Yorkshire Premier League is the main attraction on the squash scene at Chapel Allerton this season, with top class squash on our show courts every week. Everyone is invited so bring your friends, and we welcome visitors from other local clubs.   All the players tend to join us in the bar afterwards and it is always a well attended night with a great atmosphere.   Chapel A 1 finished the 2016/17 league as Champions, but they just struggled to maintain their hold for the 2017/18 season, finishing second in the league. This year sees two teams in Premier Division once more so we can host top level squash every Wednesday.

PARKEY’S MATCH REPORT.

CHAPEL A 1 v PONTE 2

13.11.19

5. RIK SAUNDERS lost to BILLY HAWES 11/9, 7/11, 11/8, 9/11, 5/11.

Rik kindly stepped in at the eleventh hour when Richie Fallows unfortunately dropped out due to illness. This was an interesting match up as you had the stocky but skilful Hawes against the slight but dogged Rik. And the match proved to be tight, Rik just edging the first playing better length than his opponent and keeping Hawes deep. Hawes is also a fighter though, and amongst some arguing and contentious decisions managed to take the second. Rik got his length back in the third but after a change of ref, Hawes concentrated more on his game playing some clever squash to take it in 5.

4. ALEC FOSTER beat JOHN RILEY 8/11, 12/14, 11/4, 11/9, 11/8.

Alec is seeing his sights high at the moment and is certainly up for the challenge of this league.  Tonight he was up against ex Chapel stalwart John Riley, who was clearly keen to prove a point this old club. The first two were very tight with Riley just playing a little more precisely taking his opportunities a little better. But Alec had other ideas and was prepared to battle hard, taking the third comfortably an really starting to ask some difficult questions. The fourth and fifth were epic too though with both players giving it absolutely everything, and the match was getting quite noisy, not least with the refereeing style of our own Matty! Thankfully Alec played the big points better coming through 11/8 in the 5th.

3. CAMERON WARD lost to MATT GODSON 11/9, 8/11, 5/11, 8/11.

Cam started the match in fine attacking style, which is the way to play against Godson who is a fantastic athlete. Cam reaped the rewards in the first but a few more unforced errors in the second helped Godson to start to gain control. The match stayed pretty tight after that but with Godson able to put some work into Cam’s legs whilst he was soaking it up. At the end of the third Cam seemed like he had a slight back strain but managed to continue slightly hampered.Unfortunately though it was a losing battle with that loss of mobility, Godson taking it in 4.

2. JAMES WILKINSON lost to ADAM TAYLOR 1/11, 10/12, 8/11.

James was up against the very experienced and underrated Taylor, who is also quite unorthodox and deceptive! James unfortunately felt the full force of this in the first, thankfully not being bagel led but losing it 11/1. After this  slow start though, James showed great strength of character to push hard in the second and lengthen the rallies, just losing out in a tie-break. The third was a decent effort too but Taylor was mainly in control taking it in 3.

  1. MATTY POWELL lost to SAM TODD 5/11, 8/11, 5/11.

After Matty threatening not to play after “constantly being pumped by juniors” he saw sense and brought his “A” game down the M62 from Liverpool. And he certainly needed it of course playing against the best 16 year old in the world Todd. The first game saw Matty playing ok but just getting used to the impressive hitting from Todd losing it 11/5. The second though was pretty spectacular from Matty, he played some fantastic winners and flicks and had a real chance of taking it, causing all sorts of problems for Todd. Todd though is a prolific junior champion, and in the future possibly a World Champion, and had a few solutions taking a thoroughly entertaining match in 3.

Our next home match is Abbeydale 1 on 27th November 2019.
