19 12 2008

In the John Henderson and Sons Squash League Division 1, Peter’s Fish and Chicken Bar played hosts to Finite Engineering at Nunholm.

It was yet another closely fought contest with Peter’s Fish and Chicken Bar having the edge and securing a hard fought 3-2 (14-7) victory.

At number one, Jim Wells and Garry McKean entertained the balcony with some long and excellent rallies, Jim took the first two games, but Garry was hot on his heels and clinched the third, Wellsy then regained control and cruised home 9-3 in the fourth to win 3-1.

At number two, Jim Scriven was on fire against Jock Glendinning, his pace, skill and power proved too much for Jock as he ran off with a comfortable 3-0 victory.

At number three, Keith Gristwood battled hard against Graeme Fraser, however Graeme had the upper hand in each game and Keith eventually succumbed to a 0-3 defeat.

At number four, Sue Strachan was in total control against the young and upcoming Chris McCutcheon. It was a highly entertaining fast paced match with Sue once again exerting “Girl Power” and securing a 3-0 victory.

At number five, Allan Miller and Lindsey Johnstone entertained the balcony with a thrilling five-set match. However Lindsey’s fitness proved too much for Allan in the fifth and he conceded a narrow 2-3 defeat.
