Guernsey have named their squash team for this summer's Island Games in Gibraltar as the sport returns to the programme after a six-year absence.

Four players will make their debuts, while Natalie Dodd and player-manager Lawrence Graham - who won mixed bronze together at Bermuda 2013 - will go to their third and second Games respectively.

The island has won two gold medals in the past with tour player Chris Simpson taking the singles title and Karen Dunk and Alison Strobridge winning the doubles in Shetland in 2005.

Ahead of the Games, Guernsey host Jersey in the Inter-Insular on 9 March, while the players will complete their warm-ups at the CI Champs in May/June.

  • Guernsey squash team for Gibraltar 2019: Lawrence Graham, Henry Birch, Janick Radford, Mark Le Conte, Natalie Dodd, Karen Robinson

A number of our players have been training hard to be selected for the Island Games so it’s great to be able to name them so that these players can focus their training a little bit more towards the Games.
