Boys U13 Second Half Report

February 17, 2010 No Comments »

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!!
