From: Colin Atkins The 3rds match against Nuffield Health 1 was a bottom of the table clash and with neither team yet to register a win thus far this season something had to give. First up was Colin at 3 who took the opening game in 9 straight rallies and despite a closer 2nd ran out a comfortable winner. Paul at 2 took time to get to grips with the lack of heating on court A but as is Paul’s way, he delivered when it mattered and ran out a 3-2 victory in the only close match of the evening. John Shotton at 5 played a niggly match with his opponent having a penchant for calling a let, but youth won the day as John kept his composure and won in 3 close games. Anthony at 1 was fresh from a week in the treatment room and nothwithstanding a close first game showed no signs of rustiness in registering a comfortable 3-0 victory. Last on court was Ed who faced wily veteran Karen Hume and newly crowned World No.1 O55s. We thought this could be a close encounter with contrasting squash styles but Ed played the perfect match and ran Karen round the court in the process of easing to a 3-0 success. So an excellent showing all round, a first win and 20 points.
