Captain Alicia Venables believes the team have learnt a lot from the experience and will be back stronger next year.

“We lost but I could see how much the team have improved,” she said.

“I’m hoping we can build on this season as we prepare for the next one.

“I know Cassie [Mason] and myself are definitely around next year, so we should remain positive ahead of next year.”

The opening match saw varsity debutant Emma Pursey take on Cardiff’s Amy Robbins.

Pursey got off to a great start leading 3-1 after four points before Robbins turned it on to win it 11-7.

Robbins won the following two games to seal the first win.

Third seed Mason took on Georgie Durell in the following match.

Despite a determined performance from Mason, Durell raced away and secured another win for Cardiff.

Number two seed Lily Lai took on Cardiff’s Jolanta Migdalska.

Lai produced some strong boast shots but was frequently made to chase around court by Migdalska.

Migdalska finished on top, winning the match 3-1.

Captain Venables was last on court as she took on Ursula Szegner.

The match was a tight one with both players playing some high octane squash.

Szegner went on to win 3-1.
