This week in the Guildford Table Tennis League in Division three the selected match involved  the Evergreen Margret Thornton  and  Brian Lunn-nice  to see you back Brain! - for Ash B, with the equally experienced Alan Sherwin, John Setterfield and Dave Thomas for Aftermath E- the five veterans having countless playing  hours between them  over the years-Truly a credit to this League. The result was a 6-4 win for Ash with no less than six  games going the distance, a late evening indeed! Ken Lemon and Chris Ray starred for Challoner C with trios in a 7-3 victory over Godalming L,  Match of the evening was a five set  classic in which Louise Newman edged out Alan  Cumper, the  match score -10,9,-10,12,-9.

The battle for the Fourth Division title is hotting up as the College Hill F team of Rick Clement, Richard Abbey and Sue Bowman took ten points out of Godalming go second behind favourites Cody B. Bramley E and Woking B are also in the mix!

Division Two saw League Secretary Carole Ingram scoring an impressive maximum, with the doubles, for Merrow F in an 8-2  success against Bramley D. A feature of this match was the return, for Bramley, of Kerry East the 1978 Guildford Women’s Singles Champion after a three years lay off. A bit rusty she managed a single point but should soon get back to her old form. The three Bramley sides are not faring well in this Division filling three of the last four positions-things can only get better!

The Bramley A side did better in the First Division with an 8-2 trampling of Godalming D to go second in the table with Peter Palmer putting in a virtuoso performance. Young Charlie Cunningham took the two  consolation points for Godalming.

Godalming A opened up a 15 point advantage over their nearest rivals in the Premier with a 10-0 win over Merrow A although Jason Tendler was desperately unlucky in losing two singles in five including  a deuce in the fifth against Adam Laws. Merrow C  eased their relegation problems with a 9-1 result over fellow strugglers Challoner B. Micky Lang and Dan Barna were unbeaten
