Coffs juniors rise in ranks
COFFS Harbour’s Jacob Ford has made his way to the Australian Age Squash Championships in Geelong Victoria, starting today. Ford will be contesting the under-17 Individuals and is seeded No 1.
He has a first round bye before taking on Declan Cashman, of WA.
The finals are scheduled for Tuesday and Jacob is positive of his chances. He has had a good preparation in the weeks prior so he will be looking to produce his best in the largest field of players in the tournament for all age groups with total entries exceeding 200 players from across Australia.
From Thursday, Jacob will spearhead the Squash NSW Bluetongues U17 team in the National State Team Championship contested over four age groups from U13s to U19s. NSW will look to improve its standing from 2016 and hope to regain a top two position. Inter Club visit NOMINATIONS for the Kempsey Inter Club visit are nearly finished and we require only a couple more players to join the group.
Play gets under way on Sunday, October 8.
