Wensum A maintain their tight grip on Table Tennis Premier title

Wensum A have won the Premier A title in the Grant Matthewson Norwich & District Table Tennis League for the second year running.

With the end of the season fast approaching, Wensum A recorded a conclusive 9-1 victory over fourth-placed Gothic A – even without Lauren Spink.

Jake and Ryan Collins, supported by Tony Zeqiri, took all their singles to show Gothic a clean pair of heels, despite Philip Logsdon putting up a good fight.

In the battle to avoid relegation, Gothic B came good with a 7-3 victory over CEYMS B to move 11 points clear of Briston, who have two games in hand. Alan Clitheroe starred for CEYMS B, taking all his singles.

In Division One, Taverham C's Jack Harrowing recorded a brace against Returners A, as did Jamie Leeder, and the pair teamed up to win the doubles and gain a valuable team draw.

An impressive maximum from Ian Layt and two wins from Andrew Leeds and Stuart Cooper gave Foxwood an 8-2 win over Wensum H, for whom Holly Stubbings won the two. Foxwood C entertained Missionaries, but there were no celebrations to follow, as Missionaries never made it to the winner's enclosure, losing 10-0.

In Division Two, a keenly-contested match between Wensum J and CEYMS F ended in a deserved draw. It took a 3-2 win in the last game of the evening by Will Crater over Paul Brown to secure two points for CEYMS F. Wensum J were helped by a fine maximum from Bill Watts.
