- At 1: Paul (Seconded) Miles, on loan from the B team and faced Liam Corrigan. Paul lost 0-3 to Liam, but gave more than a gutsy performance. Its worth noting that Liam is a friend of Tony Bevans, and as such, belongs to that unique band of players who play for Wales. Liam has a squash Wales score level so high where it beggar’s belief the ‘rules’ allow him to represent a C team player position in the first place! Thanks to Paul for stepping in and helping the C team out, the balcony supporters were watching this game very closely and were impressed with Pauls return shots keeping Liam on his toes.
- At 2: Chris Chappell played John Spence. Chris took John to a dark place in the first game, but narrowly lost 16/17. Chris battled on from herein, and was a gutsy effort, but it wasn’t to be. His opponent was non-stop in attack, with no respite and little or no pauses between each serve and point.
- At 3: Chris Beale played Lucas Hopkins, all 3 games were close, but resulted in a 0-3 loss overall. Very fit and experienced opposition played throughout in this Penarthian side, but a proper determined effort on Chris’s part was demonstrated. Unlucky Chris.
- At 4: Crispin Seabrook played Simon McCarthy (no relation to the Beatle & not even the same spelling). However, it was noted that Crispin smashed his opponent down the long and winding road which resulted in Simon shouting for Help but eventually had to let it be. Against the referee, there was evidence of a bit of a Twist and Shout, but in the end, Simon was looking to finish as soon as possible, seeking out a possible Yellow Submarine to escape in, if needs be. 3-0 to Crispin – have some of it.
- At 5: James Ridd played Mark Williams. Let’s cut to the chase here, James won 3-0 and took Mark back to when he was a little boy, wishing he was tucked up under his ‘Rupert The Bear’ duvet, with a torch, reading his favourite Enid Blyton famous 5 books. Well done James, cracking play.
