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 YPL 29.1.20

CHAPEL A 1 v QUEENS HALIFAX (6-19)

5. ALEC FOSTER lost to SARAH CAMPION 2-3.

Alec was up against former world top 20 player Campion (nee Kippax) but was looking pretty confident in the early stages. I think he can be quite tricky if you haven’t played him before and Campion certainly found this, regularly beaten by the Foster boast, especially from the backhand. This edginess also allowed Alec to dominate the middle and nullify Campion’s athleticism, Alec taking the first two games. Then Campion’s past life as a pro started to become evident as she pushed her way to a crucial third and Alec was visibly tiring. The fourth and fifth were quite comfortable for the Queens player as the roles were reversed and Campion came through in five.

4. CAM WARD lost to LEWIS HARDING 0-3.

Cam’s opponent today looked very keen and also very light, like he was prepared to run all day! Harding could play a bit too as he seems to have all the answers against a frustrated Cam. The long rallies weren’t enjoyed by Cam who started to force things a little, affecting his shot selection, Harding winning in three.

3. PAUL ALLEN lost to HARRIS QASIM 0-3.

Qasim is a 17 year old Pakistani junior from Lahore who had recently competed at the British Junior Open in Birmingham. It was quite obvious of his talent from the first rally as he had Paul doing some serious work in all four corners. Paul, by his own admission was a little slow to start, and Qasim was taking full advantage of this, playing crisp drives and smashing winners in from all over the court, 3-0 Queens.

  1. OWAIN TAYLOR lost to CONNOR SHEEN 1-3.

These two know each other well and usually have close matches and today was no exception. Sheen, who is currently 128 in the PSA world rankings, started the brighter against Owain, who is  186 in the PSA rankings. The first game was close though, lots of long rallies, but with Sheen hitting slightly better lines allowing him more time in the middle to hold the ball. They shared the first two games and went into the crucial third. Owain still wasn’t able to attack with enough precision to really hurt Sheen, who seems to have improved his short game, allowing Queens to take this rubber in four.

2. MARK FULLER beat JAMES EARLES 3-2.

No person or team likes to be “bagled” so it was up to the pride of Fuller to restore some pride to the home team tonight. Earles hasn’t been pro for a few years now but still plays a fantastic brand of squash, very attacking, excellent mover, and it was all Earles in the first game. The diminutive lefty was playing winning trickle boasts, deft drop shots and all Mark could do was watch in admiration. But one huge weapon Fuller possesses is strength of heart and mind. This inner strength helped him back into the match, taking the second, extending the rallies and generally making life difficult for the talented Earles. Earles squeezed the third 11-9 but the signs of fatigue were starting to show, giving Fuller optimism to keep pushing. And push he did, with the small crowd enjoying some fantastic squash from both players, with Fuller coming through in a marathon 11-9 in the fifth!

Next home match is 4th place Dunnington at 7.30pm Wednesday 19th February 2020.

We are now up to 7th place and are looking for a respectable top 5 finish after a difficult season.

This I believe is possible but not without your continued support.

SEE YOU ON THE 19th FEB!!!

SIMON PARKE.

1ST TEAM CAPTAIN.
