With an 8-2 victory over Beaumont Nomads C, Nunthorpe A have taken over the lead at the top of Division 1 of the Middlesbrough and District Table Tennis League.
Nunthorpe's win was largely as a result of a hattrick from Dave Williams who's three wins included 11-8 in the decider with victory over Craig Dring. Phil Webster and Nicky Corking both won two each for Nunthorpe. One of the closest matches was the doubles when Webster and Corking recovered from 2-0 down to win the doubles against Dring and Sharples at 11-8 in the decider.
