Vet­er­ans clos­ing in on re­tain­ing crown Louis France Hud­der­s­field Table Ten­nis League

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

Di­vi­sion Two: Wood­field Park B 5 (David Bow­ers 3, Derek Moor­house 1, Janet West 1) Marsh Con C 5 (David Black­burn 1, Ed Bowen 2, Bob San­der­son 1)

Di­vi­sion Three: Marsh Con D 8 (Alan West 2, John Hall 2, Glyn Nor­man­ton 3) Deighton Leisure Cen­tre F 2 (Sarah Amin 2); Deighton Leisure Cen­tre F 4 (Nigel Pin­nock 1, Ryan Moon 2, Len­nox Cadore 1) U3A A 6 (Andy Parker 3, Steve Caulfield 2) Hud­der­s­field Table Ten­nis League of­fi­cials (from left) Janet Adams (League Pres­i­dent), Tim Dyson (League Chair­man) and Rob Hand (MD of League Spon­sor Louis France Ltd) cou­ple of oc­ca­sions at 3-1 and 4-2 but, from then on, the match was a close fought af­fair as the teams could not be sep­a­rated. David Bow­ers gained his first max­i­mum of the sea­son for Wood­field Park.

In Di­vi­sion Three, Deighton Leisure Cen­tre F were in­volved in a cou­ple of re­ar­ranged matches.

In the first of those matches Marsh Con D were the vic­tors as Alan West (2), John Hall (2), Glyn Nor­man­ton (3) and a West and Nor­man­ton dou­bles gave the Marsh side a com­fort­able 8-2 win.

The re­sult leaves the Marsh team in a strong po­si­tion at the top end of the di­vi­sional table.

An­other team chal­leng­ing at the top of this di­vi­sion is U3A A and they en­joyed a nar­row vic­tory over Deighton with Andy Parker (3) and Steve Caulfield (2), plus a Parker and Caulfield dou­bles, the scor­ers.

The match was tied at 4-4, but Parker and Caulfield each won their fi­nal sin­gles sets.

U3A may strug­gle to main­tain their chal­lenge for the pro­mo­tion places as they are likely to miss the ser­vices of Andy Parker for a num­ber of weeks, plus an­other reg­u­lar mem­ber of the team, Doug Holt, is strug­gling to take part in matches.
