DLWE v Giffnock 2 – Home (Match Report) 14th January 2015

westsquashsitelogo14 out of the 5 matches went to 3-2! And the Match was also 3-2 as Giffnock 2 came visiting with the young guns last Wednesday. It was a cracker!

First on was David ‘and so to the 5th’ Craig. And so to the 5th! Mark Coyle (the youngster) got a good lead in the 5th and Dave just couldn’t get his nose back in front. Great game though. (Loss 3-2. One-zero in the match)

Next on was Doug (Macmillan) v Mikey Rodgerson. And so to the 5th  – Doug (the youngster) is fast becoming king of the 5 setters and he wrestled another win this week with some determined squash. (Win 3-2. One-all in the match)

I went on next against Patrick O’Sullivan – and so to the 5th. It was close at 8-9 but Patrick (the youngster) did just enough to hold on. I can’t say I was in the best of spirits after that one, but I got a good joke e-mailed to me just at that time which cheered me up a little bit! (Loss 3-2. Two-1 down in the match)

“A husband and wife came for counselling after 25 years of marriage. When asked what the problem was, the wife went into an angry tirade listing each and every problem they had ever had in the 25 years they had been married.

She went on and on: neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling unloved and unloveable, a long list of unmet needs she had endured over the course of their quarter century of marriage.

Finally, after allowing this to go on for a sufficient length of time, the therapist stood up, walked around his desk and, asking the wife to stand, embraced her and kissed her passionately on the mouth.

The woman shut up and, in a daze, quietly sat down;. The therapist turned to the husband and said, “This is what your wife needs at least seven times a week. Do you think you can do this?”

The husband thought for a moment and replied, “Well, Doc, I can drop her off here on Tuesday and Friday, but on the other days I play squash.”

Next on (and back from injury) was Colin (Clark) against Jonathan Brady. And so to the 4th! Jonathan (the youngster) played lots of great squash, but also lots of mistakes and Colin was able to hold on long enough for the mistakes to take over. (Win 3-1. Two-all in the match)

Last up was Craig (Valente Wallace) against Stuart Pitt. And so to the 5th! A real tussle and the match went to 10-10. Craig and Stu (both youngster) gave it everything on the night, but Stuart just squeezed home. (Loss 3-2. Two-three down in the match!)

We got 12 points though. In fact the score of the games on the night was 12-12, but Giffnock got the bonus points to take home.

Tough to take!
