Squash legend was a glaring omission

It was with some concern that I read Alan Biggs’ article on Sheffield‘s sporting prowess in last week’s Telegraph.

The omission of Nick Matthew from his list was astounding!

Current and twice World Squash champion, the only Englishman to win the World Championship in a sport played by millions in over 150 countries!

How many World Champions have been born and bred in Sheffield ?

Three times winner of the British Open Squash Championship, the only Englishman to have done that.

Double Gold medallist at the last Commonwealth Games in Delhi.

A record four times winner of the British National Squash title.

Yes, I’m biased but sorry Mr Biggs it was a glaring omission.
