IOM Juniors Show Great Potential
Five juniors from the IOM junior academy were invited to play in the Aspire Bronze England squash event in October 2019 in Manchester. These juniors were recommended by a North West Regional coach from Merseyside and invited to compete in the event because of the tremendous potential they have to develop as squash players. Ben Leith, Christian Webster, Emma Leith, Isaac Quayle and Callum Larkin all competed in the North West regional Championships. This event was for the best junior players from the North West of England. It was a big step up for some of the players in the IOM team, but they performed magnificently. The event also showed them what they need to aspire to in order to be able compete at the highest level.
The picture above shows the IOM Party that went to Manchester. Pictured from left to Right – Isaac Quayle, Christian Webster, Pat Fitzpatrick (Head coach), Ben Leith, Callum Larkin and Emma Leith.
