Weston Squash and Racketball D team gave a fighting display at Chew Valley.

DESPITE playing against much higher ranked opposition, Weston Squash and Racketball D team competed well at Chew Valley B.

The evening did not start well as No 1 Richard Middleton retired with a torn hamstring. He narrowly lost the first game and was well placed in the second.

Harvey Lane was unlucky to lose his match with two games going the full distance and Rod Barnes after a slow start, pushed his opponent all the way and gained a valuable point.

Young Weston College student Joe Radcliffe got off to a flying start winning the first two games. However, complacency crept in and against an experienced opponent, this was fatal and he lost in the fifth.

The match of the night was between Graham Quick and his much higher ranked opponent. Losing the first he narrowly won the next two games and had match point in the fourth which he failed to take.

However, despite being 1-6 down in the last, he found a reserve of energy to win a nail biting last game. He saved two match points and won 10-9 in the fifth.
