Allan Nicholls celebrated his October Premier League player of the year award with a maximum for Exiles in their win over Wisbech Hawks.

TABLE TENNIS: Pegg Scaffolding are keeping the pressure on at the top of the IBA King’s Lynn League.

They sit joint top with Ziggys on 63 points.

Peggs entertained basement boys Ambit Projects and, with Wayne Mason, Dale Parnell and Peter Pegg all boasting maximums, it brought a handy 9-1 win.

The Ambits pairing of Rob Rix and Jack Mason managed to win the doubles to prevent a whitewash.

Ziggys faced tougher opposition in St James and, although they won the match 6-4, they dropped valuable points in the chase for the title.

Ziggys were led by Gary Hewitt, who won all his games, with good support from Martyn Allen, who scored a brace, and Chad Bassett, who beat Owen Turner.

St James’ points came from Serafim Melo with a brace and Paul Barrett with a good win over Bassett.

The draw specialists from last season are at it again as Exiles played out a tightly contested match with Wisbech Hawks.

Exiles had October’s Premier Division Player of The Month Allan Nicholls in scintillating form, winning all his games and pairing up with Jim Defty in the doubles. Defty also had a win over Graham Sheppard. 

For Hawks, Grant Brightey and Steve Ely both posted a couple of wins each and Sheppard beat Lee Osler.

Avengers entertained Heacham and another tight contest was played, ending with Avengers winning 6-4.

The home team had Keith Phillips in great form with a maximum, including a good win over James Patterson.

Phillips had good support from Richard Mussett and Phil Brown, who both had wins over David Woolley.

Phillips and Mussett also took the doubles.

For Heacham, Patterson and Aaron Howell had two wins apiece over Mussett and Brown respectively.

The last match of the week was between the two Wasps teams. In a one-sided affair, the first team came out on top with a 9-1 win.

Steve Goodale, Mike Crowson and Steve Mason inflicted the damage, although Wasps II gained a consolation point when Paul Reed beat Goodale.

Anyone who thought Runcton Holme were going to walk away with Division One this season may want to think again after Hot Shots flew to the top after a 10-0 whitewash of West Lynn Rangers.

With West Lynn only turning up with two players, it was always going to be an uphill struggle for them and the Hot Shots team of Trevor Mason, Finlay Hewson and David Whitby showed no mercy.

Spin Doctors took on reigning champions Runcton Holme and, although on the wrong end of a 6-4 result, they gave a good account of themselves, 

Peter McDonagh had a brace of wins and Daryl Johnson and Malcolm Powell both had wins over young Robert Osbourne. 

Runcton Holme’s Nick Osbourne is still boasting a 100 per cent record for the season after a fine maximum. He had good back-up from Mel Jupp, who had wins over Johnson and Powell. The away pairing also took the doubles.

The Seasiders look as though they could cause a few upsets this season as they have hit a bit of form.

They had an 8-2 win over Paul’s Driving School with Kerry Smith the star of the show with her first-ever maximum in the league.

Tom Yarrow also had a maximum and Graham Keeley only dropped a game to Ash Starling. Starling also paired up with Adriano Domingo for the doubles.

Nominees in the October Player of the Month Awards for the Premier League were Chuck Hewitt, Wayne Mason and Allan Nicholls, with Nicholls taking the honour.

In Division One, Finlay Hewson lifted the award, ahead of fellow nominees Nick Osbourne, David Whitby and Steve Kent.
