Match: Knutsford 1 Away to Grove Park 3
Date: 7th October 2010
Unbeaten knutsford 1 turned up confident, heads held high,
spirits strong and high fives all round.... Grove park 3 had the
show court all prepared (nice and pink) and we were ready......
that was the highlight of the evening. What ensued was most painful
except an exceptional display by the burkester and of course the
smithernator. The signs of a damp evening were on the cards as a
leaking roof moved the match to a nice green court.
First up was Stevie C at 4 against a young lady Miss West, or
was it Wade or Ward.... why cant everyone be called Smith like
us!!!... Risley going to change his name by deed poll and submit a
formal complaint to the league for such confusing names and sickly
coloured courts!!! Is squash supposed to be played inside a cake?
In the meantime our man played most gentlemanly and gave the 1st
game to the young lady....and the second....then decided that he
wasn't going to get a date and starting playing squash in the
third. Kirsty took the game 3-1 and ksc got off to a bad start.
On came burkey at 3 against a young chap by the name of Wade.
not yet having been introduced to a razor. After trying to knock
the spots off the ball in the warm-up the little fella just
couldn't cope with our man who was on fire and JB won easily 9-1,
Next up was Risley at 5 against senior Ward. Undeserving of a
match report he lost 3-0, now without wasting good words on a poor
performance lets go onto the next match. Mr Smith at 2..... Chris
that is, sporting a very swollen foot against mad man signor Lomax.
Wild swings from Lomax, lets, arguments, Lomax smacking the ball
like he wanted to bury it in the plaster wall with a swing that was
ready to take poor old smithy's head off he went quickly and
dangerously up 9-1. Smithy got angry and took the next 9-5 but ran
out of juice with his foot and went down 3-1.
Now with the first loss of the season and our star player not
yet having taken part we at least wanted to watch some squash. Did
we get it?? Well not in the first. Risley watched the warm up and
departed to get a shower, boasting to mad man Lomax in the changing
rooms that he should watch our no1. Oh dear! When he returned the
smithernator was game ball down and lost it 9-0!!! What was going
on? The smithster then remembered that he was a good squash player
and delighted us with his usual drives to length and punishing drop
shots, he won the next games 9-3, 9-4 and 9-0. Phew!!!
So we got 8 points at least. Chips and chilli went down well and
was delightfully served by the female staff. Knutsford could learn
a thing or 2!!
Over and miserably out.
