International call for Phil

Share this article

Phil Godfrey, a stalwart of March and District Squash Club for many years, has just achieved international status and will play for England in a series of matches against Ireland, Scotland and Wales in the coming weeks.

Godfrey plays on the veterans circuit during the year in regional tournaments, culminating in the National Championships, which have just concluded. Unfortunately, he was carrying an injury in that tournament and did not do himself justice but he did enough to earn the points to qualify for the team in the over 60s.

The club earned further distinction by having two other players nominated as reserves for the squad in their respective age groups, Matt Fiveash, the club captain, in the over 35s and Roger Middleton in the over 70s.
