National Team Competition - Third Again
It was once again a case of what might have been for LDSC as they competed in the National Squash Clubs Championships at the weekend of the 31st May in Nottingham. The team lost out in dramatic style to eventual winners Colets in the semi-finals, before thrashing Pontefract in the 3rd/4th place play-off. For the full report click here
The annual Club Championship was held on the 13th and 20th May. The event was split into A and B Grades and various formats were used to ensure that everyone had more than one game. The A Grade event was won by Club Captain Steve Davies despite the best efforts of Craig, Scot, Matt and Carl. There were even a few beads of perspiration on Steve's forehead! The B grade was won by newcomer Stephen Axford despite the efforts of old stager Paul and young gun Sean.
