Jared & Katy, 2018 CHAMPIONS!
CAPTAINS please check your Spring League fixtures and NOW is the time to tweak your nominations (playing order) if you need to. Autumn League Champs TR2 are only going to improve so others with ambitions need to take them seriously! Have you ever heard the footy expression ‘You’ll never win anything with kids!’? Well, we all know what happened! In Div 2 Bodmin are favourites with a full side out each week whilst Bude look a decent bet too. Can the TR4 ‘Geriaticos’ cause a few upsets and the Pirates are certainly look reinforced for a few broadsides?!?! It’s all to play for in both Divs after the festivities conclude…….MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL!
It was billed as a BIG NIGHT at Truro HQ as TR2 hosted rivals Tr1 to decide the Autumn League and that all-important first place at the play-off in April. Unfortunately, injuries and some disappointing ‘unavailability’ reduced the TR1 challengers to just two fit players! The Big Night became a ‘Small Night’ with Tr2 winning 3-1 in rubbers. Tr2 become the youngest side in Cornish squash history to win the league! Well done to Tim’s boys!
The NOBs are back in town! The perfect P10 W10 with 145pts was emphatic enough! The Spring League will be tough with no soft matches for any side and barring unlucky injuries it will surely be won by the most consistent side again. Consistency will also decide that other sticky issue – RELEGATION! It all kicks off in the second week in January. Watch this space!
Neil, Tim, Jack, Tony & John
Six players from Cornwall entered the S of England Squash Masters at Winchester over the weekend recording a combined three wins with standout performer Jack Halford (China Fleet) reaching the QF only to go out narrowly 3-2 to the eventual winner in the tightest of matches. Surely Jack will get an England cap soon. Unfortunately, Tony and Jon pulled out due to injury from last weekend’s Cornwall Masters but Tim and Neil did us proud with two very impressive first round victories. Also flying the gold and black was Roger who also plays at Kennilworth S&RC. The Cornish certainly made their presence felt and are now well known on the circuit. Exeter is the venue for the W of England Masters on 5th and 6th January – you can enter via the http://www.englandsquashmasters.co.uk/ website.
