Match Report
Truro School Squash Team vs  Charterhouse, Felsted and Haberdashers School’s
On: Wednesday, 06 Feb 2019
Venue: Away

On Feb 6th our young KS 3 Squash stars literally reduced their

opponents from Charterhouse, Felsted and Haberdashers to tears

as they swept to victory with maximum points in the final group

phase of the competition.

The host school, Charterhouse, set up the 4 way match complete with

considerable local support, spanking new team kit and top end facilities

only to meet a Truro team in superb form, who were simply in no mood

to be denied a place in the Grand Finals this March at Nottingham.

The team of Jack Mahon, Louis Murray, Joe Thomson, Ollie Beaumont

Callum Oliver and Ed Hayes won every single match to secure a huge

clean-sweep over our illustrious rivals from these fine private schools.

Jack and Louis are both ranked in the top 10 in the country as juniors,

Joe is U 14 County champ, Ed is U 13 county champ and Ollie and

Callum are both at county level and on the highest of improvement

curves.

The final scores warrant special highlighting as follows:

Match 1 Felsted school 0 pts Truro school 15 pts.

Match 2 Haberdashers 0 pts Truro school 15pts

Match 3 Charterhouse 1 pt Truro school 15pts.

Several of the boys will now be in action again on Feb 11th,

coincidentally at the same venue, against Charterhouse, a strong

Wilsons and the no 2 ranked sports school in the country, Whitgift.

This promises to be a tight and enthralling match which I suspect

will be very closely fought right to the end. If we play at our

absolute best, we can do it!

Our method of travelling the night before, warming up at Winchester

Squash club in the morning and playing all afternoon will be our

formula for success again as we seek to achieve a superb double-

qualification (with KS 4) for the right to play for the National title

outright next month.
