Rob can strike it rich again

NORSTAR LON­DON RAIDERS have been one of the most pro­gres­sive MGBSFL clubs in re­cent years and I think there is lit­tle dan­ger of sec­ond sea­son syn­drome, even with a change of man­age­ment.

Rob Rich­man faces an in­cred­i­bly tough task as L’Or­ange look to im­prove on an un­be­liev­able sea­son – one in which they fell ag­o­nis­ingly short of their first ma­jor piece of sil­ver­ware.

Pre-merger, Rich­man guided the club’s B-team into the Pre­mier Di­vi­sion. The chal­lenge that now awaits him is one he will rel­ish and I look for­ward to see­ing the cal­i­bre of player he will at­tempt to bring in that can help take the club to the next level.

No doubt Hen­don, Oak­wood, Red­bridge and Faith­fold will strengthen. Dras­tic changes are not needed at Brunel. Just a lit­tle tin­ker­ing. The spine of the team is out­stand­ing, but I think they would ben­e­fit from a no-non­sense ball-win­ner in the mid­dle of the park.

The ti­tle of top ta­ble ten­nis player in the com­mu­nity will be up for grabs on July 20. Sev­eral mem­bers of the Team Mac­cabi GB 2013 Mac­cabiah squad are ex­pected to be in ac­tion at the Mac­cabi GB cham­pi­onships.

The tour­na­ment, to be held at the Lon­don Academy in Edg­ware, in­cludes Sin­gles and Dou­bles - both sec­tions are from U12 to Over 60’s, with an ex­tra mixed com­pe­ti­tion in the lat­ter. Reg­is­tra­tion closes on July 11 so those look­ing to com­pete must sign via www.mac­cabigb.org/mac­cabi-gb-na­tion­altableten­nis-cham­pi­onships.
