Steve Coppard reports:

The first team played their penultimate game in the Derbyshire division 2 and welcomed the league leaders Queens Park to Lichfield.

Jon went on first at 4 and lost the first by a large margin. The next four games were closely fought with good squash being played by both players. After about an hours play. Jon went down 9-7 in the fifth.

Stu went on the other court and blasted his way to a quick two game advantage, took his foot off the gas to concede the third before winning in the 4th.

Richard and Ben went on next and both won comfortably in three games only conceding 9 points each.

Sam went on last against the Derbyshire over 45 champion and eased to a win in straight games always having the upper hand.

So 19 points in the bag and with one game to play are virtually assured of a top two finish and need a few points in the last game to clinch the title. Last game away at the bottom of the league team so no slip ups!!
