Andy Trott reigned supreme at the Northamptonshire County Closed again as he took the men’s singles title.

Trott beat Steve Silk and Dan Smalley en route to a finals night clash with young defender Sam Wilson.

He took the first 11-9 but was pegged back when Wilson levelled it with an 11-7 game of his own.

But Trott did what he’s done to so many players over the years by pulling away, taking the final two 11-5, 11-7 to retain his title.

There was a shock in the men’s doubles however as Trott and partner Adrian Roper fell at the semi-final stage to Dan Smalley and Matt Horrocks.

The Westfield clubmates won in five nailbiting ends before an inspired performance in the final saw them beat John Fuller and Nigel Metcalfe.

In the women’s singles, Nicole Bird retained her title with a win over Brigitta Palinkas who had earlier knocked out number two seed Jordan Wood.

Bird and Wood also won the women’s doubles.

Bird made it three finals night wins out of three in the mixed doubles with Smalley against the brother and sister pairing of Chris Haynes and Liz Adams.

Trott won the veterans singles title against Vidal Graham and there were wins in the over 50s and 60s respectively for Metcalfe and Fuller.

Sam Wilson ensured he took home some silverware with a comprehensive junior boys win against Shay Graham, and teamed up with Corby youngster Alex Cochrane to take the junior doubles.

Anna Wilson was the junior girls’ winner, beating Evie Elliott in the final.

Shay Graham tasted success in the under 15 boys against Jacob Tattersall and also won in the under 15 doubles.

Jamie Anderson won in the under 13 boys against Nathan Dixon in the final.

Ben Aldridge was the under 11 boys winner, beating Benny Benko in the final.

In the banded events Alex Cochrane took the headlines with wins in both the Band 2 and Band 3 singles.

Shay Graham won the Band 1 while Ian Baldock and David George won the Band 1 doubles.

Andy Trott took the headlines at the Northants Table Tennis County Closed Tournament as he won the men’s singles yet again.

Trott blew the field away, not dropping a single end en route to the title.

In the semi-finals he saw off the pimpled Bulgarian Roumen Stefanov before facing old foe John Fuller, who beat Kevin Bird, in the final.

Trott’s calm and collected topspin proved too much for Fuller’s defence, with the champion winning 11-5, 11-7, 11-9.

The pair had already met in the over 40’s final with Trott also winning in straight games.

Nicole Bird regained her women’s singles crown with a win over doubles partner Jordan Wood in the final.

Earlier on finals night the pair had joined forces to battle past Clare Coles and Sue Moloney in four ends.

Wood also took the mixed doubles crown with Trott after beating the brother and sister duo of Chris Haynes and Liz Adams.

Haynes and Adams had stunned Bird and an out-of-sorts Dan Smalley in the semi-final but found the combination of Trott and Wood a step too far.

It was a good tournament for Haynes who made two appearances on finals night, also reaching the men’s doubles final.

The final was without top seeds Trott and Steve Silk, who crashed out at the first hurdle to Richard Elliott and Brian Wooding.

Haynes and partner Henry Arthur took on Fuller and Nigel Metcalfe but lost out in four ends.

The Corby pair did, however, pick up the over 40 doubles title with a shock win over Trott and Silk.

It was a family affair in the junior boys’ singles as Corby Smash brothers Sam and Adam Wilson faced off for the title.

Sam raced into a 2-1 lead but was forced into a decider before edging home 11-8 in the fifth.

Nicole Bird made it a treble of titles as she won the 18-21 singles, crushing Guy Sparrow in straight games.

John Fuller added to his men’s doubles crown with wins in the over 50 and over 60 singles and the over 60 doubles with David Simmons.

Other veteran’s events went the way of Moloney (over 40 women’s singles) and Silk and Bird (over 50 doubles).

Evie Elliott and Anna Wilson shared junior titles after facing each other in two finals.

Elliott got the better of her counterpart to win the under 18 girls event but Wilson took revenge by winning the under 15 girls.

The pair also won the under 15 girls’ doubles together.

Shay Graham won the under 15 boys’ singles against Daniel Mann, as well as the under 18 boys’ doubles with Ben Tombs.

Graham did however lose out in the under 15 boys’ doubles with Mann to Jacob Tattersall and Manav Pandya.

Other junior titles went to: Anna Wilson (junior banded), Alex Cochrane (under 13 boys), Daria Gulbicka (under 13 girls), Nathan Dixon/Jamie Anderson (under 13 doubles) and Rishan Ganatra (under 11 boys).

Banded event titles were won by: Adam Wilson (band 1), Wood (band 2), Lewis Hillery (band 3), Lauren Ainsworth (band 4) and Kyle Murie/Sparrow (band 1 doubles).
