Chargers V Comets

The club derby wasn’t as close as some were hoping for, but it was played in a terrific atmosphere. The Comets who will be vying for promotion had regulars Colin Pritchard, and Nikki Irwin joined by their new signing from Desperadoes Matt Greenwood. Chargers had “Stonewall” Peter Whitfield with the attacking Dennis Jennings and talented junior Jack Pugh who is really going to make a name for himself in table tennis in the near future. Nikki using her explosive backhand beat Dennis over 5 ends, and Jack over 3, while Matt with his solid defensive style beat both Jack and Dennis in 3 ends. Colin beat Jack but had an end taken off him by Dennis. Peter for Chargers playing his solid defensive game wore all three opponents down over a number of ends and won all three singles but with Dennis couldn’t beat Colin and Matt in the doubles. Final Score 7-3 to Comets.

Cramlington Magpies v Desperadoes

A tough fixture for Desperadoes with Cramlington playing some of their up and coming youngsters in Tim Bryce, Andrew Matfin and Sree Kamakala. Desperadoes had Captain John Reid with Michael Lishman and debutant to the Summer league Paul Salkeld. Only two game were three enders which showed the competitiveness of the match but when the youngsters stepped up the pace the Desperadoes struggled to cope. The only success was Paul Salkeld beating Sree, but Desperadoes were very close in the doubles and a number of the singles. Result 9-1 to Magpies

Aces v Springwell            

Aces are certainly struggling in the first division especially without their unbeaten player from last year Waldemar Dzwonkowski. The usual regulars of Duncan Fraser Ian McAllister and Jon Mawson were up against a very good team of John Williamson, Dave Fosberg and Tony Gelder. Springwell took the game by the scruff of the neck and were only held back by a win for Jon Mawson and Ian McAllister giving them an 8-2 victory which takes them to the top of the first division.
