Richard Vitty - Tue 24 May 2016

The final school squash event of the season ended recently with Gosforth Central Middle , Gosforth East Middle and Gosforth Junior Academy competing for the middle school cup.

This event is the culmination of nine months of outreach work into the local middle schools at year 5 by Northern’s squash coaches ,Liam Gutcher , Matt Hardy , Alex Robertson and Richard Vitty. The coaches deliver 4 weeks of PE lessons at each school based around hand / eye co ordination and then invite the best prospects back to Northern to learn how to play squash and represent their class in an inter class competition.

The best 6 boys and 3 girls from each school are then invited to represent their school in the Gosforth Middle school cup.

East Middle have always won this event , so it was a bit of an upset when Central stormed through this year to win by only one point from the Junior Academy.

Many of the children that have been shown squash during this process have now joined the club and it’s coaching programme , thus helping to secure Gosforth’s reputation for school squash.
