Another PSL season comes to an end...We had some fantastically close matches but somehow managed to lose the majority of them 3-2!
The big success was introducing some new players.
The most successful was the signing of Emily Whitlock(world 25) , who gave the crowd a real treat with some high quality squash... she also managed to win all but one of her games
In the second to last home game Abdula al tamimi debuted for us....and he is the real deal - ranked number 1 in the world under 19's he entered the mens tour 8 months ago and has climbed to 80 in the world already... he demolished Dave Evans former world 3 in 32minutes and played with an all out attacking style that was really entertaining to watch
And of course the Big man Gregory Gaultier on the day he went to world number 1 played for us against Surrey Health & Rackets. Those of you that were lucky enough to watch saw him toying with Peter Barker (world 7) and demonstrating why he is the number 1.
As always this season was made possible by DB Motors (Dereck Bull), H2o Plumbing and Heating, Broughten Utilites (kevin Kilroy), Hayward Guitar ( Richard Corcoran), Racquet Centre...who all sponsored the team and helped us put on some world class squash at the club....Also big thanks to Matt Yates/Russell Brookes & Steffan Stanton who all put a lot of time and effort in to making the season a success....Looking forward to next season we are looking to retain most of our team but really want to strengthen up as well so we can turn the 3-2 loses into 3-2 wins - this obviously comes with a slightly higher players wages bill, so we are very actively looking for more sponsors to help finance the team....any interested parties please get in touch..
Hope you all enjoyed the squash...next up club champs!
All the Best
