Portishead Sharks have completed a Weston-super-Mare table tennis league and cup double.
The team of Jake Tucker, Jack Jenkins and Ray Jenkins held off a strong challenge from the N&B Panthers to clinch the Archdale Cup – the Weston-super-Mare League’s premier handicap tournament.
The Sharks, which also included Derek Connop and enjoyed back-up performances from Maria Hayes, Zoltan Gal and Milan Gal, had earlier in the month clinched the Division 1 title.
Portishead general secretary, Steve Knight, said: “This was a fantastic performance from everyone involved. The Sharks dedicated their season to team-mate Deon Riley, who sadly passed away last summer while playing for the club. It was a magnificent tribute to him.”
The success comes just weeks after Portishead was named as Table Tennis England’s Club of the Year.
