Nuneaton & District table Tennis League

At the seasonal break, Ambleside E have maintained their lead in Division 1, but the gap between them and the chasing teams has got closer, with only a 2 point lead over their closest rivals NALGO Mira 1. Ambleside had two 6-4 wins against Wolvey D, who had Mick Allsopp playing for them, but despite a maximum by him, it still wasn’t enough to stave off a defeat. The other 6-4 win was against Crescent who are still looking for their first win at the bottom of the table. Neil Matthams of Ambleside helped himself to a maximum to keep Ambleside at the top over the Christmas break.

NALGO have recovered from their 10-0 mauling by the leaders, and jumped from 4th to 2nd with two good 9-1 wins against Crescent and Ambleside H, with Pete Jamieson making a maximum in each of the matches. There is only 1 point separating NALGO and the 3rd placed team Ajax Wolvey C, who also beat Ambleside H by a 9-1 margin, but then had a close match against Stockingford C beating them 6-4 with Paul Calloway making a maximum in both matches, and he and William Panes combined in the final doubles to take the match.

Stockingford C follow Wolvey in 4th place with a 9 points deficit, but because of a cancelled match in the run up to Christmas they do have a match in hand, so they are still vying for the top spot together with the 3 teams above them.

In 5th spot is Ajax Wolvey D with 33 points as have Stockingford B in 6th but Wolvey have a greater number of wins. Wolvey D finished the their two final matches of 2015 with two losses – one against the leaders as reported above, and the other against Stockingford B below them, losing with a weakened team  8-2, and Bob Whittaker making a maximum for Stockingford. They also have a match in hand of the other teams in the league. Ambleside H are in 7th spot dropping following their two 9-1 defeats and Crescent continue in the bottom spot still looking for their first win of the season.

In Division 2 NALGO Mira 2 continue in the top spot, and having beaten Ambleside C 8-2 with Pete White making a maximum, they went into their final match of 2015 against Fire Brigade hoping to maintain their unbeaten run, but were soundly beaten 7-3, with Steve Leonard and Gareth Edmunds both making a maximum then combining in the doubles to complete the win. NALGO have maintained their lead at the top over their closest rivals Stockingford A on 52 points, but the gap is down to just 3 points, and Stockingford finished their 2015 campaign with a 10-0 whitewash over Ajax Wolvey B. The top two teams meet in the first week’s fixtures in the New Year, and that match could well decide the eventual league winner at the end of the season.

In 3rd place is Ajax Wolvey B 5 points behind Stockingford on 44 points, and they followed their loss to Stockingford with a 9-1 win over Ambleside R, with Steve Hobley and Graham Bolstridge weighing in with a maximum each. The three teams at the top of the league are now forming their own break away group as the 4th placed team, Fire Brigade have 29 points. They had two 7-3 wins to finish 2015, one against the league leaders as reported earlier, and the same score against Ambleside A. How they must be rueing playing short earlier in the season, as they could have been fighting for the top spot. Just below them come Ambleside A one point behind, with two other Ambleside teams following in 6th and 7th spot, being their C and R team respectively, but Ambleside C have a match in hand so do have the chance of catching the teams above them. Ambleside R remain in the bottom spot and are still looking for their first win of the season.

In Division 3 Stockingford D continue to extend their lead at the top of the league, and the real fight is now for the runner up spot, and Stockingford rounded off 2015 with a 10-0 win over Ajax Wolvey F. Ajax Wolvey G and Ambleside G are in 2nd and 3rd spots respectively, but on 35 points apiece, but Wolvey being in 2nd place due to more wins than Ambleside. Wolvey finished the year with a loss of 6-4 against Ambleside D, where Jonathan Peace made a maximum for Ambleside. This match could have gone either way, and was closely contested with 6 of the sets going to 4 games, and the others all being close 5 game sets. Jonathan Peace and Ben Bennett eventually joining in the doubles to take the match, which eventually finished close on 11.30pm!

Ambleside G finished 2015 with two 5-5 draws, one against Griff & Coton with Manny Patel making a maximum, and then against Weddington with Jamie Watson taking the man of the match title with a maximum. Weddington are having a much improved second season in the league and they are only 1 point behind Ambleside G in 4th place.  Close behind them and with a match in hand is Ajax Wolvey F who finished the year with the 10-0 loss to the league leaders. Ambleside D are in 6th place, and they followed up their good win against Wolvey G with a 5-5 draw with Griff & Coton who are the team below them at the bottom of the league. Griff’s results are also improving in their second year in the league, and Phil Davies made a maximum for them against Ambleside D, and also notched a couple of wins in their draw against Ambleside G. They still are looking for their first win but it can’t be long coming now.
