Jupiter Premier League - Cycle 3 report

Main Image

The first week of the Jupiter Premier League started with usual suspects showing consistent form which set the scene for the rest of the cycle. Henry Birch kicked off with a 3-0 win over an in-form Laurence Graham showing positive signs leading up to the Guernsey Championships. In league 4 Chris de Putron and Tom Eulenkamp had a gut-wrenchingly close encounter with Chris just edging the match 3-2, both players knew the others game well due to playing in the same team in Monday night squash (could there be a change in the pecking order going forward!?)

One of the highlights of the cycle saw Janick Radford squeeze a 3-2 win over PJ Josey in week 4. After an hour and fifteen minutes of hard graft from both players Radford managed to hit a few more winners on the important points and make Josey work hard. A dominant performance from Callum Wrench earned him promotion and saw only Matt Robin take a game off him. Wrench was closely followed by Matt Robilliard in the finishing order, who won a tough deciding match between him and Andy Biggins for promotion.

League 3 saw Alex Robin and Kevin Murphy earn promotion with 21 points, although they had to put up a fight with Tony “the 5 setter” Jones closely following on 20 points. Leo Fossey had a great cycle in his return to the Premier league only dropping a game to Natalie Dodd to win the league. Natalie also had a positive cycle beating the rest of her opponents 3-2 in some super-tight battles. Leagues 4 & 5 saw stand out performances from Adam Thoumine and Bruce Tostevin who both managed to win their respective leagues with the majority of their wins being 3-0 or 3-1.

It’s great to see players performing consistently in the higher divisions with just a few weeks left until the Inter Insular and European Team Championships. This will surely cause Jersey some headaches and gives Guernsey a strong chance to come out with a victory!
