Sweet Revenge for New Milton D Team (Week 17 League Matches)

For the second week in a row, the New Milton Table Tennis Club’s teams won five out of their ten matches in the Bournemouth & District league, one of the wins coming at the expense of one of their teams in a local derby. The D team (Chris Pusey, Bob Fagan & Terry Jenvey), pictured below, were out for revenge after losing 4-6 to their E team in their first round derby, and they did just that by reversing the scoreline to win 6-4 this time. The E’s were missing their star captain Frank Handy but Gerard Redman kept his team’s end up with a fine hat-trick.


Three of the other Milton teams reversed first round defeats (G, H & K teams), but the most impressive change of fortune came from the K team in Div 5. The Kays lost 4-6 against Bmth Sports R away at Chapel Gate in the first round and were looking for revenge in the home return. Uncannily enough both teams fielded identical sides, the Kays once again with Fern Daish, Lynn Willrich & Alex Whitehead, and the table-topping Bourne featured Tom Collins and seasoned veterans Jim Simmonds & Robin Thomas. The comprehensive 8-2 Milton win completely belied the 27 points differential between Milton and the unbeaten Bournemouth team, thanks to a hat-trick from Whitehead and a brace apiece from the ladies. The doubles were needed to take maximum points against a shell-shocked Bourne, and the ladies fought really hard to edge it 3-2 to land the four precious points. Full results details are below:-
