Sibsey B’s Richard Hill had a night to remember when he won two games against Graves Park A in Division One of the Boston and District Table Tennis League.

Although his side lost 7-3, he beat Frazer Stone and Phil Brooks while taking Nick Langley to three deuce ends.

Wayne Grooby beat Frazer in four sets but Fred Calvert, substituting from Division Two, was unable to add to Sibsey’s tally.

Penmaen continued their inexorable rise to the title with a 13th consecutive victory, beating Wrangle A 9-1.

Brian Hill and Alan Ashberry were untroubled, winning their three while Pete Evans provided the shock of the evening with a magnificent four-set win over Derek Wood.

Graves Park C cemented their third place in the division with an 8-2 victory over fourth-placed Stickney.

With only two players, this was always going to be a stern task, but Gavin Herberts was in fine form, beating Martin Walters and Graham Walters.

James Quinton, however, restored the Park’s fortunes, dropping just one set, against Vince Lozynsky.

Graves Park B went down 0-10 to second-placed Lodgers G.

Tim Day, Gary Hill and Kelvin Clements were, at times, pushed by Dave Graham, Mick Maltby and Mike Freeston, but they won all their matches.
