THEY say that winning becomes a habit, and DTH Redlands Allsorts star Tom McIntosh has certainly got into some very good habits.

Yet another hat-trick from McIntosh not only set the Allsorts team on their way to a comfortable win against DTH Redlands Dynamos but also put them back on top of Division Three, albeit temporarily as Stanley Streets’ 9-1 win over Ryton Park Cougars two days later knocked them back down to second place again.
McIntosh was well supported by Neil Houghton who also won all his three games with Lewis Comley adding two more.
Kash Tutter got the only win of the night for the Dynamos.

THE Worksop and District Table Tennis League are sad to announce the death of one our players.
Tommy Dove who played with Stanley Street A passed away suddenly this morning.
Although this was only Tommy’s third season in our league he had made many new friends in Worksop in a short space of time and was very well liked by all players he came up against.
Tommy also played in the Mansfield and District League. Our thoughts are with all of his family and close friends at this very difficult time – Tommy will be greatly missed.
