Stamford Players meet in Hong Kong
Stamford Squash Club No.1 Spencer ‘Bez’ Beresford also plays for the RAF squash team, and on a recent tour to Hong Kong bumped into none other than the legendary ex-Stamford player Mike Ferriera, now moved on from New York and living and working in Honkers.
The RAF Team (which also included yet another ex-Stamford player, now moved to Anglesey, Glynn Williams) played against local clubs including the Hong Kong Football Club, Hong Kong Cricket Club, Kowloon Cricket Club, Hong Kong Squash Centre and the Ladies Recreational Club (LRC) where Bez played Mike (losing 3-0).
To mark the fixture, Bez bravely asked for, and received, dispensation to play in the Stamford strip pictured here, rather than the RAF Team strip, for that match. It may not have helped him win, but he would certainly have looked good.
