LDSC vs Bunyan Bulls 2

13/2/24 – The team were looking to do the double having enjoyed a narrow 3-2 win away against Bunyan Bull2 in November.
The match started negatively with Stephen and Thomas at 4 and 5 respectively; they fought hard but went down 3:0 and 3:1.
Next up at 2 was Glen who showed to much variety of shot and had too much experience in winning 3:0. Shortly after that Sean showed all of his shots in taking a 3:1 win playing at number 1.
That left the match at 2:2 and after a tough match playing in 3 Evan took an excellent win 3:1. Once his new shoes bed in, there’ll be no stopping him!
The final result was a 15:8 win for the team Another excellent win!

Flitwick 2 vs LDSC

6/2/24 – Prior to the match LDSC were only leading Flitwick by 2 points 

First off, playing in position 5 was Tim who had a game and a half on his hands. He defend two match points against him in the 4th game and a heart rate of over 190 ,this was a real cliff hanger. I am glad to say Tim dominated the fifth set and won 3:2.
Playing as the 4th string Thomas recorded a loss of 0:3 and it was suggested that he is a better Team manager than player 🙂
In 3rd string Stephen recorded a 2:3 loss but he gave it his best to the very end.
This put the pressure on number 1 and 2 to bring the Match home.
In string 2 Evan almost lost the grip , literally speaking as his shoes had very little profile left. But he managed a glorious 3:2 victory. There is now a just giving page to collect funds for new shoes for Evan.
This left Glen at 1 who played a dominating game and won 3:1 which sealed the win over Flitwick 2 with an overall result of 16:11.

This result also means that we are currently leading the table in the prime position.
It will take some focus to ensure we take this home to the end of the season.

Next game will be home against Bulls 2 on the 13th February.

Bunyan Bulls 2 vs LDSC

21/11/23 – After last week’s success at home against Flitwick, we were away against Bunyan Bulls 2, the current League leaders. Congratulations to the team on securing a magnificent 3:2 win.

We had an early lead with a commanding 3-0 win from Glen playing in position 2. This was followed by a brilliant performance from Stephen at 3 securing a 3:2 win so momentum was on our side.
Next up at 4 was Tim who had an epic game which challenged his opponent to the full. Tim is the most improved player in the team and he only missed out on converting a match ball and lost a very close match 2:3. Player of the match was David Copley as he filled in as second reserve and played in position 5. Even though he lost 0:3 the spirit he brought to the team was exceptional.
So all eyes where on Sean at 1 who secured our away win with a 3:0 game.
This lifted us to fourth in the league. Great team effort with extra cheering from the sidelines of team captain Thomas
We are looking forward to welcome Towers 4 this Tuesday at home and we hope to have great support from the home crow.

At 3 Stephen broke the curse of being 2 sets up and than to having nothing to show for it; he lost the first set but brought it home 3:1. In position 4 Tim was promoted to play the higher ranking and did amazingly against a much higher ranked opponent but even though this game was lost he got a well earned point out of it. At 5 we welcomed Sophia to the team who had not played a competitive match for some time. After a few games back and forth she won her match 3:2 Well done everyone.

Beds Team 1st Match

Luton and Dunstable Squash Team is back in Division 2 for the Winter LeagueRead more: Beds Team 1st Match

Our first game was Tuesday 10th October against Milton Keynes Open University
Ww lost the match 3:2 however there was some great squash played and in summary

Steven and Tim had tough matches, each losing 3:1. In Glen’s case he was forced to retire at 1 game eachIt’s clear they gave their best efforts, but the competition was tough.

John’s comeback victory from two sets down, winning 3: was the highlight of the match. This shows remarkable determination and skill and never give up attitude. Thomas, as the team captain, led by example with a commanding 3:0 win. In summary, our team had its ups and downs, with John’s impressive comeback and Thomas’s dominant win being the standout moments. It was clear that this new experience was the first of many matches and nerves were clearly a factor in some of the games. The Captain’s message was “Keep working on your game and there’s potential for even better results in the future!”

It’s great to hear that our team is ready for redemption in the upcoming game against Biggleswade. Sometimes, the motivation to bounce back from a loss can lead to improved performance.

And kudos to our team for looking sharp in those shirts! It’s always nice to have a strong sense of team unity and pride in your appearance. Don’t forget to give a shout-out to our sponsors; their support can make a big difference in a team’s success.

Best of luck in your game on Tuesday! 17th. May our team’s performance achieve the redemption you’re aiming for.

Please support us with encouragement this Tuesday for our Home Game!!
