THE new world record for the longest ever competitive squash match, set by Guy Fotherby and Darren Withey last month, has been confirmed by Guinness.

The pair of Thame sportsmen smashed the record after a gruelling 31 hours, 35 minutes and 34 seconds.

Their marathon court performance at Racquets Fitness Centre lasted a staggering 475 consecutive games.

They have so far raised almost £9,000 for charity with donations still rolling in as they try to hit their £10,000 target.

The charities benefiting from the duo’s astonishing achievement are Cancer Research and the Chiltern Centre for Disabled Children.
