17th MARCH 2015 MATCH REPORT

In Division One of the Eastern Valley Table Tennis League there was one match completed from last week between Cwmbran Colts and Cwmbran Aztecs which the Colts won 20 - 17. On paper the result looked unexpected, but, the Colts were able to field their number one Lee Thomas and call upon a substitute Ray Goulding to strengthen their side. The highlight of the match was Tony Collins inflicting a first defeat of the season over Lee Thomas by 3 - 1.

In this weeks matches in Division One Bristol Nomads all but clinched the title despite losing 12 - 21 to Cwmbran Aztecs. Cwmbran Blues have a game in hand but only have a mathematical chance of catching the Nomads.

After their fine win last week Cwmbran Colts came back down to earth when losing 8 - 26 to YMCA with Ray Goulding and Paul Booth both winning their 3 matches.

Before this weeks matches in Division Two the favourites for the title were Cwmbran Dynamos as they had a game in hand over their rivals. However, they only had 2 players for their match against Cwmbran Devils and although they still managed to win 16 - 14 it was less than the expected result.

The Dynamos result left the door open for Cwmbran Panthers to make their challenge for the title in their match against a weakened Cwmbran Eccentrics, which they won 25 - 5. This means the Panthers are 14 points ahead of the Dynamos with 2 games to play, but, the Dynamos have 3 games to play including a probable title decider against the Panthers next week.

The third placed team Blaenavon Aces also had an outside chance of challenging for the title, but, they fielded a weakened team to lose 19 - 14 to Cwmbran Fellows. However they could have a say in who wins the title as they have a match against the Dynamos in 2 weeks time.
