The senior A Team captained by Mark Turner are in a good position so far after 8 games having won 3 lost 3 drawn 2 and, for a change at this point in the season, are well clear of the drop zone. Craig Preece is playing particularly well and an important hat trick from the captain against MESC A recently gave Penkhull all three points away.
The B team playing in Division 1 have started really well and are on course to bounce back to the Prem despite a minor setback, losing to Bradwell D who top the league by 2 points. Phil Barnish has settled the team and has got the consistency flowing. Penkhull C on the other hand are missing their regular Mario Toth and are currently 2nd bottom but it is very tight indeed with several teams above them on the same points or just only a win away. This will be a close battle for the team in the 2nd half I feel.
The D Team playing in Division 2 is mid table – players are winning games but not able to win as many of the close matches as they would like. The blend of juniors and new members is helping to form a strong base for this team which I’m sure will pick up some good results in the 2nd half of the season.
Keep it up all players/teams. Good work, stay positive and enjoy your table tennis (even you too Rob!!!)
