SSRC winners at the RASTA Racketball tournament this Weekend

Chanel VAS Tournament £100K – at St.George’s Hill 16th-22nd Oct.

Draws for Kelvin Financial Planning’s RASTA Racketball Tournament at S.S.R.C. in Glasgow on Saturday (14th Oct.)

Optical Express D.L.W.E. v Whitecraigs Rugby Club (away) 12th Oct. 2017

63298245-EC5C-4BC8-93C6-297AEB93FBB3I travelled the mile-and-a-half to Whitecraigs Rugby Club to play the early match against Garry McKay (you know Garry, from Inverness). And with an 6.30pm start and a veggie meal already secured, it was going to be a good night!

Now, I remember Garry playing for Broomhill about 10 years ago and he was pretty good then and guess what he’s pretty good now as well. Well, far to good for me at any rate and handed me a choppin’ at No.2. Didn’t even give me a run!

The normal weekly scenario happened next, when none of the available players match up, so we have to play ‘squash puggy’ and wait for a couple of Bells. End ing this game was Andrew Glen and he was on next at No.5 against Allan McKay (you know Allan who hails from Inverness!). Andrew is on a roll at the moment, with 2 West League wins out of 2. Tonight, he once again played a really solid game and even in the tight moments managed to hold his nerve (helped somewhat by a few mistakes by Allan it has to be said). Three more points to the total and Andrew’s 100% record is still intact.

Next on at No.3 was Finlay McGhee for DLWE against Dougie Emery. D0A16568-3C5F-4B8D-92B7-C4103E43D900This was always going to be a tough one with Dougie on his home ‘Banbury-style’ courts (no not the Inverness courts). Could Fin get on the volley quickly enough? The result was 3-0 to Dougie, so the answer was ‘no, he couldn’t’ – however as I say, it was a big ask, against a very good opponent and on the different style courts.

Next on were the No.1 with Craig Valente-Wallace for us, against Andy MacBean (fae Inverness!). This was the match of the night with Andy going 2-0 up and Craig, going from defence to attack, evening things up at 2-2. And so to the 5th! Both men were pretty tired now, but Craig got what looked like a winning lead, with a brilliant backhand volley at 8-6; he was going to be difficult to catch from there. At match ball Andy was given a ‘let’ and then he magnanimously refused to take it on reflection.  So another M.O.T.M. performance from Craig this week – it’s great watching him play like that.

So 2-2 in the match (just like a Wednesday West League should be) and last up were the No.4s with Paul Treon for DLWE and Scott Hay for the Rugby club. This was a good match especially early on when Paul was fresh! Paul was hitting some tremendous winning shots, followed by the odd tin (or 3), followed by another cracker of a shot. On the other hand Scott was getting everything back and really piling on the pressure. The 1st game was very close and the 2nd game was close-ish, but as the match proceeded Paul made more mistakes and Scott looked like he had plenty left in the tank. So a 3-0 win to a very fit looking Scott (who has been to Inverness on his holidays).

Close, but no cigar! A 3-2 loss and just the 6 points in the bag. Still a pint and a veggie curry later and it didn’t seem as bad. There was a sighting of Ewan ‘Nessie’ Hearns at the club as he joined the team meal and he’ll strengthen the WRC line up when he returns.

A week off next week and then onward to Christmas! (10 weeks to go! I know!)
