Squash: Ace passes away

Former Edinburgh squash star John McGhee has died, aged 53, after a long illness.

Capped 44 times, McGhee helped introduce a new generation to squash during the boom period of the 1970s and 80s.

Former Scotland and Edinburgh Sports Club colleague Ray Stevenson paid tribute, saying: "John and I didn't come from the traditional private school background but from Firrhill High where teacher Dougie Yule was a squash enthusiast. As a player John was renowned as a battler and it showed in the way he fought his illness."
