NATIONAL JUNIOR LEAGUE (2015/2016) LONDON NORTH

REPORT ON DAY 4 OF COMPETITION PLAYED ON SATURDAY 27th FEBRUARY 2016 AT ELLENBOROUGH TABLE TENNIS CLUB, ENFIELD, MIDDLESEX.

Division 1.

At the start of the day Graham Spicer led the field just 1 point ahead of Chelmsford A, Ellenborough A and Fusion 1. The expectation was that Graham Spicer having already beaten all three of the chasing pack would rapidly move ahead with a really tight scrap taking place behind them for the runner-up spot but as so often happens fate took a hand with both Chelmsford A and Fusion 1 missing two of their first team players. In the case of Fusion 1 they had lost the Kelani brothers to JBL duties and had to move two of their second team players up to support the first team and abandoning their second team matches for the day. The question now was whether Ellenborough A could keep up with Graham Spicer.

In the first round of the day Ellenborough A beat Chelmsford A by 7-2 while  Graham Spicer beat Warren Spring A by 8-1 increasing their lead over Ellenborough A to 2 points. Fusion 1 beat Barnet by 6-3 to fall 1 point behind Ellenborough A. Meanwhile Mossford 1 were gifted 9 points by the absent Fusion 2 and were now only 1 point behind Chelmsford A. In the second round Fusion 1 also beat Chelmsford A by 7-2 but Ellenborough A beat Barnet by 8-1 to total 38 points and go 2 points up on Fusion 1. It was Graham Spicer's turn to benefit from the 9 points from Fusion 2 and this put them 3 points ahead of Ellenborough A. Meanwhile Mossford 1 had beaten Warren Spring A 6-3 to put them 3 points in front of Chelmsford A.

Ellenborough A didn't give up and in the last round scored a fine 9-0 victory over Fusion 1 finishing on 47 points. This was still not good enough as Graham Spicer completed their programme undefeated winning 8-1 against Mossford 1 to give them a total of 49 points just 2 points more than Ellenborough A. In the end the crucial match was their 5-4 victory over Ellenborough A on day 3. Fusion 1 ended on 36 points to take third while Chelmsford A's 5-4 victory over Barnet in their last match gave them 32 points just 1 point ahead of Mossford 1 in fifth. They were followed by Warren Spring A and Barnet on 24 points and Fusion 2 on 8 points.

Fraser Donnelly of Ellenborough A topped the averages with just one loss on 96% followed by Daniel Berry of Chelmsford A on 92%, Abdul Kelani of Fusion 1 on 86% and Jaycee Chan of Ellenborough A and Asa Gauntlett of Graham Spicer both on 83%.

Division 2.

The table at the start of the day was deceptive as the third and fourth placed teams, though 6 and 8 points behind the leader Mossford 2, had a game in hand and this was about to unravel during the day. Ellenborough were still having problems filling their teams and both the B and C teams started the day with only two players. In the first round BATTS B who were in second place had no match while Ellenborough B had to play the leaders Mossford 2. Ray and Sophie managed to win all their matches giving the Ellenborough team a 6-3 victory over Mossford 2 which reduced their deficit to just 3 points and  BATTS A scored an excellent 9-0 victory over Chelmsford B  which took their total to 28 points and into second place only 2 points behind the leaders Mossford 2. Warren Spring B scored their first victory beating Ellenborough C by 9-0.

In the second round of the day it was now Mossford 2's turn to sit out while Ellenborough B now took on BATTS B. The two Ellenborough players again won all their matches giving them their second 6-3 victory to put them 3 points ahead of Mossford 2, but BATTS A did even better, beating Ellenborough C by 9-0 to take a 4 point lead over Ellenborough B at the top of the table. Chelmsford B gained their only victory of the day by beating Warren Spring B 5-4 to consolidate fifth place.

Mossford 2 were not giving up. In the last round they beat Chelmsford B by 9-0 to set a target of 39 points. Ellenborough B at last managed to field a full team for their last match against BATTS A. By the end of the eighth set Ellenborough B were leading 6-2 and both teams were also on 39 points. All depended on the last set which Ellenborough's Ray Yan managed to win giving them victory by 7-2 which made them the division 2 winners by 1 point over BATTS A and Mossford 2. The runner-up position was decided by count back to the match between BATTS A and Mossford 2 which was won by BATTS A by 5 games to 4 on day 3. An exciting end to the competition.
Many players were still on 100% at the end of play including Asa Gauntlett and Oscar Owen of Graham Spicer, Ray Yan, Sophie Chiang and Dylan Franks of Ellenborough B and Connor Payne of Chelmsford B
