Cup Competitions: Full Draws for President’s and Chairman’s Cups

The Wandsworth and District Table Tennis League Cup Competitions kick off the season with some exciting match ups. The President’s Cup (the straight knock out competition) Round 1: Vale “A” vs York Gdns “E”, York Gdns “I” vs Tigers and Dragons, York Gdns “F” vs York Gdns “D”, York Gdns “B” vs St Pauls “C”, York Gdns “H” vs St Pauls “A”,  York Gdns “G” vs York Gdns “A”, St Pauls “B” vs York Gdns “J”, York Gdns “C” were given a bye into round 2 but this was before they pulled out of the season.

In the Chairman’s Cup (a knock out competition with a handicapping system to make it competitive for all teams) two rounds are being played. Round 1: Vale “C” (+3) vs York Gdns “H”, XXIV Club (+3) vs York Gdns “E”, the following 4 teams get a bye into round 2; York Gdns “J”, York Gdns “D”, Vale “A”, St Pauls “B”. Chairmans Cup Round 2: Tigers and Dragons (+3) vs York Gdns “G”, Wilton vs York Gdns “I” (+3), Vale “B” vs (+8) vs York Gdns “C”,  St Pauls “A” (+6) vs York Gdns “B”, St Pauls “C” (+6) vs York Gdns “F”.

New rule changes to make team line up more consistent

 Last season particularly in Division 1, the regular team line became a farce as teams struggled to full a regular squad so this season the league is trying out a new rule to stop players “hopping” from one team to another. Guidance for the new rule is; “A player may play for one higher team only in each higher division for a maximum of three times in each half.  Where the higher team is in the same division as the one he is registered for, playing up is limited to one more occasion only in each half.”

This season also sees a change in Match Secretary as John Llewellyn (me!) has been chosen to take over from Mike Huband who has done a truly amazing job for so many years. It means that time and money can be saved as the score cards can be emailed to me as an image file or just fill in the match updates section (Click here).

Division 1   Preview:   York Gardens “A” still look like being top

 Division 1 this season looks very similar to last season as it is basically York Gardens “A”, “B”, and “D” with Vale “A” completing the line up. York Gardens “C” were also given a place but the latest news is that York Gardens are unable to fulfil a squad. This means there are only 4 teams in the division so effectively no one will get relegated! The Vale “A” squad is the same as last season; Andy Sanders, Doug Taucher, Ron Brown and Wojtek Czubek. York Gardens “A” is Musa Farquharson, Leo Veinsreider and Selwyn Campbell. York Gardens “B” Cain Fagan, William Ampomah, Shola Olabiyi, Ronaldo Duke. York Gardens “D” Philip Sangchin, Silvia Trenti, Mark Philips, Siomon Philips, Hewley Griffith, Laikram Persaud, Andrei Procopie

Division 2   Preview:  St Pauls “A” and Wilton look favourites but York Gadens “E” could cause a surprise

 St Pauls “A” start Division 2 as slight favourites but with a shortage of available players for the start of the season Wilton and York Gardens “E” will definitely be strong competition. New to the division this season is St Pauls “B” lead by the dangerous Rob Barr and Rob Knifton. Team line ups; St Pauls “A” John Llewellyn, Paul Rowley, Mike Nash, David Paez, Keith Sharkey, Vaishakh Nagir. St Pauls “B” Rob Barr, Rob Knifton, Luke Pomaro, Simon Kempton. Wilton Paul Couper, Paul West, Richard Evans, Emiliano Laghi, Eric Jeanpierre, York Gardens “E” Derek Donegan, Elena Moraru, Cliff Grant. York Gardens “F” Colin Morrow, Philip Marlow, Tony Lee, Janice Lee.

 Division 3    Preview:  XXIV Club, Vale “B”, York Gardens “G” make it anyone's title

 Division 3 is up for grabs and looking at this season’s line up anyone of the 5 teams could be contenders. Last season XXIV Club were very dangerous and Vale “B” were a little unlucky, but the York Gardens squads of the “G”, “H” and “I”  could cause a surprise.  Team line ups; XXIV Club Peter Klocek, Tom O’malley, Steve Sin, Mike Bright, J Fowler. Vale “B” Tom Coady, Don Stevens, T Higgs. York Gardens “G” Ismai’l Miller, Khaled Uddin, Anthony Atkins, Dave Wareham. York Gardens “H”  Richard Gayle, Jessica Monis, Sajid Patel. York Gardens “I”  Flavia Wade, Charlie Gaan, Grant Davidson, Kris Brzezinski, Solomon Moodie.

Division 4     Preview:  Could new boys Tigers and Dragons steal the show?

 Division 4 sees the new boys of Tigers and Dragons who potentially have a strong squad (although unannounced ) who could just steal the show and win it. St Pauls “C” are also quite strong as are York Gardens “J”, with the old faithful's of Vale “C” and Heathfield always capable of causing an upset or two. Team line ups: St Pauls “C” Peter Lyall, Rob Liori, Faisal Ali, Clark Geddes, Francis Edge, Tom Edge. Vale “C” Jeff Collin, Dave Tomkins, Roy Holmes.  Heathfield Bob Tidbury, Andy Brooks, Harry Greatwood, John Tilly.  York Gardens “J”   Mike Noble, Joe Leone, Pawel Meryn, Irfaan Baksh.  Tigers and Dragons (unknown).
