Annual Squash v Tennis Cricket trophy

It is the the annual challenge cricket match against Tennis on Sunday 7th September (afternoon.)

 The match is a leisurely 20 overs each - with each player bowling 2 overs each and batsmen retire at 25 runs. To avoid biased umpiring, we don't play lbw and to keep the game moving we give 4 for a wide!

 The tally of those matches played so far, though no one is counting, is Squash 6 wins and Tennis 2, since we started in 2002. 

Could those who are interested in representing squash please let Bill Jackson know.

Alsager 1 v Knutsford 2

KSC 2 no match for high flying "Promotion Champs" Alsager 20-0

It was one's Steve C to start this week on the warm Alsager court. A poor start at that and quickly two behind (9-3, 9-1) despite the long rallies and attacking kills. At the end of game three Steve was able to hold his head up high having got to six! Still a long way off Alsager’s level and L3-0.

Graham Wood didn’t have much luck on the other court either, his opponent Steve Hammond won it in 3-0 (9-0,9-1,9-2).

Gary took on Mike Cole and dealt out some great shots- accurate, long, tight. Cole’s reply was dropping early and then attacking on his serve leaving little time for Gary to recover.   The result another L3-0 (9-1,9-3,9-2).

Even now we had high hopes for Greg against the Alsager youngster Chris Riley. His improved game had tremendous speed getting forward and left Greg studying the player manual. He managed to settle into the match and played Alsager front to back and wrong footed with a drive to show signs of a Knutsford victory.  Chris blew up a bit and the forced errors helped Greg’s cause but not the result, Chris too fast getting forward but good effort Greg! L3-0 (9-5,9-2,9-1).

Last man John against Tom Raftery.  Again Alsager had the most advantage on court, John probably the best touch in moving his opponent around but Alsager's composure was impressive and stepped in to take the Lions share of the points. In the end John's efforts made little impression on Toms grip on the game. John resigned to join the losers bench. 3-0 (9-0,9-0,9-4).

Knutsford 2 v Grove Park 4

19-6 to Grove Park despite 2 home courts and quality reserve players.

Mike Walton started us and stayed level in his match until the 2nd ½ hammer GP finding extra width and length to win in three (6-9, 4-9, 4-9).

Graham (2nd string) took on Ben the only young gun in the GP side and they went toe to toe in front of a busy balcony drawing supporters over from the finished Walton match.  We were treated to vintage Woods and he romped away 1 up, but for a “niggle” in his calf it could have been 2 up.  The third game produced more good squash with Graham piling pressure on the GP b/h and forcing aggressive returns.  From 2 all the onlookers expected “Woodsy’s” controlled squash to overcome GP, but he faded in the 5th and GP pushed hard for the taste of victory. L2-3, (10-8, 3-9, 9-7, 3-9).

Next one on; Steve C’s return game against Phil Stafford.  Steve got his usual good start and sported a good fitness level,  going 4 up and then a game down!  Straight through in game 2 bagging a point for the team but by game 3 Phil had seen the light and played some fine boasts & volleys.  Game 4 drew more soft touches from Steve and GP enjoyed a comfortable 1-3 (5-9, 9-2, 2-9, 1-9).  On the bright side there were plenty of good rallies.

Dave Smith lost 0-3 (3-9, 2-9, 9-10).  He played well and never gave up on a rally and came close in 3 but Scarle was not going to let it slip.

Greg put in tactical performance against his opponent the infamous Rod Boswell, kept his mind in the here and now and used f/h drives to kill off weak returns to move 2 up.  Rod showed great discipline and a skilful touch to level the match before Greg reasserted his tight squash to bank the 3 points.

Well done Seconds! Winning some important points.
