Triumphs for JLL & CBRE at 2016 Squash Finals evening
2016 Tournament reached a thrilling conclusion at the RAC in front of an
enthused gallery of supporters and spectators.
for the main “Trophy” , 2015 winners, JLL were pitched against last year’s “Plate”
champions Bilfinger GVA . JLL raced into an early lead thanks to Matt Connor
defeating Alex Stevens. The squash court seemed all too small for No. 2 strings
JLL’s Oli Marcroft and GVA’s Ollie Slack but in a compelling contest the JLL
man won through to take the match and title. GVA No.1 James Pickles restored
respectability to the overall match in beating Paul Sweeney 3-1 but the overall
match score of 2 v1 saw JLL retain the trophy.
Plate final was playing our simultaneously on the adjacent court . CBRE no.3
string Ed Chrimes dug deep in a seesaw against Ernst & Young Real Estate’s James
Baudains before the EY man squeaked through 3-2.
(very commendable first time finalists) No.2 Steve Horncastle found the going
tough against CBRE’s George Harper who levelled the match at 1-1. With the
title hanging on the result, EY’s Roshan Chhatralia took the early initiative
against CBRE’s Theo Holmes. In a ding dong the two swapped the lead in the match
of the night which ended in a thrilling and exhausting 5th set won by Holmes by the narrowest of margins. Plate
Honours to CBRE 2v1.
