THE junior squash section at Malvern's Manor Park now have three county champion players.

Dominic Bayley came first in the under 17s and was runner-up in the under 19s.

Peter Slater-Jones was first in the under 15s and Jack Awuye-North won the under 13s.

Slater-Jones and Awuye-North are part of the development squad at Manor Park which is run by Josh Saysell on a weekly basis.

Bayley, who has his roots in Manor Park and plays regularly for the men's teams, has developed his game under the guidance of professional coach Chris Ryder at Solihull Arden Club.

Manor Park's own professional coach Saysell has worked with Ryder over the last few years and is now sharing his skills with their junior squash section.

A club spokesman said: "We are very proud of our champions as well as the rest of the junior players who are continually improving their squash skills.

"Over the last three years we have seen the junior section grow from a small number to now over 30 juniors attending our coaching sessions during the week from the ages of seven years to 16."

Manor Park have just held their closed annual squash championship competition.

Last year's victor Steve Earnshaw will be passing the title of Manor Park squash champion to Richard Montague-Fuller who after a powerful match against eventual runner-up Jack Young won the title for 2017.

The junior competition was won by Awuye-North with Ellis Golding as runner up.
