Slough - June 2011
On Sunday 12th June 2011 Oxfordshire took a team of 10 squash players to Slough to play in an u11 and u13 3-counties tournament. The u11s retained the title they had won last year in style, winning 9 out of 10 games and finishing on 46 points, with runners-up Middlesex on 23 and Berkshire on 8.
The first match saw Oxon play Berkshire. With Marcus T and Ben P splitting U11/U13 duties between them, Ben took the lead winning his top string match 3-0. Eve C followed suit with a 3-0 win at number 2, followed also by 3-0 wins for Fyn O, Nikhil V and Sian M, all from Abingdon, at numbers 3,4 and 5 respectively, giving a maximum 25-0 win overall.
The second fixture saw Oxon play Middlesex. This time it was Marcus T's turn to win his top string match 3-0 with Eve again winning 3-0 at number 2. Fyn battled hard to win 3-1, Nikhil lost 3-0 and Sian won 3-0 giving an overall win of 21-5.
We also took 5 U9s to play friendly fixtures against Berkshire's U9s. The players consisted of Teo L from Abingdon, Jamie S from Carterton, Johnnie W from Chipping Norton, Tom Q from Gillotts and Jasmine T from Esporta. All the players had at least 3 games and really enjoyed themselves, making new friends, having fun and of course getting their county t-shirts and goody bags!
