Melbourn I vs Hunts County I (22nd March 2023)

Melbourn won 15-7

Melbourn 1sts late burst of form, winning three of their final five matches in the Cambridge Squash League Division 1 season, came too late as other results conspired to relegate them despite their final day 15-7 win over Hunts County 1sts.
Melbourn went into the Hunts match knowing they needed a minimum of 15 points to give themselves any chance of survival. They got that, but only just with Mark Oppen (5) and Matt Sampson (1) contributing 3-0 wins, Vinod Duraikan (3) winning 3-1 and Miles Jeanneret (4) notching a point in a 3-1 reverse. Chris Shaw (2) was beaten 3-0 in the other string by former Melbourn player Malik Bilen.
Having done their part Melbourn saw their hopes of sneaking up to a play-off dashed though by results elsewhere, leaving the local club bottom of the table and returning back to Division 2 once again.
