Boys U13 Second Half Report

The U13 Northumbria County boy’s team travelled down to Prestwick Squash Club in Manchester on 31st January 2010 to play in the second stage of the Inter-countyChampionship.

The team consisted of Chris Wiggins, Adam Bainbridge, Greg Bojke, Jamie Todd, Dan North and Sam Broughton who were alternating as our number 5 player. Our number 1 player, Alex Robertson was not available to play so the team were apprehensive but remained positive throughout the day.

The 3 opponents for the day were Lancashire, Cheshire and Yorkshire. All of these Counties had very strong teams with a number of players in the top 50 ranked in the England, including the number 1 at Under 13 in the Yorkshire team. Despite this the Northumbria team were not overwhelmed and put up a good fight losing matches to Lancashire and Yorkshire a very close 3-2 and to Cheshire 4-1.

Whilst finishing 4th in the group it was so close that a few more points in some of the games would have made all of the difference. Well done U13’s!!
