Inverness was strongly represented in the Scotland team that won bronze in the European Squash Team Championships in the Netherlands.
Scotland stalwarts Alan Clyne and Greg Lobban were joined by Inverness pair Alasdair Prott and Martin Ross, Fergus Richards from Elgin and Rory Stewart from Perth, to claim third place for Scotland at the team championships in Eindhoven.
Scotland won their group despite drawing 2-2 with Germany in the first match, quickly making up for that by going on to defeat the Czech Republic 3-1 and Spain 4-0 to progress to the semi finals.
Scotland lost in the semi-final with a 3-1 defeat to England.
They had a chance at redemption in the third place play-off against Germany, though, and won 3-1.
England were crowned men’s European champions after they defeated France 3-0 in the final, and also claimed the women’s title after they defeated Wales 2-1 in the final. Netherlands claimed women’s bronze after they beat France 2-0.
Lobban from North Kessock beat Clyne from Munlochy in the final of the Irish Open in Dublin last month.
Lobban paired with Stewart also won silver at the world doubles championship held in Glasgow last month with Clyne and Douglas Kempsell claiming bronze.
