2018 - 2019 Season
END OF SEASON REPORT (APRIL 2019)
North East Wales League
Our First Team consolidated their position in Division 1 finishing in a comfortable mid table position. The introduction of youngsters Will Silvester & Josh Davies has been a great success, helping them gain valuable experience against older, awkward opponents !
The Second Team, under the astute captaincy of Paul Murphy, played very consistent squash, finishing 3rd in the Division 2. With players like Lewis Jones and Ashlie Piele improving rapidly, this team will certainly be challenging for promotion to the Division 1.
The Third Team had a new Captain in Tom Trueman (from Marc Williams, due to work commitments) had gained promotion to the Division 2. Well done guys. It's a tough season ahead next year.
Our junior team (Fourths) well marshalled by Lindsey Silvester played very well this season with all the young players improving throughout - Jamie, Cameron, Max, David & Lewis should all be very pleased with the way they played and conducted themselves on and off the court.
North West Counties League
The First Team finished 3rd in a highly competitive Division 2. Captain, Darren Lee managed to keep a settled side together and always managed to find a quality replacement in the event of player unavailability.
For the Second Team, however, it was a different story. With a definite lack of commitment, some injuries and general apathy, the Team stuggled and, unfortunately, we finished in the relegation zone.
On a positive note youngsters Layna Beattie & Josh Davies came in and played very well in this side. A good sign for the future.
Our Third Team finished 3rd in Division 3. This was a great team effort considering how many times players were taken out of this side to play up and help out the Second Team. On a sad note we lost the services of Geraint Jones due to a long term injury. Our Juniors, Will Silvester & Josh Davies again stepped up and played a big part in the success of this side.
Overall, for a small Club we have punched above our weight once again but, before next season, we will need to have some serious discussions about the sustainability of our Teams and try to ensure we have the players who are committed to playing the whole season for the Club.
North East Wales Plate retained
Congratulations to our North Wales First Team, captained by Richard Ackerley, on retaining the Plate Trophy (for the Third Year).
They beat a strong Holywell Seconds by 4-1, despite a handicap difference of 9 points - well done.
First Team retain the Plate Trophy
North Wales Ladies Team
Congratulations to our North Wales Ladies, captained by Hannah Davies, who won through innto the next round of the England Squash Inter Counties at Sheffield in January 2019.
They had a strong 5-0 win over Merseyside as well as a 3-2 win over Nottinghamshire.
UPDATE: Our Ladies Team played in the England Squash Inter Counties Finals at Nottingham on 6 April and narrowly missed promotion to the Premier Division.
They beat Cambridgeshire but lost to Warwickshire.
It was a great achievement to make it to the Finals and here's to next year !

MID SEASON REPORT (DECEMBER 2018)
North East Wales League
First Team - finished a comfortable second place in Division One with young Will Silvester (age 14) being introduced to the Team and performing very well. Playing at a higher level has certainly improved his game.
Second Team - they finished third in Division 2. They had chances to gain promotion but a shortage of players in important matches cost them. New Captain, Paul Murphy is doing an excellent job.
Third Team - they were relegated from Division 2 by the narrowest margin; very unlucky and didn't deserve to go down but again, in one or two crucial matches player availability was an issue. We hope they will bounce straight back up.
Fourth Team - Lindsey Silvester took on the Captaincy for this Team that mainly comprises junior players, this to give them the experience of competitive league squash. Juniors involved so far this season were - Jamie Silivester, David Thomas, Max Kaye and Cameron Dennis. All of them performed really well and are ready for a successful second half!
Matches restarted on 15th January 2019.
North West Counties League
First Team - they're placed comfortably in the top four, with consistency of players being the key to their success.
Second Team - Unlike our First Team, injuries and non-availability of key players have cost the them dearly. Presently, they are third from bottom of Division 2 and in a relegation fight which is going to be very tough to get out of unless those key players step up.
Third Team - they lie second in the Division 3 with two of our juniors, Josh Davies and Will Silvester playing an admirable part in the Team. Particularly so as injuries to key older, more experienced players could have proved disastrous to the Team had these juniors not stepped in.
Without any doubt, playing Teams Squash and in this League has considerably improved their squash - next season there's every likelihood that these two will be playing in a higher league.
Matches restarted on 3rd January 2019.
North Wales Leagues
This season we had two teams contesting the Gerald Shone Challenge Cup (this is a match between the previous season's League and North Wales Cup winning teams).
In a delayed match, this was held at the Club on 11 December between our First and Second Teams, with the First Team coming through to win it 3-2.

Congratulations to Will Silvester who, on his 14th Birthday, won his debut match in the North West Counties League.
Playing for our Third Team v. Neston 2, Will beat his opponent 3-0.
Winning ways for Will
We've been fortunate to have fielded a consistent First Team so far at the Club this season; they're mid table in Division 2 and proud to wear their new Mantis tops !
2018-19 First Team
The new season kicked off on Thursday, 20 September with the First Team at home to Chester Rugby [won 3-2] and the Seconds away at Liverpool Cricket [lost 5-0].
