The 1st team were at home to Southport and Birkdale 1 on Tuesday night. Nat Fairhurst won comfortably agains Andrew Grove in the first match, but somehow Charlie Major managed to lose 2-3 to Howard Nuttall having been 2-1 up and having match point. Order was restored by Rob Taylor winning easily against Arron Ken. Next up was Adam Taylor who, after a few early mistakes, then started to show the shots he is capable of and dispatched Matt Sherman 3-0. Match won, Andy Whipp, still suffering from sciatica, came up against Emyr Evans who was in no mood for sympathy winning 3-0. The team lies second in the table, one point behind Wigan Squash 1 who is the only other team to have won both matches to date.
The 2nd team were at home to Alderley Edge 1. Alas, home advantage was not much help with the team losing 1-4. Sean Hunter had a good 3-1 win against Oliver Harris but he was the only one. Elsewhere, the 3rd team lost narrowly to Congleton 1 but the 4th team were more comprehensibly beaten by Xaverian 1. There were wins for the 5th, 7th and 8th teams but the 6th team lost to Woolston 2.
