Seconds Give Wilmslow a Scare
It was 2 matches all. Waring was 2-2 in games vs Amin. He was
hand-in at 9-8 (match point) after having
clawed his way back from the jaws of defeat. What happened ? Yep,
you've guessed - he lost 10-9,
leaving Wilmslow to win the match 17-9. That last point was worth
6 points in the league! Knutty could
have beaten title-chasing Wilmslow 15-11. Well played Waring -hard
Knutty winners were Evo (3-2, just) and Costello (3-1), with
another classy performance.
Whitty played well but was unable to triumph against Donague. On
another day, the result could easily
have been reversed. Then on to Streff (just dumped from the
Firsts) on the command of non-playing
Chairman Abramovich-Walton. It turned out that Abramovich did have
a point - Streff looked rusty and
was never allowed to get into the groove and lost easily (3-0).
However, opponent Troup is a possibly the
best player in Div 4 South - now that's something he could put on
It was the Farmers Arms afterwards for a curry and proper beer. An
excellent old-fashioned pub.
Miscellaneous: The Rectory has changed into a Steakhouse and is
now too posh to host squash teams.
Wilmslow Squash club may disband at the end of this season -
though they may struggle on if they are
