Luxembourg finishes in 18th place of 28 teams
On Saturday , the CITCO-sponsored Luxembourg men’s squash team played their final match of the European Team Squash Championships in Amsterdam against the Czech Republic. At stake was 17th place after Luxembourg’s impressive start to the tournament. The Czechs proved too strong for the Luxembourg squad, the first two matches on court resulting in defeat 3/0 for Nathan Sneyd at no1 and Vince Pauli at no.4. When Daniel Kaiser at no.3 lost the first set, the match was over, but young Danny Hutchines, playing at no.2 in a "dead rubber" put in a good disciplined performance to take the game 2/1 after being a set down. That completed a good week for Danny, who won all of his four matches during the week. Luxembourg therefore finished in 18th place out of 28 teams, a wonderful performance having not played at this level for 11 years.
Nathan SNEYD lost to Pavel SLADECEK 4/9 ; 2/9 ; 0/9
Danny HUTCHINES beat Lukas JEUNEK 5/9 ; 9/6 ; 9/1
Daniel KAISER lost to Jaroslav CECH 0/9 ; 3/9
Vincent PAULI lost to Ondrej ERTL 2/9 ; 3/9 ; 0/9
