Tough end of season

JOSH Croft was player of the night in the final fixtures of the Gainsborough and District Table Tennis Summer League, which served up some tough encounters.

Croft, in the handicap singles, took his chances to defeat some very experienced players and book himself a place in the final where he will meet Trevor Howdle.

Trevor has just restarted his playing career after two years’ absence and several medical operations on his hands, but he is now proving he means business.

The two will also play against each other in the consolation singles final.

The individual semi-finals are yet to be contested and they feature the top four seeds of Gary Adlington v John Mackey and Dave Mason v Mark Ayris.

These semi-finals along with the doubles event and all finals will take place tonight (Thursday) at the Liberal Club on Ropery Road.
