IT was another busy week for Knutsford Squash Club, with all eight teams in action.

The ladies kicked things off but a player drought, hopefully a temporary one as far as the club chiefs are concerned, meant they were already two games down before they'd started.

Wins for Angela Greenland (#1) and Sara Bayley (#3) weren't enough to overcome Brooklands and they went down 6-15. The ladies are still, however, comfortably second in their league.

The men's first team were up against it, facing the high-flying Bollington who look like they are on course to win Division Two East.

It all went as expected for Bollington until 15-year-old Charles Keeble took to the court and managed an emphatic 3-1 win at 4th string - another excellent victory for one of Cheshire's top junior talents.

His success now means he will jump up the order - a well-deserved achievement.

The team lost 3-18 on the night with all other games going the way of Bollington.

The seconds had a straightforward 19-5 win win at Alsager with Pete Ceuppens (#2), Graham Woods (#3), Ewen Macdonald (#4) and Mark Strefford (#5) securing impressive wins.

Knutsford seconds are very much still in the running for promotion and are currently second in their division.

The thirds had a tough time of it against Alsager firsts, but Neil Howarth took an excellent 3-0 victory at #4, which reduced the points haul of Alsager who are currently third in the division.

The fourths travelled away to Grove Park where they faced their fifths, but despite wins for Andy Ryder (#1) and Will McLeod (#2) the team suffered a narrow loss.

The fifths lost out 6-19 away from home against Moss Side seconds, but Dave Smith took a close 3-2 win at #4 to prevent them having it all their own way.

The sixths welcomed Glossop firsts but couldn't quite win a game, despite Andy Ford coming close at #4.

Finally the sevenths played their equivalent from Grove Park at Knutsford, but lost a close match 4-1, with Andy Ford (#5) taking a win and Reggie Rendall (#3) and Geoff Dalton (#4) both on the wrong side of 2-3 defeats, both of which would have swung the overall result had they been reversed.
