In the first stage of the Inter County Championship, Suffolk's U17 boys embarked on a tough trip to Connaught club, where they faced Surrey, Essex and Cambridgeshire. Firstly we faced Surrey who were incredibly strong all the way down the order, with everyone going down 3 games to 0. After the boys chowed down some lunch, we then faced Essex in a crunch fixture. First Ben and Dom went on at 3 & 5; Ben lost a thrilling 5 set match which went right to the wire 11-9 in the last. Dom and Sam went down in 3 tight games, before JP and Kian then went on. JP won with a classy 3-0 performance and Kian went down in 4. Last match of the day vs Norfolk, team managed a 4-1 win. With wins from our top 4 strings, and a hugely unlucky loss in 5 games for Dom saw the team take 3rd overall and finish a fantastic day's worth of squash. The team was managed by Josh Turmel, who was massively impressed with the fight the boys showed throughout the duration of a long day in Essex.
