Tue: Lions end WarKen winning run
as St George’s topple Trads …

The second half of the Premier Squash League season started with the reverse fixtures from October’s Round One.

In the Northern division unbeaten leaders Warwick University / Kenilworth Squash travelled to University of Birmingham Lions, and the home side quickly established a two-nil lead courtesy of Millie Tomlinson and Stewart Macgregor. Daniel Mekbib pulled one back for the visitors but it was only a stay of execution as Jaymie Hayckock and Joel Makin wrapped up the win to put the Lions into second place behind still-leaders WarKen.

Northumberland Club / Newcastle University got off to a good start at University of Nottingham (at the Park Club) as Lisa Aitken put the visitors into the lead, but the home side struck back to take the next four matches to complete the double win over Newcastle.

Early leaders Team Pontefract travelled to UWE / Elite Squash Bristol for a match that looked like it could go 5-0 either way. On the day it was Bristol who took all five matches to record their first win of the season and move off the bottom of the table. Pontefract slip a point behind Nottingham into fourth place.

Southern Division leaders Tradition@RAC hosted defending champions Luxfords St George’s Hill, and the visitors stormed into a 3-0 lead courtesy of Mohamed ElShorbagy, Joelle King and Robbie Temple, running out the 4-1 winners to close the gap at the top of the table.

Bottom placed Team Chichester hosted Bexley and took a 2-0 lead via wins from Miles Jenkins and Alison Thomson. Bexley fought back with Benjamin Aubert and Rui Soares putting them level, but Chichester’s Mathieu clinched their first win as he beat Olli Tuominen 2-1 in the decider.

In the Friday match Welsh Wizards won 4-1 at Coolhurst, opening up a gap between the top and bottom three.
