First Hat-Trick Of The Season For Cap’n Les! (Week 9 Results)

The New Milton Table Tennis Club won three out of its seven matches in the Bournemouth and District league last week, the best result coming from their H team (Div 4) who demolished Shamrock B 9-1 in their own back yard. Captain Les Smith (pictured below) led from the front with his first hat-trick of his campaign and he was joined in his treble by George Roberts.

At the wrong end of a 9-1 scoreline, the B team suffered their worst defeat of the campaign in Div 1 as they were hammered by Bmth Sports D down at Chapel Gate. England Veteran Brian Bickell drew his first blank of the season, but Milton’s blushes were spared by Zoltan Karip-Barath who picked up his team’s solitary win.

Div 2 saw the E team beat Ringwood B by 7-3 home at the Grange courtesy of hat-tricks from captain Frank Handy and James Lewis. The club’s other win came in Div 3 as the F team beat Bmth Sports K 6-4 at Mudeford Wood aided and abetted by Mike Roberts’ second hat-trick of the season. The F’s captain Malcolm Nash came very close to recording his first treble of the campaign as he was level-pegging after the fourth end, having lost the first two against Bourne’s Ali Malloch. However, after giving his all, the fifth proved a bridge too far as he went down 5-11 to wave goodbye to his first treble, at least for the time being.  Full results are below:-
