Tough for Heywood

Heywood Sports Squash teams have got off to a sluggish start in their summer league campaigns.

The first team recorded a loss against Barnham Broom going down 14-3 with Jack Bell picking up a consolation win at third string.

The following week they also faced a below-strength Oasis team with both sides missing their number one, Neil Cross and Mark Nicholls respectively.

Diss won this encounter 16-5 with straight game victories and the bottom of the order from Bell and Dan Calver. Tom Bobbins won 3-2 at first string. Oasis' one win came from Ali Ponder who fought back from 2-1 down in games to beat Andy O'Toole 15-10 in the fifth.

Meanwhile the third team are still looking for their first win as they were beaten by Barnham Broom and Broadlands both 3-1.

Diss recorded wins at the top of the order in both matches through Bell and Bobbins.

Next week the Suffolk League team host Lexden in what should be a hot battle. Thursday night, 7.40pm. All spectators welcome.
