MIDDLESBROUGH & DISTRICT TABLE TENNIS LEAGUE
2020 – 2021
It was very sad to hear that Bernie Welford had died after a long illness. Although Bernie had not played for quite a while he still took great pleasure in running and watching his Nunthorpe team play in the Middlesbrough Table Tennis League.
Bernie, who grew up in Loftus, had played table tennis for many years since he was young. Having a very unorthodox style, and being left handed, and using only one side of his bat, due to his unusual pen like grip, it made it very difficult for his opponents to predict where the ball was going.
Bernie played and organised the British Steel Corporation Skinningrove table tennis team, who played at the St Johns Ambulance Training Centre in Carlin How until it closed down in 2000.
Bernie and his team mates were invited to play for the Nunthorpe Table Tennis Club in the 2001-2002 season and he continued to run a team for the Nunthorpe club until the Lockdown in March 2020.
Apart from table tennis Bernie had three other passions. Rabbits which he both bred and showed. Country music, spending two evenings each week in Guisborough at the Quoit Club and Stokesley at the Ranch House. Bernie’s third love was Middlesbrough Football Club. If the ‘Boro’ were playing on a match night Bernie could be seen with his earphones in listening to the match.
Bernie was a lovely man and he will be missed by all the players and his friends in the Middlesbrough TT League.
Following the Governments announcement in the press conference last night regarding social contact, the Senior Officers of the League have been in discussion and have decided to cancel the Leagues fixture programme for the rest of this season.
The Middlesbrough League has been operating since 1933 and as far as I am aware, other than the war years, this is the first time the League has not been able to complete the fixture programme, but nevertheless under these circumstances I do not think we have any option.
Dependant on the circumstances prevailing at the time, which would be around mid-May, the Officials of the Cleveland & District Summer League will review the situation to make an assessment to see whether it is practical to run the League during the Summer, but it is too early to make any decisions with regard to the Summer programme at this point in time.
I deeply regret that we have had to make a decision of this kind, but I am sure that all members will appreciate that there is little alternative.
Many thanks for your assistance.

MATCH REPORTS FOR WEEKENDING 29 APRIL 2016
Three players from the Division One Winners – Beaumont Accountancy Nomads A team
left to right: Steve Cooper, Anthony Phoenix and Mark Walpole
East Cleveland’s B team’s chances of winning Division 2 of the Middlesbrough & District Table Tennis League received a boost last week when their main rivals, Nunthorpe B, dropped 2 points to Beaumont Accountancy Nomads D.
For Nunthorpe, both Barbara Keaney and Bernie Welford scored hat tricks, but Jane Lynas for Nomads defeated Chris Gunn at 11-6 in the decider after being 2-1 down. Then Lynas combined with Bruce Lowther to win the doubles.
Both East Cleveland and Nunthorpe have one match remaining and the leaders have a 3 point advantage going into the final fixtures. In the last week Nunthorpe entertain Ormesby G who are mid-table, whilst East Cleveland visit another mid-table team, Ormesby H.
The Championship of this Division will go to the wire but East Cleveland, with the 3 points advantage, clearly have the best chance of taking this year’s title.

The Veteran Singles (Over 40) was a hard fought event which was won by Peter Wilkinson. In the final group Wilkinson defeated Michael Young and Dave Ashwell.
