Good Away-Days For New Milton Table Tennis Players
The New Milton Table Tennis Club’s teams could only muster three wins out of nine matches in the Bournemouth and District league last week, but one of them was a real humdinger from the K team in Div 5 as they trounced Winton YMCA G by 9-1 in their own back yard.
16 year old Lucy Craddock came up with her first ever hat-trick in the league as did promising new signing Alex Whitehead. Captain Fern Daish bagged a brace and then Lucy capped her evening by helping Fern to win the doubles.
The next best result came from the New Milton E team as they beat Lynwood C by 8-2 chez Lynwood. Captain Frank Handy led from the front with yet another hat-trick and was joined in his treble by 15 year old Peter Daish. Bobo Jiang had to be content with a brace for the second week running.
Other players worthy of a mention are Terry Jenvey (D team captain) who came up with his first hat-trick of the season and the H team’s Dave Strike who clocked up his second treble in a row. A very busy Richard Brockbank played up for the H team in Div 4 helping them to a 5-5 draw, and the following night helped his own L team to snatch a point in Div 5. New signing Richard Clampin also played his part in that by registering his first win in the league. Full results are below:-
