The Yorkshire Ladies Over 50’s team of Kate Fisher and Kim Chadwick (Dunnington) together with Paula Arrowsmith (Chapel Allerton) travelled to the Northern Squash Club in Manchester on the 18th October for their first match in 2015/16.
With only one match to play against Cheshire, number 3 Kim got the team off to a good start with a 3-0 win over Jane Law. Number 1 Kate struggled initially against Hilary Kenyon but at 2-0 down and facing match ball at 8-1 in the 3rd game, she started a tremendous comeback and clawed her way back to win that game 10-8. She then won the following game to level the match at 2-2. The deciding 5th game was close all the way to 6 all but Hilary edged her way ahead to get to match ball again at 8-6. However, another great fight back by Kate saw her take the game 10-8 and the match 3-2. The final match between number 2 Paula and Polly Woodward was another close affair. Paula went into a good 2-0 lead but the third game saw Polly dig in and win a close contest 9-7. Polly went on to win the next game which meant another 5th game decider. Fortunately, Paula managed to halt Polly’s comeback to win 3-2 and complete a 3-0 overall win for Yorkshire.
