Table Tennis: Amotherby ‘B’ in raid on ‘A’ ranks
2:42pm Wednesday 16th October 2013 in Sport
THE withdrawal of reigning division one champions Amotherby ‘A’ paid immediate dividends for the club’s ‘B’ team in the Ryedale League.
The ‘A’ team have folded due to a lack of players, and the ‘B’ ranks recruited Tom Needham, who helped them to a 7-3 victory over Ryedale Sports Club ‘B’.
Ryedale were missing Dave Burnham to injury so old stager Tony Kemp stepped in. Despite playing some entertaining spin shots, he was unable to win a set.
Andy Seed’s surprise 3-0 win over Mike Fenby owed much to a ludicrous amount of luck, while Peter Fambely served his way to two wins for Amotherby. Mike Wheatly and Fenby took one each and the doubles to earn a deserved point.
Ryedale ‘E’ lead division two having dropped only three games in their first three matches.
Newcomers Amotherby ‘D’ and Helmsley ‘B’ have endured mixed fortunes so far, finding it much tougher in the higher division.
Helmsley ‘B’ are still looking to register their first point of the season after the first two games.
Ryedale ‘H’ head division three with a 100 per cent record from their first three games.
Ryedale Laundry are second with a game in hand after making it two out of two with an 8-2 defeat of Westow.
The match included some close games, with veteran George Davison returning to the fold and defeating Colin Payne in his third match in a close encounter.
Ryedale ‘G’ had a convincing win over Amotherby ‘E’ and may give the top two a run for their money.
