November 17, 2010 Leave a comment

Round 2 of the 2010 Premier Squash League (PSL) last night saw a shock 4-1 defeat for current champions ‘Surrey Health & Rackets’ at the hands of ‘Exeter Diamonds’.

Alan Clyne was playing for the Surrey side and lost a tight 4 set match to Jonathan Hartford 11-5 10-12 11-3 12-10

But neither side were able to top the B group (south) as ‘TWP St Georges Hill’ (led by PSA No.13 Daryl Selby and WISPA No.9 Laura Massaro) beat ‘UWE Bristol’ to clinch No.1 spot in the table by just 1 point to Exeter.

In group ‘A’ (north-ish) Esporta Oxford, led by Chris Ryder PSA No.36 and Madeline Perry WISPA No. 6,  top the group as they won 5-0 against Nottingham. However ‘Chappel Allerton’ went straight into 2nd= place (led by Alistair Walker PSA No.20 and Jenny Duncalf WISPA No.2) as they started their campaign off with a 5-0 win against Pontefract (who have Simon Parke, Lee Beachill and Vanessa Atkinson).

What a league that is! To see all Round 2 results chick here.
