In our last match before Christmas the team travelled to Wessex 1 in Swindon who were top of the league and after a couple of last minute drop outs we were always going to be up against it.
Sean played first, making his team squash debut against Justine, and after getting to 1-1 her greater experience showed finally winning the match in four - great to see a new team player in action. Jerry was up against Mike and after losing the first two games, he made a brilliant turn around to win 3-2 - definitely the match of the night. Paul played the very tricky JP and after winning the first game struggled with his fitness having only just come back from injury. Richard then played Gareth and although played some lovely shots and pushed Gareth hard, he was too strong on the night winning in three. Mark played the final match of the evening against the talented Josh Watkins and although he pushed Josh really hard in the third he also went down in three.
We now have a few weeks off before the league starts again in January but we are delighted to have had a team in Wiltshire leagues again after several years and managed to win 50% of our matches which is a great performance.
