4th and 3rd Team Report by Richard Morris. With half term week and many players away on holidays the 3rds and 4ths were fielding weakened teams. On Wednesday the 4th team faced top of the table Poult Wood who brought down a very strong team and beat us 4-1. Our only win coming from Paul Mcleod who beat the teenager Jed Wilton in straight sets. Richard Morris took Simon Wanford to a fifth set but couldn’t finish him off. Ed Wales and John Shotton both had very tough matches losing in straight sets. 15 year old Jemima Morris played very well and had a close contest but also losing in 3. On Thursday the 3rd team travelled to Dulwich with a full team thanks to Nick Donald and Chris Beale cancelling their league match and agreeing to play at last minute. Dulwich were at full strength and Colin Atkins and Richard Morris did well to nick a game each against tough opponents. Nick and Chris both went down 3-0, although showing excellent fighting spirits. But the match of the season was the battle between Paul Mcleod, playing for a second night in a row and Ben Weatherill. This was a match not to miss. Paul narrowly lost the first 10-8 having been 8-6 up, then going down heavily in the 2nd 9-3. All the bets were on a 3-0 defeat, but with squash of the highest standard, Paul fought back to win the 3rd and 4th 9-3 and 9-4. Ben was literally rocking on his feet like a punch drunk Apollo Creed going into the 12th round. Now the bets were on Paul finishing him off. Remarkably Ben found a new lease of life and looked to have it serving for the match at 8-2 up. Paul, or Rocky to continue the analogy, hung in their holding off at least half a dozen match balls to get back to 6-8, but then his legs went and Ben struck the winning point. A 5 2nd Team match Report by Dean Newbury After a week off the 2nd team returned to action last night against Bexely 3rds AWAY. With 1 player short after a frantic ring around for a replacement on Wednesday morning they secured a comfortable 4-1 (15-5) victory. First on was club stalwart John Lawton at 4 who secured a slightly nervy 3-1 win. Martin Snow was on next at 3 and despite usually starting slow was off fairly quickly with a 3-0 win. Next on was Dean Newberry at 1, this again was 3-0. Last on even thou he was itching to go on first was new club member David Speed at 2. He secured a 3-1 win over the tricky and ever youthful Floyd. With two wins from the first two matches back to back titles could be a possibility.
