Kate Bradshaw maintained her perfect record with England to help them retain their Women’s Over-35 Home International Trophy.

The Melbourn Squash Club member was in action at Nottingham Squash Club, and after sitting out the whitewash over Ireland, Bradshaw was called into action against Scotland, winning 3-0..

A 5-0 victory for England set up a decider against Wales, and Bradshaw’s 3-0 win in the 3-0 singles saw them lift the crown.

“There were a lot of nerves throughout the team for the crucial Wales match,” said Bradshaw. “I went on fourth, knowing that a win for me would ensure another England team victory, so I was definitely feeling the pressure.

“I was really focused as I knew it could go either way, but managed to secure a win so the team could relax for the last game, knowing we already had the title in the bag.”
