Junior Squash

The Stratford Junior Squash Team travelled to Kenilworth for a friendly, but competitive match on Saturday 13th June.

The pouring rain outside didn't put a damper on what was for many their first squash match scored by a Marker. Plenty of support and encouragement on the balcony gave the occasion a great atmosphere.

Stratford was represented by George, Dan, Dom, Harvey, Lewis, Fin and Josh who each played 2 matches.

Coach Guy Pearson ensured everyone had a close game and the result could have gone either way, Stratford played some good squash to win 8-6.

TEAM REPORT–End of Season 2015

1st Team Warwickshire Div.2

The first team finished 5thin the league having won 10 and lost 10

Unfortunately the team suffered from 4 straight losses at the beginning of the year going down to West Warwickshire, Four Oaks, Cleaver and Egbaston Priory but this was mainly due to Freddie Mills, Rolf Wilson, Glen Danks and Patrick Dudman all playing out of their usual positions.

With a full strength squad wins came at both Leamington and Barnt Green (5-0) before playing division winners Solihull Arden and being soundly beaten. Another loss against Virgin Active before finishing of the season with a win against Birmingham University.

The notable player this year was Richard Rosenthall who played in all of the matches and only lost 4 games, 3 of which were against ex professional world ranked players.

Alex Byrd also had a good season playing at number 2 winning 10 out of his 12 matches.

2 nd Team Worcester Div 1

Our second team finished 8th out of 9 which sees them relegated to league 2 for next season.

The team suffered from not having regular players capable of competing at number 1 and 2.

This meant that regulars, Glen Danks, Maron Wyatt, Jon Juxon, George Owen and Patrick Dudman were often playing out of position against more experienced players.

Some excellent exhibition squash was on show however when our own Guy Pearson cleaned up the best that the league could produce winning all of his 6 matches without losing a game.

Clearly what this season did show is the strength in depth we have as a club and we should stand a good chance of winning league 2 this year.

3 rd Team Warwickshire Div.5

Stratford’s 3 rd team finished 4 th in this league just 4 points off of being promoted.

The second halve of the season saw teams fielding much stronger squads borrowing players from higher division teams.

This meant that we had some tough games and the team lost 5 out of the 8 games in 2015.

Overall it was 8 wins and 8 losses but it was great to have such a good squad where everyone played a good number of matches.

At number 1 Patrick Dudman’s played some excellent squash whilst juniors George Owen, playing mostly at number 2, only lost 1 game out of 9 and Alex Kempton won 10 out of his 12 games.

Jon Brazenell, Steve and Jill Chilvers all played great squash at times and will be prominent again next season.

TEAM FRIENDLIES

We are arranging some friendly team games verses Warwick, Kenilworth and Leamington.

This is mainly for those that have not played team squash before to gain experience as well as enjoy the social side.

If you are interested in participating please send an email to robdickenson@me.com
