Hartlepool’s Westbourne A improved their chances of clinching third position in the Cleveland & District Summer Table Tennis League Division One last week when they defeated Ormesby C by 8-2.
Keith Robertson was the star of the Westbourne A team scoring a hat trick winning all of his three sets in straight games. Ormesby David Noutch produced a surprise win against Jimmy Scope at 11-9 in the decider whilst Chrissy Edwards did well to beat Tony Leonard. Tony Leonard and Jimmy Scope won two each for Westbourne.
Ormesby C produced a good result earlier in the week when they defeated Northfield A by 8-2. Nigel Savage produced the best results for Ormesby C scoring a hat trick whilst Luke Robinson and Ben Savage won two each.
Tom Webster produced the best performance for Northfield A winning two of his sets and coming close to winning the third when he was defeated by Nigel Savage at 11-9 in the decider. This match was closer than the score line suggests as Ormesby won four of their eight sets narrowly in the deciding game.
This defeat had an adverse effect on Northfield A’s hopes of finishing in third place in the competition.
