JAYS CHIRPY OVER FIRST WIN OF THE SEASON!
The New Milton Table Tennis Club won five out of their eight matches in the Bournemouth & District league last week, albeit two of those wins came at the expense of their own teams in local derbies. The J team were celebrating their first win of the season as they beat Bmth Sports M 8-2, thanks to hat-tricks from Ben Greene and Andrew Stainton, and one win from captain Lynn Willrich (pictured below) to get her season off the mark.
The Premier saw the A team (Steve Hemmings, Russell Wilson & Paul Iliffe) trounce their B team (Shaun Newcomb, John Millward & Andy Tipsana) 9-1 down at Mudeford Wood. Tipsana, playing up from Div 1 spared his team’s blushes as he beat Iliffe, his team-mate from the C team, who bagged a creditable brace for the A’s.
In their Div 2 derby, the E team (Simon Golding, Andrew Daish & Peter Daish) claimed bragging rights over their D team (Terry Jenvey, Bob Fagan & Chris Pusey) as they beat them 6-4, thanks to hat-tricks from Simon Golding and Peter Daish.
The C team continue their winning start in Div 1 as they beat newly promoted Bmth Sports F 8-2 in their own back yard at Chapel Gate, courtesy of a hat-trick from Gerard Redman and a brace apiece from captain Frank Handy and new signing Rob Blackmore.
The H team remain unbeaten in Div 4 as they beat Nimrod B 7-3 thanks to yet another hat-trick from Dave Sutton, a brace from stand-in captain Eddie Tompkins and one win from Bill Collinge playing up from Div 5.
The G team were unlucky not to take a draw from their match against newly promoted Bmth Sports K in Div 3. Captain Graham Underwood won two of his singles and Elliott Storr-Smith and Bev Scott-Johns had chipped in with one apiece to make it 4-5 before the doubles. Underwood & Scott-Johns combined valiantly but just lost the fifth and final set by 10-12 to lose their unbeaten run by 4-6.
