Dickie Moore Cup report submitted by  Edna Fletcher on 07/09/14

The season opened with the “Dickie Moore Cup” which was held at the Great Yarmouth Conservative Club. Players were drawn into four groups and in this first competition, play was of a high standard.

Group “A” had Lewis Carby take top place followed by Martyn Clarke.

Matt Currant topped Group “B” but not before losing a point to Darren Smith and Mike Woolston- Ray Lee played his usual steady game to take the runners-up spot.

Martin Pigott played great table tennis to top his group with ten points losing one point to Paul Wright Jnr and one to Andrew Knell. Trevor Johnson had a good game against Paul losing the last game at deuce- Paul was the Runner-up.

Group “D” saw the return to the Yarmouth League competition of Sean Molloy and as expected he won the group. Kian Burgess and Josh Baker tied for the second place and in a play-off Josh went forward.

Q.Final   Sean     beat Martyn Clarke  2 – 0

                Matt      beat Paul               2 – 1

               Josh      beat Lewis              2 – 1

               Martin P beat Ray                2 – 0

 The first semi-final saw Sean play Matt and the young player immediately went on the attack but was worn down by Sean and lost 3 – 0. Josh lost the first game to Martin P but fought back to take the second but he could not maintain the momentum and Martin was victorious in the next two. 

Martin then met Sean in the Final and the many spectators enjoyed a good match as Martin made Sean fight for every point and forced some great rallies- but the experience of Sean told and he took the title 11 – 7 / 11 – 7 / 11 – 9. 

Thanks to all the umpires for helping the tournament run smoothly and on time- and to all the players who entered making this first tournament so very enjoyable. 

The League Cup competition has commenced and will continue through until the S F and Finals on Oct 14th and 16th. Send results of these to Tournament Officer please.

Table Tennis England's statement about the new plastic balls. Click on the following link:: Plastic Ball Statement

For this coming season GYDTTL are able to use the original cellulose balls but the following season (2015/16) we will have to use the new plastic balls. It is therefore best for players to buy just enough balls for this coming season.
