MCS vs Merchistonians Squash Match
12th March, 2018
The inaugural Merchiston Castle School (MCS) boys vs Merchistonians Squash Match took place on 8 March at Colinton Castle Squash Club. The match was initiated by Andy Duff (76-79) and Jim Hay, President of Scottish Squash, who coordinated bringing together six former pupils from a range of eras.
Merchiston players were members of the U19 and U16 teams. An informal arrangement for the match was arranged with one set being played between players. Whilst there were a few tight matches in general the former pupils’ experience came through, with the Merchistonians winning the majority of the games. However, current Merchiston number one player David, V Form, won all three of his matches with relative ease.
Following the success of this fixture, it is anticipated this will become a regular on the MCS fixture list.
