Ed Birt, Ben Roberts and Margaret Pang

Gloucester, Cirencester, Stroud & Cheltenham junior’s battled it out in the final round of this year’s County Junior League at Waterwells today (May 9th)

At the start of the day Gloucester were only one point ahead of Stroud. Play went as expected until Gloucester dropped a game to Cheltenham – points were then equal.

The climax was saved to last as Gloucester played Stroud. The tie was level at 2-2 with the last 3 matches all played at the same time.

Some nail-biting games of quality table tennis then ensued.

First game finished with Ben Glover beating Owen Berry. Gloucester then had to win the 2 other games.

Ben Roberts beat Stan Shilton and Ed Birt beat Ollie Philp.

Great table tennis – with a lot of close games.

Good spirit and co-operation.

It was also nice to see 4 girls playing Margaret, Emily, Anna Maria and Mary on the day.

Well done Gloucester!

This season’s county junior league was fiercely contested and it was pleasing to see the county’s top juniors all competing.

After 4 rounds Gloucester ran out as winners with Stroud second, Cheltenham third and Cirencester fourth. Gloucester’s strength in depth proved to be the decisive factor although they were pushed all the way by Stroud who faltered at the finish when Billy Shilton was unavailable due to International duty. Olly Tyndall was the only boy to achieve 100% record, although it is good to see that every boy who competed recorded at least one victory.

It was disappointing that only Gloucester and Stroud were able to field girls in every round this season and I hope that the other leagues will be able to address this issue before next season.

Thanks go to all the team captains for their help with running this season’s CJL and also to Janie Kirby who assisted me and also ran the final round in my absence. Thanks also to Les Smith for providing the medals.

Please find below the final tables and averages for this season’s County Junior League. Congratulations to Gloucester for retaining their title. The other teams will need to raise their game to wrestle the title away from them next season. Only two players ended the season undefeated – Ben Roberts and Hamza Bham remained unbeaten throughout all 3 rounds.

I would like to thank all the team managers and players for their co-operation and good sportsmanship. There was never an issue with anyone umpiring and the conduct on the table was excellent.

Thanks also to Janie Kirby for assisting me at each of the 3 rounds and to County President Les Smith for presenting the certificates, medals and trophy.

I look forward to an even more competitive league next season.

The third round of the County Junior League took place on Saturday, 23rd February at Deer Park, Cirencester.

Gloucester appear to be in prime position to take the title this year. With one round to go they have a 13 point lead over Stroud who in turn lead Cheltenham by 11 points. Cirencester have broken their duck thanks to Isabelle Cartwright’s win over Mary Pang who deputised for Cheltenham in the absence of their girl player.

The closest match of the day was between Dan Ind and Matt Mycoe. Dan eventually triumphed 13-11, 11-9, 9-11, 8-11, 23-21! All of the Gloucester boys retained their 100% records as did Emily Philp in the girls.

The final round of matches is at Robin Greaves Sports Hall, Waterwells, Quedgeley on Saturday 9th March. Please arrive by 1.45pm for a 2pm start.
