GUILDFORD TABLE TENNIS LEAGUE PRESS REPORT WEEK 24

The Premier Division saw two 100% records disappear, both members of Champions in waiting Godalming A, firstly when Ross Saxby reversed the Men’s Singles Final result against Federico Viterbo at deuce in the fifth  in a recent League encounter and when John Robinson, for Merrow, beat Adam Laws, again in a hard fought five setter. In this particular match Godalming fielded a reserve, young gun Jamie Nordin, who showed his seniors how it is done   taking all three in a great display of the modern game! Final result 8-2.

A piece of news from the Business scene; Premier Ace Jason Tendler was a member of the Barclays team which finished runners, up just recently, in the National Corporate Table Tennis Team Competition. 

Cody B consolidated their position at the top of Division Four with a 9-1 result over Godalming R. They were assisted in the bid for the championship by third placed Bramley E who held second team Woking B to a draw with many fine close games and a late finish. In this one David Barraclough got back to winning ways with all three plus the doubles.

An interesting encounter took place in Division Two where table toppers Godalming E beat their G side, in second place,  7-3 to virtually seal the champions spot for them with an 18 point lead. Danny McGranaghan was the ‘Main Man’ taking his three in fine style .He was ably backed by team mates Jason Minoo and Adit Gandhi with  pairs whilst Chris King replied with two. The scrap for the other promotion spot now hots up with no more  than ten points covering six teams.

The Guildford Junior League entered its second phase and ‘Spin Wizards’ raced to the top of the table with a 4-1 result over EVO. Max Flint retained his unbeaten record in this one. Team Vincent made their first appearance against J2 with an impressive 4-1 victory. Vincent Quiambao starred in this one whilst James Scott prevented the white wash!
