Ger­rards Cross widen the gap with em­phatic win

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

HAV­ING nudged ahead of third­placed Wy­combe SRC in the Bucks Squash League Divi­sion One, sec­ond­placed Ger­rards Cross widened the gap this week with an em­phatic win over their ri­vals.

Michael Bur­nett and Ste­wart Hef­fer­nan won the first two games 3-0, and al­though Adam Pyne replied with a 3-0 tri­umph for Wy­combe, Steve Wright won 3-1 and Trevor Lo­ran 3-2 to seal a 16-6 Cross vic­tory.

Lead­ers Ayles­bury Gram­mar School thumped Bea­cons­field Lions 18-5 to ex­tend their lead at the top to 48 points, with Uxbridge mov­ing up to third, while Holmer Green’s 16-8 win over Che­sham Bois 1a pushed the Lions to the bot­tom.

Else­where, a cu­ri­ous Divi­sion Two match be­tween a lack­lus­tre Wy­combe Drifters and Che­sham 1879 saw five re­sound­ing wins in a real see-saw en­counter. Firstly, Neil Hol­lis­ter won 3-0 for Che­sham, fol­lowed by Jon Ould 3-0 for Wy­combe. This pat­tern con­tin­ued with Gavin Lund com­ing up trumps 3-0 for Che­sham, fol­lowed by Rob Wal­lace 3-0 for Wy­combe.

Ja­cob Sut­ton main­tained the sym­me­try with an­other 3-0 win for Che­sham to seal a 13-6 vic­tory, which was enough to over­take RAF at the bot­tom of the pile.

At the top, Che­sham Bois Mav­er­icks stayed at the sum­mit with a 17-5 win over Bea­cons­field Bulls, while their club­mates, the Tigers, are start­ing to bare their teeth, beat­ing a spir­ited Farn­ham Com­mon 13-6 to main­tain se­cond place with two matches in hand.
