Inaugural outing for EFS sponsored kit

Friday 16th November saw the first of a trilogy of competitions held at Lexden Squash and rackets club, Chitts Hill, Colchester.
With Mersea fielding two teams, both teams sporting their brand new EFS sponsored kit, to compete against Stanway's two teams, Tiptree and Milldene.

Mersea A vs Mersea B was the first on the agenda Mersea A keen to take no prisoners, but Mersea B also out to prove a point, and prove a point they did as the only two year 5's of the two teams (Hugh and Lucy) took their matches for the B team to deny Mersea A of a clean sweep. Final score Mersea A 49- Mersea B 32.

Mersea B moved on to Milldene to win 60 - 3, but then showed a real kindness as coach and children descended on court to help develop Milldene's skills, ready for round 2.

Mersea A team took on Stanway A  to win 60-8 with a clinical win. Leaving them in second place in the table at this early stage with great statistics in points for and against them. Mersea B holding 3rd position at this early stage.

1st     Tiptree         120
2nd    Mersea A     109
