First International Call-Up For Matthew Daish!
The following report and photo were submitted to the New Milton Advertiser by Duncan Daish and I am grateful for his kind permission to reproduce it here:-
Local table tennis player 16 year old Matthew Daish, a member of the New Milton Table Tennis Club, has been selected to represent England in the up-coming Six Nations Schools International to be held in Jersey. Following a jump from being ranked 32nd last season to currently 14th in the U18 national rankings, his selection comes after being placed third in the National Schools U16 Individual Championships. Matthew played in the German league for Mainz during the 2016-17 season but has now transferred to Niederkassel-near Cologne- to play more regularly in a higher division. Matthew is grateful to Colten Care for their continued sponsorship this year, “ … a major reason for my rapid improvement, helping me to train more often and take part in more tournaments”. Matthew can be followed on his website www.matthewdaish.com.
Congratulations to Matthew from all at New Milton Table Tennis Club and good luck in Jersey!
