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

15.1.20.

YPL CHAPEL A 1 beat CHAPEL A 2   3/2 (16/7)

5. ALEC FOSTER beat ROSS WILLIAMSON 3/0.

This was the first match back after the holiday period and it’s always interesting to see who’s been working on their fitness on the court and who’s been working on their fitness in the pub! Williamson looked like the latter and by his own admission was not looking forward to the “Foster boast”. To be fair, Williamson started at a blistering pace, racing to a 5-0 lead, taking Alec by surprise. Alec though, stayed composed, and gradually found his rhythm. He also found better lines and extended the rallies, testing the Williamson engine. Alec was using the lobs too keeping the ball away from potential volleys, and in the end came through comfortably 8,6 and 6.

4. CAMERON WARD lost to SAM CANTLE 1/3.

Cameron played a pretty decent first game, playing very purposeful squash, forcing Cantle into some difficult positions. Cantle is a clever player though who looks like he’s playing a little more these days. This extra practise helped him turn things around in this match, extending the rallies, and forcing errors from a not quite at peak fitness Cam who was taking balls short too early.

3. PAUL ALLEN beat LUIS NORTH 3/0.

Paul went into this match looking like one of the few who has actually trained over Christmas, hitting the ball crisply, and not giving North much time. Paul’s line and length was good and when he had attacking opportunities he took them. north struggled to get Paul away from the T and mid way through each game Paul pulled away as North fatigued.

2. JAMES WILKINSON lost to IAN CHAPPELL 1/3.

Of all the matches tonight, this was the one people thought might be really tight. It started though with Chappell schooling James in line and length, taking the first. James is a fighter though, and managed to be a lot more positive in the second, volleying and attacking more, taking it 11-6. The third was tight and could’ve gone either way really, but it was probably Chappell’s experience in the big points that saw him through the crucial third. This seemed to dampen James’ spirits a little as he fatigued in the fourth and couldn’t really regain his form losing it 11-3.

  1. MARK FULLER beat DECLAN CHRISTIE 3/1.

Christie has improved a lot this season playing at 1 for the seconds and it showed tonight against seasoned pro Mark “Mad Dog” Fuller. In the first Christie was very attacking, especially drop shots into the front left area which were very accurate. Christie was playing out of his skin actually, anticipating crosscourt with volley winners all over the place and Mark was starting to look a little concerned! The second was tough too with Mark raising his game (he had to), but it still went to a tie break, Mark just squeezing through 14-12. After that, the difference in fitness was apparent and Mark came through in 4.

Our next home game is Wednesday 29th January 7.30pm v Queens Halifax.
