig to help with "team building, morale and all that!"

Newquay travelled to Truro for the last match of the year - safe in the knowledge that they had already secured promotion to Division One. Mark Campen-Howarth and Matt Waterton were rested but were in attendance to support the Old Boys in their clash against their nearest rivals.

Harry ‘The Heff’ Cobley powered through the fourth string match against Truro's fourth seed, bombarding his opponent with thunderous backhands. Carl Megson celebrated his birthday with a close fought win over Truro's number two seed after utilising his backhand drop to wear his opponent down.

Martin ‘The Gaffer’ Burnell had a tricky start but ground out a hard-fought victory against Truro's number three in a see-saw match that saw Burnell edge ahead on fitness. Andy ‘Slugger’ Ahearn returned to the team after a boxing injury to play in the top spot.

A rocky start put him behind but Ahearn recovered to make the scoreline 1-1. Using his volley-drop game to great effect, his opponent, Truro's number one seed, found no reply as Andy took a 3-1 win.

A fantastic season for the Old Boys was therefore topped off with a resounding 15-2 win over their Truro rivals.
