STOP PRESS: CLOSE BUT NO CIGAR FOR H TEAM!
It was a “clash of the titans” in Div 4 as the H team (Matthew Winter, Luke Gurton & Svet Ignatov) slugged it out with Bmth Sports R (Matt Broadhead, Jon Tennant & Tom Hickman) for the second promotion spot at Arnewood School on Tuesday night (9th April).
Milton needed at least a draw against the Bourne hopefuls, and Milton had reason to believe as they had beaten Bourne 7-3 in the first round in their own back yard. It was nip and tuck throughout but Bournemouth had it won at 6-3. Winter and Ignatov combined well in the doubles to take them in three straight sets but the Bourne were already dreaming of Div 3 table tennis. Congratulations Bournemouth and commiserations to Milton.
