DERBY DELIGHT FOR SOME! (WEEK 11 MATCHES)
Eight of the New Milton Table Tennis Club’s teams were involved in local derbies in the Bournemouth and District League last week. The only team to face opposition from outside of the club was the Premier’s A team who picked up an excellent 9-1 victory over Winton YMCA A, including hat-tricks from captain Steve Hemmings and teenager Matthew Daish.
The clash between the C and D teams in Division 2 resulted in what is probably the longest ever table tennis match to take place down at the Mudeford Wood Community Centre. All of the matches apart from two went all the way to five ends including three 11-13 scorelines which all went the way of the D team. The C’s Malcolm Floyd was on the wrong end of two of these as he drew his first blank of the season as his team lost 4-6. The victorious D team are pictured below (l-r Chris Pusey, Bobbie Fagan & Captain Terry Jenvey).
In Div 3, the G team beat the F team 7-3 aided and abetted by Clive Pitts’ first hat-trick of the campaign. In Div 4, the J team overturned the form book to beat the H team 6-4 thanks largely Mike Roberts’ fourth hat-trick of the season.
Div 5 saw the K team stick with the form book as they beat their L team 3-7 in their fourth win of the campaign. Lynn Willrich threatened to come up with her first hat-trick in her last league match but this week she did the deed. Alex Whitehead joined her in a treble and promising recent signing Lisa McGivney came up with her first win in only her second league outing. Full result details are below:-
