Shield and Shied Plate Finals 5th
April 2013

The finals of the Devon Shield and Shield
Plate took place at the Devon & Exeter Squash & Racketball Club on

In the Shield Competition ( for clubs
outside the top eight in Devon) Newton Abbot
were too strong for Exmouth with Lee
Curtis, Tom Haysom, Dave Brown and John
Sharpe winning in straight games and Nigel Bell only dropping a close first
game to Carl Sowden.

The teams in the Plate competition were
more evenly matched. Paul Clare and
captain Rob Cann won in four and five games respectively to give Sidmouth a
two-love lead. However Plymouth University’s Josh Huitson
and Dewi Banks levelled the score with straight game wins over Nigel Desousa
and Alick Russell. The deciding match
between Chris Woodruff and Ben Holding was probably the best of the evening
with Ben edging out Chris in the fifth game to give Plymouth University victory.
