Sixteen year old Georgy Ivakhnenko has become Bridport Squash Club’s Junior Champion.
In a thrilling, hard-fought match he had to come back from two games behind against his 14 year old opponent George Brent. Having brought the match to two games all, it was all down to the fifth game which was very evenly matched and produced some fine rallies with excellent retrieving from George who at one time held 2 match points but Georgy fought back and took four points in a row to take the match 12-10.
The trophy was presented to Georgy by former BSC Junior Champion and newly qualified coach Neson Wood.
