Brian Hill has tasted yet more table tennis success.

The 70-year-old has returned from the Veteran English Table Tennis Society’s Eastern Masters competition with three more trophies to add to his collection.

Despite playing through the pain barrier in Norwich due to an ongoing injury, Brian won the over 70 men’s singles, beating Tony Brown in the final.

He also reached the final of the over 60s men’s singles before missing out on the top prize against Phil Cawser.

Brian then teamed up with regular partner Roy Norton to reach the final of the over 70 men’s doubles.

There they claimed the second-placed prize after being defeated by Michael Meredith and Tony Brown.

It has been a good year for Brian (pictured), who scooped first-place trophies in the over 70 men’s singles and doubles, again with Roy, at the North Eastern Masters in Sunderland in September.

He also won silver at the Stag 2014 World Table Tennis Championships in Auckland, New Zealand, earlier in the year.
