KNUTSFORD Squash Club’s women got the new week off to the best possible start with an emphatic 19-4 win at Liverpool Cricket Club.

A full complement of wins were recorded by Angela Greenland (#1), Jessie Clutterbrook (#2), Amanda Richardson (#3), Sara Bayley (#4) and Rebecca Dearman (#5) to cement second place 29 points clear of Prestbury.

The first team took on Northern thirds at home and despite a fantastic 3-2 victory for rising star Charles Keeble, now playing at #2, the rest of the team couldn’t quite manage to emulate his success and slumped to a 19-7 loss.

Paul Norman ran Garth Van Der Wath close at #1 but couldn’t quite get over the line and lost 3-2 after a long match.

The second team didn’t have much luck against Northern fifths, despite a very strong showing from Ewen Macdonald, winning in three at #3.
