Allen keeps up the family tradition

It was a different Denyer who hit the headlines this week with Allen Denyer producing the outstanding performance in Division Three of the Clacton and District Table Tennis League.

The Brotherhood I skipper took an excellent hat-trick as his side defeated Windsor Swallows 6-4, Denyer taking the scalps of Angela Barratt, Malcolm Caley and Iris Howlett, and sharing a crucial doubles victory with James Smith-Daye.

The result puts Brotherhood I top of the table alongside club-mates Brotherhood J, 7-3 winners over Nomads Pumas, Tom Burton and Kelvin Olano staying unbeaten although Olano was pushed hard by Alan Dockerill before winning 10-12, 8-11, 11-7, 12-10, 11-9.

There was a maximum for Pete Miller of Nomads Wildcats against Brotherhood K, but two each from Brian Baines, Rob Bright and Pete Bloomfield gave Brotherhood the 7-3 win.

No-one stayed unbeaten but every player picked up a point in the draw between Brotherhood M and Nomads Leopards, Nomads’ Roger McNaughton losing to Vicky Edwards and then 16-14 in the fifth to Gracie Edwards but unexpectedly defeating Cris Edwards

Walton B’s Graham Buxton enjoyed success over Martyn Green but otherwise it was full steam ahead for Brotherhood A who emerged comfortable 9-1 winners and now head the early-season table.

Walton A took advantage of an off-night from club-mates Walton B and inflicted a 10-0 defeat, Colin Dearman’s 11-7 in the fifth win over Jason Gale the only match that went the distance.
