The 2nd’s would like to thank everyone for their support in last nights fixture against Hull. The atmosphere as always was fantastic!
At 5th string, Lauren Siddall marked her 2nd team debut with a relatively comfortable 3-0 win against young Joe Twigge. The first and third games were over quickly, but Lauren had to hold off a spirited effort in the 2nd, eventually taking it 17-15.
Meanwhile on court 4, 6-time club champion Katie Smith played strongly against Glyn Saunders. Glyn has made a name for himself over the years as a player who won’t stop running, and while Katie appeared largely on top, Glyn’s retrieving ultimately proved too much, eventually taking a close 3-1 win.
Next up on court 4 was Matt Godson against Yusef Forster. Forster was the 3-2 victor the last time the pair met in the 2015/16 season, and it was Yusef who again made the stronger start, taking the first 11-6. Matt has redound some form in the last few weeks and soon turned the 1-0 deficit around; making light work of the second game and finishing strongly to take a 3-1 win.
At 2nd string, Elliot Ridge fought off the talented and ever improving Ben Smith, the pair met in the first half with Ridge sneaking a 3-2 victory. This time however, Ridge, playing some excellent squash in the last few weeks, took a steady 3-0.
With the match already won, club champion Adam Taylor took to the court against Hull’s number 1 Harry Falconer. The pair have had some close battles over the last few years, each player having won their fair share. It was Falconer’s turn this time round; taking a close 3-1.
It’s been a tough second half of the season for the Pontefract outfit in the absence of injured BJO Champion Sam Todd, but the team were delighted to take a much needed 16-7 victory.
