Welsh Wizards Hit The Road For Opening Premier Clash

Welsh Wizards launch their 2019-20 Premier Squash League season when they play Warwick away tonight (Tuesday).

Spanish ace Edmon Lopez, a 23-year-old from Barcelona, leads the Wizards team and will play Mumbai-born Mahesh Mangaonkar and that looks certain to be close and fiercely contested.

Mangaonkar is ranked 54 in the World, five places ahead of Wizards number one Lopez, and won gold as part of the Indian team at the 2014 Asian Games.

Caerphilly-born Peter Creed, from the Rhiwbina club in Cardiff, will be second string for Wizards and takes on Nick Wall, while Emyr Evans is at three. He will face Warwick’s Harry Falconer.

There are also two ladies games with Anna Serme and Anna Kimberley playing for Wizards. Serme plays Julianne Courtice and Kimberley takes on Lily Taylor.

Czech player Serme is ranked 66 in the World and faces World number 32 Courtice, while Kimberley, from Ipswich in Essex, is at 76, 11 places ahead of Taylor.
