FIRST WIN OF THE SEASON FOR NEW MILTON D! (WEEK 7 RESULTS)
The New Milton Table Tennis Club’s teams managed to win four out of their nine matches in the Bournemouth and District league last week. The D team secured their first win of the season in Div 2 as they beat Ringwood A 7-3 at Mudeford Wood aided and abetted by a hat-trick from thirteen year old Kai Major, his second of the campaign. Young Major was voted the club’s most improved player last season and his progress continues apace as he made the seamless transition from Div 4 to Div 2. Kai is pictured below receiving his “Most Improved Player of the Year” award from Club President Bob Fagan back in July.
The club’s best victory however came in Div 1 as the B team beat Breamore 8-2 in their own back yard. England veteran Brian Bickell came up with his third hat-trick this season and in so doing deprived ex club mate Geoff Ware of his 100% record. Ware got his revenge on Shaun Newcomb and Zoltan Karip-Barath who had to settle for two apiece. The doubles were needed for maximum points and Bickell and Newcomb did the honours.
The F team came up with their second win in a row as they beat Div 3 strugglers Ringwood C by 6-4 at Mudeford Wood. Also in Div 3, the G team got back to winning ways as they beat Merton H 7-3 in their own back yard. Simon Golding dropped a match for the second week in a row, but the team’s other Simon (Daish) came up with his second treble of the campaign.
Despite a hat-trick from captain Frank Handy, his E team still managed to lose 4-6 to fellow Div 2 high-fliers Broadstone B at Mudeford Wood. The club’s other treble-maker, new signing Francis Benjamin helped his K team to hold Bmth Sports N to a 5-5 draw down at Chapel Gate.
