Wy­combe get sea­son un­der way with poor de­feat

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

WY­COMBE Squash & Racketball Club fi­nally got their sea­son up and run­ning this week – but it was not the best of starts.

Ju­nior Fred­die Evans won the open­ing rub­ber against Ger­rards Cross’ Rory Fisher 3-1, but it did not stop WSRC get­ting first day blues as they went down 15-8.

Wins for Stew­art Hef­fer­man and Michael Bur­nett turned the tide in Cross’s favour with 3-0 and 3-1 wins re­spec­tively be­fore Stu­art Bur­nett gave WRSC hope with a 3-1 win against Steve Wright.

It left the vis­i­tors just a point down go­ing into the fi­nal rub­ber, but Mike Hally was beaten 3-1 by Cross’s Andy Peers, giv­ing the hosts vic­tory, plus the four bonus points for the win.

Vic­tory means Cross have started the sea­son with three wins and they sit just two points be­hind Divi­sion One lead­ers and reign­ing cham­pi­ons Ayles­bury Gram­mar who look to be hit­ting their stride once again, their lat­est suc­cess be­ing an em­phatic 19-5 win over Bea­cons­field Lions.

Last year’s Divi­sion 2 Cham­pi­ons Wy­combe 2s (aka No­mads) lost on their trav­els to the RAF.

The match ac­tu­ally ended 10-10 in terms of games, but with the RAF hav­ing taken three rub­bers to two, they gained the four bonus points for a 14-10 win over­all.

Be­hind them Holmer Green 2s are the near­est pur­suers af­ter de­feat­ing Che­sham Bois Mav­er­icks 15-8.

Mean­while, Wy­combe Ladies 2s opened their cam­paign in Ladies’ Divi­sion 2 with a game of two halves against a com­bined Wind­sor and Farn­ham Com­mon team. Fleur Drumer and He­len Cardy won 3-0 and 3-1 against Farn­ham Com­mon’s Lucy Varco and Ali­son Burge, but Brenda Ede and Jan Bai­ley lost to their Wind­sor coun­ter­parts by the same score, leav­ing the match a 9-9 tie.
