Kerry Smith and John Marrow beat Mike Nobes and Charley Hammond to clinch match for Savages
HEACHAM TABLE TENNIS LEAGUE By Malcolm Diggins
Ian Rix’s maximum gave his Sedgeford Savages team a close 6-4 win over Adrian’s Oldstars.
The Savages were always in front and after all the singles they were leading 5-4 with just the doubles to play.
Kerry Smith and John Marrow beat Mike Nobes and Charley Hammond to clinch the match for the Savages.
Mark Hipkin, Paul Humeniuk and Richard Hendricks were in action for Ringstead Raiders against BT Victory’s Mary-Ann Woodhouse, Steve Hales and Mary-Ann’s son George.
Great experience for young George and, although he did not manage to get on the scorecard, he came away on the winning side as both Mary-Ann and Hales went unbeaten in their 6-4 win.
Spivs’ Stephen and Aaron Jackson and Chris Griggs really found visiting Hunnys Heroes just too hot to handle.
With young Alfie Yarrow not feeling 100 per cent it was older brother Tom who played alongside Dad Rob and Graham Keeley.
This was the side that won the league the last two seasons and with a 10-0 win under their belts it just showed why they have been at the top for the last two years.
Sedgeford Stars had regulars Mike and Dan Witley joined by super sub Benji Richardson.
Their opponents Vips had Kim Mann joined by two super subs Eileen Needham and Vaughan Parker.
It was the Stars who came out on top with all three players getting two singles wins to their names, plus Dan Witley and Richardson adding the doubles, with a win over Needham and Mann.
However the star of the night was Parker who finished up with another maximum; and he now heads the averages on 100 per cent.
