FIRST WIN FOR THE JAYS! (WEEK 8 RESULTS)
The New Milton Table Tennis Club’s teams came up with four wins out of ten matches in the Bournemouth and District league last week. The J team were celebrating their first win of the campaign while their captain Lynn Willrich was away on business in Florida. Fourteen year old Campbell Golding bagged a brace in his very first match of the season, and was joined in his double by 13 year old Elliott Storr-Smith and the not-quite-so-young Geoff Biggs to make it 6-4 against Bmth Sports N in Div 5.
Another thirteen year old, Kai Major is now scoring hat-tricks for fun as his treble helped his D team to their second 7-3 win in a row in Div 2, this week against North Bmth away at Winton. Also in Div 2, the E team got back to winning ways as they beat Merton F 8-2 courtesy of hat-tricks from captain Frank Handy and James Lewis home at the Grange. The club’s best win however came in Div 3 as the G team hammered the high-flying Merton G 9-1 at the Mudeford Wood Community Centre. Danny Williams (pictured below) came up with his second hat-trick of the season whilst Simon Daish topped that with his third treble.
The Premier saw the top of the table clash where mathematically at least the New Milton A team could exchange places at the top of the league with leaders Bmth Sports B if they beat them. As it happened the Bourne team turned up a player short which gifted Milton a point from their 3-7 defeat.
