KSC4 visited high riding Macc2, Hindley already negotiating a move down the order, was this for a crack at the lovely Annika!
First up a battle of the Rob’s, won by Rob who started at a blistering pace befit of the young player he was. Our Rob toiled valiantly gave it all in the third and sneaked a game in what will be one of the toughest 5th string games of the year.
Meanwhile Hindley was licking his lips at the thought of playing with Annika!
Next on John, against another improving youngster. This game threatened to turn dirty as John’s verbal outbursts set to dominate the young Tom. Tom kept coming back for more, his recovery demoralising for the older KSC player, retrievals that at times appeared physics defying. With John asking for more and more (lets), Tom didn’t respond until midway through the third as he whipped our John across the back of the legs, branding him with a big letter C, (a racket shaped C)- ouch. But that spurred John on and as he took the game to Tom, pulling one back, but despite asking politely for more- “please sir, please sir, please sir” went down in 4. In the end all smiles, but that legs gonna be 50 shades of black and blue darker!
Meanwhile was Hindley’s heart rate getting faster at the thought of Annika?
Next a rematch, Will versus Ollie. Last time Will ran Ollie into the ground and sneaked a 3-2 win, but would Will prevail on Ollie’s home turf? Well, Ollie took the first but wasn’t up for a running match as Will took the next 3- KSC4 were back in the match.
Hindley on next, dropping down the order to build his fitness. Alas there was no Annika, but a returning Div 2 player after an 11 year squash holiday and with a 2677 ranking, highest in Div 5, a ranking which would have got him in our first team! Valiant effort by Tony, a couple of very close games as he notched his first loss 3-1.
Finally the skip at 1 against Annika’s Dad, spanker of Slater last time round. No spanking this time as the skip edged 2 games out of 5 against a 2595 ranked Div 5 player.
