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.
