Welcome to the York & District Squash League...

We exist to encourage the game of squash at all levels in the York area, and to organise local leagues and tournaments. Our sister organisation runs the women's leagues, with most of the same clubs entering both men's and women's teams.

We also support junior squash, which is actively developed by several of our affiliated clubs.

Riley Cup 2017 Champions Kirkbymoorside 2

Kirkbymoorside 2 led by John Sugarman travelled the short distance south to Stillington Sports & Social Club to take on a Wigginton 5/6 team captained by Andy Frost.

Andy had been a been a marvellous supporter of the competition agreeing to 3 games in 4 days after early rounds were left too late and their QF opponents were still unknown a week before the final!  The big battle came in the semi final though.  Wigginton 6, currently bottom of the bottom division were away to David Lloyd who are sat at the top of the top division!  An eye watering handicap of 188 saw Wigginton 6 win through with the slim winning margin of 3 points.

KMS2 had an easier route to the final getting past Selby 4 easily in the semi-final.  Not surprisingly the away trip to the far north from the far south didn’t appeal and KMS 2 received the walkover.

Teams on the night:

Kirkbymoorside 2

Allan Bailey (drew)
Darren Kellett (lost by 14)
John Sugarman (c) (lost by 13)
Rick Eve (won by 12)
Steve Leech (won by 23)

Wigginton 5/6

Deborah Harvey (drew 39-39)
Bob Hollingsworth (won by 14)
Rachael Webster (won by 13)

York & District Veterans & Vintage Championships 2017

York & District Veterans & Vintage Championships

2017

The York and District Veterans (o-40) and Vintage (o-50) were held at Wigginton Squash Rackets Club between Sun 19th & Fri 24th November.  There was a disappointing entry in both competitions but that did not detract from the squash played. Both competitions were played in an excellent spirit, with a great attitude on court which is always great to see.  Players came from Wigginton, York RI , York, Stillington, David Lloyd & Pocklington.

If anyone has missed out on the communication and would like to be informed directly next season, instead of failing to see notice on the website or not being passed info by club representatives then please email  Nick Clifford and you will be put on an email list for next season! – nickandsheila@tiscali.co.uk

To the finals night….despite having 12 (some dual members) out of 16 entrants Wiggy came away with two plate final wins and left the titles to go to David Lloyd & Pocklington players.

The Over 40’s Veterans plate was between Wiggy third team players Nick Clifford and Chris Codrai, there was no mercy shown despite a knackered knee as Chris put away Nick 3-0 against the team seeding……!

The Over 50’s – Vintage Plate was again two Wiggy team players Dave Bullivant & Mike Goryl but this time team nominations held true as Mike beat Dave 3-1.

The Y & D Vintage Champion 2017 is Alastair Dick of Pocklington who beat Wiggy’s Rob Cooper 3-0. Rob was getting into the match in the 3rd game as Alastair was beginning to “puff” a little but he held on to win. Alastair has had a season out of squash with an injury believing he would never play again , so it is nice to see him regaining his fitness and back on court playing. Congratulations.

The Y & D Veterans Champion is James Rollinson of David lloyd, despite being run close by Adam Smith (3-2) in round 2 then Mark Thomas (3-1) in the semi he beat Wiggintons Angus Clapham 3-0 in the final. Angus who ran a few miles on court, made too many mistakes to make the match go past 3 games, which a “Point a Rally” to 11 match cannot forgive. Congratulations James.

Chris Codrai & Nick Clifford : Mike Goryl & Dave Bullivant 
Alastair Dick & Rob Cooper : James Rollinson & Angus Clapham

Kirkbymoorside 2nd Team

Kirkbymoorside 2nd Team

The squash club at Kirkbymoorside is approaching 35 years old and has a recent upturn in fortune so much so that a 2nd team was requested in the York & District League for the current season.

Sadly, it was too late to avoid major disruption and KMS2 has had to be put on hold for a season.  With a squash of 18 players for one team, the situation was difficult for Club Captain John Marsh and John Sugarman, the 2nd team Captain to be.

In a superb effort, John has set about creating friendly fixtures against the current Division 5 teams. Thank you to the teams already having arranged fixtures.  I will be keeping a track of the results on this website with a percentage table of games won.  If Kirkbymoorside are top of the table at the end of the season, it will be a good indicator that they will be at home in Div 4 not Div 5 next season.
