Match Report
Marlborough College Boys U16 vs  National Schools Stage 1
On: Wednesday, 15 Nov 2023
Venue: Away

It was good to play the outright favourites first (Wycliffe College), as this allowed the boys an opportunity to warm-up and get used to the courts before the two must-win fixtures. They performed well and learnt a great deal, but all lost to superior, full-time squash players.

The next fixture against Balcarras saw the 3,4 and 5 seeds stepping up and performing well, all three claiming important victories. It was tough at the top, as usual, but Toby and Archie both put in excellent performances against strong opposition.

The final fixture saw the boys pulling off a solid win against newcomers Malvern, so securing 2nd spot and a place in the main (Championship) draw.

vs Wyclife: lost 44/165

vs Balcarras: won 121/104

vs Malvern: won 148/119
