Kash­dan broth­ers aid B team

Bath Chronicle - - SPORT -

Bath­ford A played host to Bath­ford B in the sec­ond round of games in this win­ter’s Bath Table Ten­nis League but this en­counter didn’t go as planned for the A team. A Josh Kash­dan max­i­mum with a brace from his brother Leon - sup­ported by Peter Mott gave the B team an un­likely win. Al­bert Bol­huis’ brace wasn’t enough to pre­vent the A team, which also in­cluded Wil­liam Avery, go­ing down 18-25 to the league lead­ers. One of the most un­usual Premier games was the match be­tween Yat­ton Keynell A and Bath In­vaders A. Five of the six play­ers in­volved were play­ing up a level for their A teams and the In­vaders, who claimed vic­tory by 30 points to nine, fielded a team made up en­tirely from their B team. Ni­cholas Branch, David Busari and Matthew Cur­rant picked up three wins each and se­cured the dou­bles in three straight sets. In Di­vi­sion One Rad­stock A are un­beaten and just three points off top spot. They hosted their B team and were made to fight for their 25-15 win. Phil Ware se­cured a max­i­mum along­side braces for Keren Mil­lard and Chris Ben­nett. Mark Ben­nett replied with a brace of his own for the B team but Wayne But­ton and David Gam­lin could only run their A team coun­ter­parts close in five sets in a few games. Bit­ton over­came a de­pleted Old­field D team 27-6, with the away team hav­ing to play up Colin Dowd­ing. Chris Toft and Fred Martin scored three wins each whilst Julie Tay­lor picked up Old­field’s only win of the night. Bath­eas­ton A played their B team away and came away with an im­pres­sive 30-3 win to take a early lead in the Di­vi­sion Two table. Nigel Ped­ley, Peter Smith and Gary Sar­tain scored max­i­mums whilst Mel Henry earned two points for the B team. May­field haven’t found Di­vi­sion Two easy this sea­son af­ter com­ing down, but they have a draw to their name now af­ter play­ing out a 17-17 con­test away at Bath­ford D. Glen Avery and Greg Row­land landed braces for the home side and won the dou­bles. Regi­nald Mor­ris and league new­comer, An­drew Cobb, scored braces for May­field, sup­ported by Stephen Tan­ner.
