TWO Stevenage youngsters have helped Hertfordshire to national squash success.

Louis Drakes (pictured above, left) and Nathan Derrick, both 14, were part of the six-strong Herts team which became national inter-counties under-15 champions at Lee-on-Solent, Hampshire.

The boys both had 3-0 victories in the final against Yorkshire as Herts won 3-2 overall.

This was after defeating Gloucestershire 4-1 in the semis and it followed several heats over previous weeks.
