Chris Moss faced Nick Newson and was quickly a game down losing the first 15-7. Moss changed things round in the second with judicious use of the boast to take the game 15-8.

Games 3 and 4 were both tight with Newson taking the third 15-11 and Moss the fourth 15-12. The deciding game was evenly matched to start but Moss then fell away allowing Newson to take the game 15-10.

At number two Jimmy Hart took on the experienced Paul Crowson. Hart, playing his best squash of the summer, took the first 15-10 before Crowson won the second 15-12. The next two games were both tight, going to tiebreakers. Both went in favour of Crowson 17-15 and 18-16 to secure a home victory.

Rich Anthony, making his summer season debut at number one against Chris Hunt, got off to a flying start taking the first game 15-11. Some wily play from Hunt won him the second 15-7.

As with the previous two matches games three and four proved to be tight but Letchworth prevailed with Hunt taking both games 15-13.
