New Milton D have been struggling in the Bournemouth & District Table Tennis league this season but last week they were celebrating a 9-1 victory over Div 2 basement boys North Bournemouth B. Milton are second from bottom, so this win, only their second of the season but their best, was a classic eight-pointer against their victims. Captain Terry Jenvey led from the front with his first hat-trick of the campaign and was joined in a treble by Chris Pusey, his first hat-trick of the season also. Roy Hobbs only just missed out on his own hat-trick as he lost to North’s Maggie White 9-11 in the fifth and final set having narrowly lost the fourth 11-13.

There were good wins from both New Milton teams in Div 5 as the K and L teams picked up maximum points. The K team (Malcolm Douglas, Mike Gent & Geoff Biggs) beat Nimrod C 8-2 in their own back yard courtesy of hat-tricks from captain Douglas and Gent. The match was delicately poised at 3-2 in Milton’s favour then the visitors won the next five matches including the doubles. Captain Douglas (pictured below) had led by example to bag his first hat-trick of the season, including a win over ex Milton player Chris Courage, Gent came up with his third treble and Biggs chipped in with the one win.

The L team (Maggie Brown, Adam Titcombe & Bill Collinge) went one better and beat bottom-dwelling Bmth Sports P 9-1 home at the Grange, Somerford. 13 year old Titcombe came up with his second hat-trick, Brown scored her first hat-trick for the club and Collinge scored a treble in his first game for his own team.
