Bucks’ pro­mo­tion push


Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

WY­COMBE Squash and Rack­et­ball Club hosted Stage One of the Na­tional In­terCoun­ties Squash Com­pe­ti­tion on be­half of Bucks County at the week­end.

A full-strength Bucks squad, in­clud­ing WSRC’s Tom Power, as well as Thomas Phipps, Matt Mar­shall, Alex Preston, Dar­ren Withey and Trevor Lo­ran, beat Kent seconds, Cam­bridgeshire and Suf­folk to fin­ish first and progress to the Di­vi­sion One pro­mo­tion group.

Three of WSRC’s four men’s teams were also in Bucks League ac­tion and the firsts’ mis­er­able re­turn to Di­vi­sion One con­tin­ued as they went down 15-8 to Che­sham Bois 1B. Telmo Peix­inho and Stu­art Bur­nett both won for Wy­combe, but the team were al­ready 3-0 down, with James Pear­son, Rob Parry and Neil Hinds win­ning for Che­sham.

At the top, cham­pi­ons Che­sham Bois 1A claimed a walkover against Ayles­bury, and Bea­cons­field Tigers con­vinc­ingly beat Holmer Green 18-8.

It was a dif­fer­ent story in Di­vi­sion Two, where WSRC seconds wal­loped Che­sham Bois Up­starts 19-1 to main­tain their top spot and 100 per cent record, with wins for Andy Wal­ters, Mark Brown, Chris Popham, Petr Nedzari­lik, and Matt Al­lan­son.

The four teams be­hind all played each other, with Bea­cons­field Bulls and Bears suf­fer­ing a dou­ble re­verse to Che­sham Bois Ju­niors and Che­sham 1879.

How­ever, in Di­vi­sion Three, WSRC thirds lost their own 100 per cent record after com­ing un­stuck in a top-of-the-ta­ble clash against Bea­cons­field Tro­jans, los­ing all five rub­bers and 19-3 over­all, with only Fred­die Evans, Laura Blakey and Dave Evans tak­ing a game apiece.
