Hutton Moor up to second after winning start
Hutton Moor Squash Club are in second position in the league after a good start to the season.
HUTTON Moor Squash Club started the new season with new shirts with the help of new sponsors.
The team would like to thank Ian from Spot on Mortgages, Peter from Worle Fish Bar, Pizza and Kebab House, Wes from the Sandwich Maker, Jim from Mactra Marine Equipment and Neil from Neils Joinery.
The first two games were played away with some new team members joining the squad. On the first outing to play Gordano in Portishead, the team welcomed Jason Vinnicombe, where his skill had him playing at the top as No 1.
Darren Cole opened the match playing Gordano’s Bryan Pycroft and despite his best efforts, Darren was not able to overcome the higher ranked player and lost his match 3-0.
