Wednesday 17th October 2012 v Leamington

C&NW ladies 1st team celebrated a resounding win over long standing local rivals Leamington by 4 matches to 1.

Di Murphy was first up as anchor and set the tone by notching up a 3 - 0 victory over newcomer Vic Leggatt, who struggled to deal with the consistency of Di's length game. Julie Hicks completely out hit her opponent Maxine Holt dropping just 7 points in 3 games. Third up was Captain Liz Young against Ali Bate which proved a more fiercely contested encounter with some impressive long rallies but Young managed to secure the crucial points and her power cross court drives gave her the winning edge claiming the match 3 - 1. Becs Moss, 2nd string, made quick work of her match against Becky Lascelles, again with some powerful hitting. Lascelles struggled from the outset with Moss always in the driving seat securing the win 3 - 0. So with a team win in the bag new number 1 Georgia Jennings faced up to the experienced Jemma Holt. The match delivered high quality squash but Jemma was always in charge, proving too consistent and came away with a 3 - 0 result. The game scores didn't really do justice to Jenning's strong performance in her debut match at number 1 which bodes well for future matches.

The team has lost their number 1 player two seasons in succession. Cath Brown gave birth to twin boys 4 months ago so Kate Dawe stepped up to the plate last season and now Kate has just announced she's expecting her second child so Georgia moves into the number 1 slot. However we are welcoming some new players into the team this season - Linda Kooner, Emma Bennett and experienced veteran Janet Critchley - who will play a valuable role as anchor players and will hopefully provide the depth and strength required to do well in 1st Division. As always the team spirit is excellent both on and off the court.
