Seven Guys in Seven Sisters

The best turn out ever gathered at the Sobell Centre just off the Seven Sisters Road to challenge for the Club Squash title on Friday night.

Holder & favourite, Steve Emmins was surprisingly beaten in the opening match against Peter Hollman, but that was his last loss in the round robin as both he & Peter were joined in the semis by 2 representatives of the youth challenge - Matt Callender & Rob Bastin.

After 2 exhausting & draining semi finals which both lasted 30 minutes, it was experience that prevailed as opposed to the near kinetic energy of the twentysomethings. After his semi, Steve said " I had to dig as deep as I have ever had to do " having turned around a 7-9 1st game scoreline against Rob Bastin into a 2-1 win. "But it's getting closer every year & this could be the last time " added the 2003, 2004 & 2005 winner.

The other semi reflected that of Steve & Rob's as Matt went down 0-2 to Pete but the games were 8-10. 9-11 which tells the story. 2 games in 30 minutes. Exhausting!
