The Norfolk Team of Brady Mackenzie (EATSC) George Pinkstone (Fakenham) and Gabriel Escalera (EATSC) travelled to The National Squash Centre in Manchester to compete in the under 11s inter county. This was the first time the boys had pulled on the County Colours and they were very excited. First up was Warwickshire who proved too strong despite the boys giving them a run for their money. Brady at Number 1 String was able to pick up a valuable point losing out 11-8 in a close final game 6-1 To Warwickshire
Norfolk’s U19 Boys made the short trip to Moreton Hall, Bury St. Edmunds for this years Stage 1 inter counties fixture, and enjoyed some competitive squash against Suffolk, Cambs and Essex.
In the morning match against Cambs, Olly Gollops lack of recent match practice was evident as he quickly went down 3-0, whilst Phil Davis at no. 5 was able to pick up the first game before his opponent just got the better of him, to record a 3-1 defeat. Olly Farmer also managed to pick up a game in his 3-1 defeat, whilst William Henden, often slow to start, put in a disappointing performance in losing 3-0 to Scott Drewery. By far the best Norfolk performance of the first match was put in by Robert Thirst who fought hard throughout to record a 3-1 win against Ed Wheeler, a player he had lost to earlier in the year in the Broadland Junior Open.
