Warwick Boats claim local bragging rights

Leamington Editorial 18th Feb, 2015 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

THE WINNING streak continues for Warwick Boat’s squash club after the first team came away with convincing wins against local rivals Kenilworth.

David Wall kicked of the matches with a battling performance at number five and he pushed his opponent hard in the first game but just came up short 18-20 and eventually lost 3-0.

Next up was Gary Murphy and despite a slow start he managed to pick up his game to come home with a 3-1 win. Jamie Goodheart followed with a straightforward 3-1 victory and the penultimate match saw Rob Mahon, returning from injury, come from behind to snatch a valuable 3-1 win against an experienced opponent.

Last up was club number one Richard Whitwell, who recently took the County over 45 title. Whitwell took a commanding 2-0 lead and then worked hard to take the final game and the match 3-0.

Club coach Jonathan Peak commented: “Warwick Boat Club are happy to be challenging strongly for promotion and I am pleased to see the hard work in training of the whole squad is clearly paying off.”
