Chew Squash Gifted their First Win

The final Summer Season matches saw Chew Valley Squash Club facing Westbury David Lloyd and Redland "D". Despite playing some great squash CVSC were still winless so could the team break that duck before the end of this season?


The first match was away v Westbury David Lloyd who were vying with Lansdown for the top slot - this would be a challenge for Chew Squash!

No 1 = MARK SIMMONS. Lost 0-3. Game scores = 13-15, 13-15 and 10-15
Mark always seemed to be in with a chance in this game but he was just unable to convert all the hard work into crucial points against his higher ranked opponent.

No 2 = RICHARD NICHOL. Lost 1-3. Game scores = 10-15, 13-15, 15-8 and 11-15
Pretty close first couple of games for the second week in a row for Rich. And again for the second week in a row, CVSC's hopes were up when Rich cruised to a win in the 3rd - had his opponent burned out? However, his opponent bounced back to win the fourth to take another win for Westbury.

No 3 = JAMIE WATSON. Lost 0-3. Game scores = 14-16, 8-15 and 3-15
An amazing start to this match; a major tussle that went right to the wire. After that who knows what happened; did Jamie's opponent work out a new strategy or did Jamie just run out of steam after such a torrid first game? A fairly straightforward win for Westbury in the end though.


No 4 = RICARDO PAREDES. Lost 2-3. Game scores = 6-15, 15-9, 15-13, 8-15 and 8-15
A strange first couple of games. Ricky was made to look "ordinary" in the first game as he struggled to get going. This seemed to rile Ricky who bounced back and made a great effort in the 2nd game. He turned the tables on his opponent, making him look "ordinary" in this game. Ricky was fired up and took this into the 3rd game in which he played some great squash to go 2-1 up in the tie. However, he was unable to maintain his edge and lost the next two games and the match. Good effort though from Ricky.


Match Result: Another 0-4 defeat for CVSC and only 3 points to add to the team tally.


Man of the Match: RICARDO PAREDES; so close to the win.


Chew Valley's final match was at home v Redland "D" who were comfortably mid-table and really had nothing to play for so would this be a factor in this match? Chew Squash were playing for pride and wanting that first win v Redland with nothing to lose! The question was, in the end, academic. Redland were unable to field a team because of injury and holidays and so forfeited the match to CVSC


Match Result: A 4-0 win for Chew Squash with 14 points on the board from this match from their first "win" of the season - but not the way that they'd really want to get a win and not enough to stave off relegation.


On to the Autumn season from October. How will CVSC do next season?
