1. Mark Fuller vs Evan Williams (World Ranked 85) (Lost 11/9 4/11 11/6 12/10)
I didn’t get to see this match as it was past my bedtime. But Mark had a tough match playing Kiwi Evan. He went down, but I know he’d have fought to the death
2. Owain Taylor vs Taminder Gata Aura (Won 14/12 12/10 6/11 7/11 5/11)
Really enjoyed watching this one, two skilled shot players in a shoot out. Great match. Owain was two love down but came back to win 3-2
Quote from Owain “I shouldn’t have messed around” – you’re right, but you came back and won so it’s OK this time
3. Stuart MacGregor vs Neil Cordell (Won 11/13 11/7 6/11 4/11)
Personally thought this was a great result for Stu. Neil has been top player, so to come back and take a victory on his debut for the club was a great effort. Stu just ground him down from what I could see
Quote from Stu “I played alright” – humble, nice result !
4. Dom Hamilton vs Alex Hodgetts (Lost 11/0 11/2 12/10)
A poor poor poor rusty cob webbed performance from myself, I can only improve from here. I’m working hard at it and will be firing in about three weeks.
Quote from Alex “Do you want cheese with that bagel” [ref 11-0 first game] – enjoy your moment Alex, I hope to play you on the return leg
5. Niall McKinnon vs Lewis Doughty (Lost 11/9 12/10 12/10)
Niall had a tough draw this week. Lewis is full time squash and world ranked 295. Rapidly approaching 40 and just travelled back from a days work in London to be honest I’d written Niall off before he even walked on court. But I have to say I was wrong, Niall genuinely had a chance of winning this, he played a very clever game, moved well, was clinical where he needed to be and patient elsewhere. Having his usual summer off, Niall now just needs more court time, it was the end of games where this showed and the only thing that made the difference.
