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.

14 year old Josh Harland became the youngest player for many years to dominate the Middlesbrough League Table Tennis Championships which took place at the Ormesby Club on Sunday, winning a total of 5 titles.
To win the Senior titles as well as the Junior, Harland, who plays for Ormesby and lives in Redcar, demonstrated a great deal of improvement in his play over the last few months and if this progress continues, has the possibility of being a top player in the future.
The main event, the Open Singles, was won by Harland by defeating the holder, Martin Rutter, by 3 games to 1 in the semi final and another Ormesby player, Dave Ashwell, in straight games in the final.
Harland scored his second victory over Rutter in the Division 1 Singles. This time the match went to 5 sets. Rutter led by 2 games to 1 after winning the third at 11-9. Harland took command in the final two games to win at 11-8 and 11-7. Harland joined with Rutter to win the doubles, winning a 4 set final against Peter Wilkinson and Michael Young.
Harland’s other two victories came in the Junior (Under 18) Singles where he beat Calum White in straight games in the final and the Cadet (Under 15) Singles where Michael Jones reached the final, only to be beaten in 3 straight games.
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. Young came into his own in the Handicap Singles where he scored a very narrow victory over Ryan Nassau by 21-19 in the third and deciding game.
The Division 2 winner was Bruce Lowther of Travel Hub who beat Michael Jones in 3 straight games in the final. Kieran Wardell won an epic Under 12 title, beating his Ormesby team mate James Dale. Wardell won the first 2 games comfortably but Dale won the next 2 with Wardell taking the decider by the narrowest margin of 15-13.
The Wheelchair Singles was won by Brian Hollaway who beat Noel Thomas in the final whilst the Hardbat Singles competition, played with bats that were popular in decades past, was won by Young who had a very narrow victory over Rutter by 31-30.
