Scott Prime, the former ‘Golden Boy’ of Birmingham table tennis, made a sensational return to league play in the city. The attacking top-spinner swept aside Les Minott, Parijat De and Bhavesh Amhlani in emphatic style in a 10-0 mauling of outclassed Bournville A by Smiths Wood A. Pat Glynn and Alan Caffery were also unstoppable for Smiths who are showing real Premier Division title potential. Ryan Fellows of Hamstead B was another player in superb form, despite his side losing 6-4 against their A team. His wins included former Birmingham and Warwickshire champion Radek Mlynarczyk among his victims, plus the talented duo of Steve Robinson and Paul Worrallo. Mlynarczyk also suffered a shock defeat to Raj Singh, but the A team scraped a win with Robinson and Worrallo winning two singles each. Rob Rowson continued his excellent form for Beaufort Sports A in a 7-3 win at Sutton Coldfield A with another maximum. Jon Ludlow was also a max man for Sports with the pair combining for a crucial doubles win.
The Beaufort Sports B duo of Jody Bevington and Michael Bree continue to take the step up from Division One in their stride. They were both unbeaten as Sports edged the Colebridge Braves trio of Amit Ubhi, Mike Credland and Martin George by a 6-4 margin.
Pen-holder Andy Choi gained a treble for Sutton Coldfield C in Division One as they surprised their B team 7-3. Andy Calloway picked up two singles in support of Choi, with Purdip Shoker doing likewise for the B side.
Streetly D pipped Colebridge Knaves 6-4 in Division Three thanks to excellent displays from Graham Fleet and Dave Collins.
