Division 1   York Gardens B concede walk over to Vale A in final match

 York Gardens B conceded a walk over to Vale A in the final match of the season in division 1. This result affected the league table by moving Vale A into 3rd position. This season has been an exciting one with quality table tennis from all teams in the division. York Gardens D deservedly won the title and has been able to pull out some strong players with the largest squad of 9 players used. Despite the many different names it was their regular top player Laikram Persaud (pictured by Mike Loveder) who led them to victory and was quite rightly the league’s top player again this season. York Gardens A who have ruled the roost for a long time came second by 2 points and again had the strength in depth with  Musa Farquaharson and Leo Veinsreider, but seem to have found a solid 3rd player in Anthony Allen. Next half will be exciting as there will be no gaps in the divisions with matches being played every week. Final positions:   1st York Gdns D 18 pts, 2nd York Gdns A 16 pts, 3rd Vale A 8 pts, 4th York Gdns B 6 pts.

Division 2   Dominating performances from York Gardens F and St Pauls B to finish in style

 St Pauls B devastated their A team with 9 – 1 whipping to confirm their promotion to division 1. For St Pauls B Rob Barr pulled off his best win of the season beating John Llewellyn to go unbeaten along with Simon Kempton who looked to be in formidable form, Rob Knifton won 2 singles and St Pauls A gave them the doubles. For St Pauls A Luke Pomaro swapped sides as they were a player short but lost his 3 singles, Mike Nash was again unlucky to lose his 3, and John Llewellyn was their only winner beating Rob Knifton. York Gardens F had their best win of the season winning 9 – 1 against Wilton. This win meant they won division 2 by 2 points. For York Gardens F the surprise only loser was Colin Morrow  (pictured) who lost to the talented Richard Evans, prior to that Colin had gone undefeated throughout the division, both Janice Lee and Philip Marlow were unbeaten and Colin and Philip took the doubles. For Wilton Eric Jeanpierre and Paul Couper lost their matches with Richard Evans winning 1. Final positions:  1st York Gdns F 18 pts, 2nd St Pauls B 16 pts,  3rd St Pauls A 8 pts, 4th Wilton 6 pts.

 Division 3   York Gardens G take division 3 title and 4 teams get promoted

 York Gardens G took the 3rd division by 9 points from XXIV Club and Vale B both on 17 points. XXIV Club came 2nd thanks to scoring 4 wins to Vales’ 3. With the regrouping of the divisions in the second half of the season it means there will be 3 full divisions (6 teams each) so 4 teams will be promoted to the 2nd division from division 3. In the last matches of the season Vale B beat XXIV Club 6 – 4. For Vale Tom Higgs won 3, with Tom Coady winning 2, and Don Stevens being unlucky to lose his 3, Vale took the double to win the match. For XXIV Club, Steve Sin and Peter Klocek both won 1 each, with Tom O’malley winning 2.  York Gardens H finished their season with 8 – 2 victory against York Gardens I. For York Gardens H Jessica Monis (pictured by Mike Loveder) was “girl of the match” going unbeaten including a great win over  Krzys Brzezinski, both Richard Gayle and Sajid Patel won 2 each and Richard and Jess took the doubles. For York Gardens I big Krzys Brzezinski and Grant Davidson both won 1 each with Charlie Gaan again losing his 3.   Final Positions:  1st York Gdns G 26 pts, 2nd XXIV Club 17 pts,

3rd Vale B 17 pts, 4th York Gdns H 14 pts, 5th York Gdns I 6 pts

Division 4   Vale C worthy champions who turned back the clock

Vale C took the division 4 title by 1 point from York Gardens J, although they conceded a walk over to Heathfield in their final match and could easily have won the divisions by more points had they played it. The team of Roy Holmes, Tommy Tomkins and Jeff Collin have played as a team together longer than any other team in the league (over 40 years?) and have a combined age of over 200! So you are truly never too old to be playing table tennis. In the final match of the division 4 season Tigers & Dragons (T&G) beat St Pauls C 6 – 4. For T&G Olav Stahl played and not surprisingly won his 3 (I doubt he would lose many matches in division 1) Ken Burgess gave great support winning 2 and Stewart Katz lost his 3, but T&G took the doubles to win the match. For St Pauls C Steve Hoare mad a welcome return to the league winning 2, and there was 1 win apiece for Pete Bambridge and Faisal Ali.   Final positions:  1st Vale C 22 pts,

2nd York Gdns J 21 pts, 3rd Heathfield 15 pts, 4th St Pauls C 13 pts, T & G 9 pts.
