THE MANOR MAKE A ‘FINAL’ APPEARANCE!!
The Manor Squash Team made a dramatic entrance into the County Cup Final by beating last year’s County Cup winners Brampton Manor in the Semi-Finals in fine style with an excellent 4-1 win. The Manor were the huge underdogs going into the semi-final but great performances by James Healey, Craig Walsh, Jason Walsh & Pete Goodings sealed a superb victory, with Neil Rossin the only casualty – he just didn’t really get going on the night. These performances saw them through to the finals against Duffield.
In the finals it was a complete reversal of fortunes with Neil Rossin stepping up to the plate and James, Craig, Jason & Pete all falling short of their earlier performances in the week. Indeed Pete had 4 match balls and just couldn’t close the match out (hitting many unforced errors on the way), Craig & James were both really out of sorts and couldn’t settle into a rhythm and Jason narrowly missed out on going to 5 games, albeit playing with a broken racket for the whole match!
All-in-all it was a great run through to the final and the evening was a highly entertaining and enjoyable match and a fitting way to end the season.
Roll on next year when everyone has vowed to get in training and take some well deserved revenge!!
