DLWE v Newlands 1– Home (Match Report) 10th December 2014

westsquashsitelogo1Newlands 1 – and the hits just keep on coming. Oh well I’m sure they wouldn’t have their full team out against us! Wrong! Greg Lobban, the PSA World No.63 at No.1 –  Peter O’Harrow (!) at No.2 (2013 Over 40s British Open Champ) – Matt Bedwell at 3 (U19 No.15 in England) – Angus Woodward at 4 (not lost this year!) and up from Carlisle Vicky Bell at No.5

So, a short night then!

At first, no one was very sure who was playing No.1 for Newlands and when Alan Pearson turned up (their Team manager – and Newlands guru!) he said ‘I thought your No.1 would have told you’. Interesting! It’s up to the opposition to tell us what the Newlands line up is! I’m sure that’s not how Chelsea do it!

Mind you it wasn’t all bad news, as the new team shirts arrived this week and thanks to Kelvin Financial Planning (our new Sponsor) we looked very professional in the new team strip (as did the 3rd & 4th team who were playing each other – pictured) IMG_0256

Having said all that we secured the team point on the very first game of the night, as David Craig actually warmed up for once and stormed the 1st game 12-10! But maybe we should have quit while we were up!

Angus started hitting a great length and won 3-1. Great team point though (must have been the return of the team mascot!).

Next on was Michael Jackson against Vicky Bell – thumped 3-0. Don’t worry MJ “You are not alone” this week!

After that was me – thumped 3-0 (at 2 v Pistol Pete)

Then Craig VW – thumped 3-0 (at 1 v Greg L – who is currently ranked as the 2nd best player representing Scotland) – didn’t see it as I was marking at the time.

Last on Doug (Macmillan) at No.3 – well Doug was great again this week with a magnificent 1st game winning 11-8 against Matt. However Matt hit a better length in the rest of the match and also ran around like Mo Farah. No Really! I was sweating more from marking than Matt was from doing court sprints v Doug.

I thought Doug played well in every game, but it was almost impossible to play a winner against Matt. So Doug eventually ran out of steam and lost 1-3.

Still 2 points for the team, which when I saw their line up, was 2 more points than I thought we’d get!

Soft drinks only with dinner (bar humbug!)

Still it’s the Team Christmas Night out on Saturday so hopefully will do a bit more damage to the bar that day!
