Stags 1st Team travelled to Leicester this week and came away 3-2 winners

This season in the Leicestershire top division Stags can expect to come up against some formidable opposition in the guise of professional, semi professional and England / world ranked players; indeed this was the case with the Leicester team who boast sisters Lily and Mari Taylor who are rising stars in the game of Squash. Lily is currently England’s number 1, Under 18s female player with sister Mari aged 16 having a world ranking.

Nick Englert playing at No.5 took all three games off Mari but older sister Lily playing at No.2 beat Mitch Bates 3-1.

Simon Millward won his games 3-0 and Hari Patel 3-1.

Stags No.1 Scott Bates lost to Sam Hanley in the final game of the evening.

Stags are delighted and grateful to Sandie and Dan at the Stag and Pheasant Pub at Newton for sponsoring all three of their teams this year. The Stag and Pheasant provide after match meals for all home games.
