A squash player from Melbourn has played her part in a success for England.
Kate Bradshaw was one of the six-strong Over 35 side that took the overall win at the Masters Squash Home Internationals.
Played in Cardiff, England took on and beat both Ireland and Scotland before defeating the hosts to lift the trophy.
Bradshaw was involved in the win over the Scots, as was fellow Cambridgeshire county player Reka Gay.
The game against Wales saw the two unbeaten sides in the tournament come together.
Bradshaw got things going with what turned out to be a hard-fought victory.
She had seen a two-set lead evaporate at 8-8 in the fifth it could have gone either way.
- 1 New cops truck catches out law-breaking drivers in successful week
- 2 Drug dealer jailed after being found with heroin and crack cocaine
- 3 Man sentenced for handling stolen goods - including designer watch, clothes and laptop
- 4 Goalkeeper with incurable brain tumour overwhelmed by fundraiser response
- 5 Ian Stewart 'appeared odd' at wife Diane's funeral, court hears
- 6 Jail for fraudulent accountant who tried to steal £200k of employer’s money
- 7 Cyclist in hospital with life-threatening injuries after crash
- 8 Face coverings no longer mandatory indoors as England returns to Plan A
- 9 Bank cards, electrical items and jewellery stolen in burglary
- 10 Ian Stewart murder trial: Diane 'suffered lack of oxygen for up to an hour'
However, fending off a match point and to the crowd’s disappointment, Bradshaw rallied and clinched the game with a 12-10 success.
The rest of the matches went almost without a hitch as England clinched the title.
