29th Sept 2016 : Friendly at Roehampton
Barnes kicked off their winter season of friendly matches against Roehampton on 29 October. The match was played in a typically competitive but lighthearted spirit. John Roche, the only rookie in the Barnes team, took to the court first. Although dropping the first two games, he battled back to 2-2, before succumbing in the fifth. Paul Williams, Euan Macfarlane and David Crane all had good matches and ended up comfortable winners. All that was left was for John Adam, the club champion, to add the coup de grace. With the rest of the team watching, John confidently stepped onto the court....and lost 0-3. It was no disgrace, however, as his opponent was an exceptional squash player. The overall result was a pleasing 3-2 win for Barnes. All that was left to do was head to the clubhouse for lasagna and a beer or two. Thank you to the Roehampton team for their good sportsmanship and good company.
