Second-placed Chelmsford B look like they are on their way to promotion to division one of the Chelmsford & District Table Tennis League - along with the division two leaders Writtle Excalibur A.

Newcomer Simon Jarvis scored a hat-trick which included a last gasp 3-11, 11-7, 8-11, 11-6, 11-8 win over Sam Lowman - the best of the Danbury players. Chelmsford B were without Jarvis against Danbury B and they were fortunate that Danbury were a player short otherwise the margin of defeat might have been heavier than 6-4. Glen Laing was undefeated for Danbury. Hatfield Peverel A are third and it is fair to say that if they had had the services of Peter Barrett earlier in the Season they would have been closer to second. Barrett was unbeaten in their 6-4 win over OCs C. Charles Yeung downed the challenge of John Gagg 11-7, 6-11, 7-11, 11-16, 12-10 in the closest game of the night. OCs B did well to beat Chelmsford C 6-4 as they were a player short. Trevor Carter picked up his three singles for the OCs side.

Liberal B won twice to move above Liberal A. Paul Davison was undefeated in their 7-3 win over Liberal A whilst Adam Buxton and Steve Pennell both scored hat-tricks in their 8-2 victory over OCs A. Dan Berry made his mark here for the losers. He beat Simon Webber 14-12, 4-11, 11-9, 12-10.
Maldon B are division three Champions and they won the title in style by beating second-placed Writtle Excalibur B 7-3. Ciaran Whelan and Hamish Innes were both undefeated although Innes had to pull out all the stops to beat Paul Sturton (11-3, 6-11, 11-7, 10-12, 11-9) and Phil Smith (11-4, 10-12, 8-11, 12-10, 12-10). Expect Maldon to be challenging for honours in division two next year as well. Hatfield Peverel B are third and they were the week’s big winners. Neil Freeman, Dave Fiddeman and Guy McKenzie beat Chelmsford D 10-0. No mean feat against a Chelmsford side which included Dave Parker and Gordon Fairchild.

Norman Smith edged out Roger Tiffin 11-4, 11-4, 4-11, 4-11, 11-9 in the least predictable of those encounters.` Danbury G also drew 5-5 with OCs F. And yes - no prizes for guessing that Terry Dowsett won his three singles for the OCs side. The match between Danbury J and OCs E was also drawn. Adam Yardley was unbeaten for the OCs side whilst Kevin Willis edged out Dave Newman 11-4, 8-11, 11-7, 8-11, 12-10 in the closest game of the night. Danbury H were convincing 9-1 winners over Maldon D.

Brian Ellis beat Shirley 11-9, 4-11, 8-11 13-11, 11-9 and Richard Allen defeated Shirley 11-8, 11-6, 3-11, 7-11, 12-10.
