Hi all,

Just to let you know that our boys played some amazing
squash today (16th April 2016) and got all the way to the Semi’s. We placed 4th out of 30 county
teams, finishing behind, Sussex, Kent and Yorkshire.

We beat Warwickshire, Lincolnshire and Essex on route.
Boys are shattered, but all of them had a great time and did the county proud.

Couple of photo’s attached.

Junior U13’s Update

I am posting this on behalf of Jon Sharpe.

Team: U13’s

Billy Whalley (Newton Abbot)

Ioan Sharpe (Newton Abbot)

Max Cockram (D&E)

Sam Bishop (Fort Stamford)

Seb Walker (Newton Abbot)

Toby Roberts (Newton Abbot)

Developing U11’s

Eddie Whalley (Newton Abbot)

Luca Colombini (Newton Abbot)

Coach: Jon Sharpe

Team Manager: Matt Whalley

Sponsor: Centrax

This season our Devon U13’s have surpassed all
expectations. We’ve even managed to pick up some commercial interest with
Centrax providing sponsorship, and some great kit (Thanks to Matt Whalley for
organising). With an average age of just 10.5 the boys progressed to the
Semifinals stage of the English Intercounties with fantastic wins over Cornwall
(4-1) and a very strong Dorset side (3-2), playing with Billy Whalley and Ioan
Sharpe (both 9 years old at the time) at the top of the order.

Unfortunately, the semi’s proved a step too far this
season, with tough games against Gloucestershire, Warwickshire and Surrey, with
each of these teams including several top 10 England U13’s players. We showed
real grit though, eventually losing 3-2 to Gloucestershire who progressed to
the finals.

We had time for a friendly match in Bude against
Cornwall, on 20th Feb, taking 6 U13’s squad players and a couple of developing
U11’s. Another fine win for the Devon boys!

Next season is looking promising with Billy Whalley progressing
up the English U11’s rankings rapidly and Ioan reaching the Number 1 spot in
Wales U11’s. We will have the magnificent Toby and Sam for another couple of
seasons too, so we have a very bright future in this age group.

Next up, we have the English U11’s national tournament in
Warwickshire in April which we could potentially do very well in.

Thanks to all the parents who have helped this season.
