Melbourn Squash Club’s first team put a poor recent run behind them by comprehensively beating Stamford 20-3 in Cambs League Division One.

The first two matches were tight as Aidan Hird battled to a 3-2 win in a see-saw match and Mark Oppen recovered from losing his opening game to win 3-1. From that point on it was one-way traffic as Dan Easton, Joe Weavers and Matt Sampson all won 3-0.

Kate Bradshaw had a busy Monday as she featured, and won, for both the ladies’ first team and the mixed 2nds.

First, she travelled to Huntingdon to record a 3-2 win in the ladies’ top string match, then, having rushed back to Melbourn, she took on Crown Lodge 2nds strongest player and beat him 3-1.

Bradshaw’s female team-mates followed up the advantage she had given them to record a 16-9 victory over Hunts County 2nds, only the second defeat Hunts have suffered this season.

Melbourn 2nds rounded off a good week for the club as they won 18-7.

Ian Blows, Matt Walker, Jan Brynjolffsen and the flourishing Bradshaw secured the victory.
