Match Report :

Unfortunately, it was an afternoon of mixed emotions for the Squash Club. The first team succumbed to their second loss of the season while the 2nd team destroyed their opponents to continue their emphatic winning run. Among the disappointment of the first team’s result, there were a few individual success stories. Max Fremantle went 2 games down to come back in a tenacious battle to secure his individual win. Similarly, Oscar Wright entered the team covering for his ill older brother. A determined performance from our young 4th former who grasped the opportunity and echoed the fightback of Max to clinch a win. The second team continued their blazing run of form with a classy execution of their Oakham opponents. Dropping 1 game once again, a ruthless demonstration of Oundle’s depth was on clear show. A somewhat mismatched game saw Will Stevenson defeat his opponent without losing a single point in a precise display. I write about Oundle supporting their peers regularly, but it was especially noticeable during the final matches that most Oakham players had left the courts and it was Oundle with a greater number of supporters applauding their teammates on the court. There was an aura of disappointment evident throughout the first 3 seeds of the first team who all had been unable to perform against very strong opponents. Fortunately, there is a lengthy break as the next squash fixture is not till after half term. This gives us time as a squash club to recollect ourselves and push onto the next fixtures leaving the mixed emotions of this afternoon behind us.

Kind Regards,

Jamie Perring
