|Report:||CCO welcomed the league leaders who had beefed up their order calling in young Lewis, fresh from a successful weekend at the British Junior Open.
The elder statesmen of each team got the evening off to an enjoyable start with some nice squash but their old man proved to be too strong for our old man and our guests were one up.
James proudly wore the LCC 'wally of the last week' pink attire and overcame Graham in four tightly contested games, with Graham once again securing a game (not set!) that would avert a possible whitewash.
Lewis showed the class of a proper premier division player and Charles demonstrated why he is knocking on the door of LCC first team in combatting sterling efforts from Frostie and Toughmudder respectively. if only Charles wasn't the wrong side of ………. 20, then Breeny might consider him !!
it has often been said that there is no such thing as a dead rubber and this evening was no exception as Jacko and young Luke took their 'last match on' responsibilities very seriously indeed.
with glasses charged the capacity crowd were treated to a match of contrasting styles and some superb squash, see-sawing to 2-2 before having gained sage advice from all four of his teammates before the final game (not set!) Luke won a fantastic fifth to secure a full house for our visitors to take back across the Mersey gateway bridge (don't forget to pay the toll Ryan)
So a fantastic evening of squash played in the correct spirit and some superb squash played by our guests which when you weren't the man on the receiving end was wonderful to watch. Our season will not be defined by nights such as these but by games agianst LCC 3, Xaverian and Woolston so whilst it is great to see squash being reported in our excellent local paper, it is disappointing that their correspondent should only choose to draw their copy from the results.
Whilst results have not gone in our favour, we have actually had players on holiday and subsequently two players suffering injuries that mean that they are unable to play for the whole season. This unavailability means that we have used eight players in Division 2 drawing on players from our second team who whilst sometimes playing out of their comfort zone have risen to the challenge, enjoyed playing with and against better players and supported their club through a difficult time.
So may I take this opportunity to invite the correspondent from the Chester Standard to join us at Cheshire County Sports Club on Thursday 21st November when we host Woolston Squash Club and our thirds play local rivals Tattenhall 2 to enjoy a NWCSL Thursday night. Ask your editor to stump up for a black cab or an Uber and we'll buy you a few drinks and treat you to a 'China Garden' takeaway.
drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll make the arrangements
