Ravenscroft Senior British National League Report Weekend 3 2018/19 Season 

Some of the Island’s leading table tennis players have recently returned from a successful weekend of British National League action.

Competing under the guise of sponsor Ravenscroft, the first team enjoyed their most successful outing in the extremely high standard Championship Division and managed to obtain draws in 2 of their 4 matches. 

These results obtained at the Corby Smash Table Tennis centre in Northamptonshire has seen the side treble their points total for the season and it saw all members of the team comprising Joshua Stacey, Lawrence Stacey, Ben Foss and Alex Robinson contribute towards these results.

The Saturday started with a strong 4-4 draw against the side immediately above the Sarnian side, Kingfisher I. Robinson was making his first competitive appearance for Guernsey this season and he was the main man in leading the side towards the point. He started by defeating the 3rd best Cadet Boy in England Jamie Liu in 4 sets and held his nerve very well in the final match to come back from 1-0 down to overcome Krasimir Ivanov in 4 sets. Foss also beat Ivanov in 4 sets and was unlucky to lose out 11-9 in the deciding 5th end to the unorthodox England number 62 Daniel Moses. It was Lawrence Stacey that picked up the other win during his 4 set victory over Liu, 18-16 in the concluding end.
Ryan Bichard impressed, winning 4 of his 8 matches                    

A crushing 7-1 defeat was inflicted by 4th placed side Horsham Blades I in the afternoon fixture. The Blades side had their strongest team this season due to the inclusion of Peter Svenningsen, who is the leading Danish Junior table tennis player. Joshua and Foss were no match for the Dane and each lost comfortably in straight sets. Foss did however earn the solitary win in the encounter when he overcame England number 117 Andrew Norwood in 4 sets.

Sunday morning saw another positive result for the team when a 4-4 draw was obtained against 8th placed Scottish based side Drumchapel Glasgow II. This was a true team performance as it saw a win for each of the Guernsey players. Joshua earned his first win of the weekend in impressive style due to his straight sets win over Keir Morton, who is equivalently ranked around top 100 in England. Foss also overcame Morton, but needed to edge through 12-10 in the 5th leg of their clash. He came very close to also winning his other match, but lost 11-9 in the 5th to Zaid Khalid. Lawrence beat Harvey McDonald in 4 sets, however it was again Robinson who held his nerve in the final match when he beat Khalid in 4 sets.

The final match of the weekend saw 6th placed side BATTS II win 6-2. Lawrence overcame 91st paced Samuel Chesterman in straight sets, whilst Foss defeated England number 118 Joe Walker in 5 sets. The result could quite easily have been 4-4 as Robinson lost in 5 sets to Chesterman, whilst Joshua was unfortunate to lose 12-10 in the 5th to England number 67 Tony Halling.

The Island’s second team had a more successful weekend and managed to win half of their matches which were contested at the Generation 2 Table Tennis Club in Fareham. The results obtained leave the side in level 2nd position of the 8 strong division.

The team of Paul Hainsworth, Ryan Bichard, Matthew Casey and late stand-in Ryan Gilson had a very tough start to the weekend against the 2 other sides sitting at the top of the table. The first match was against table toppers Joola Plymouth III and their strength in depth is evidenced by the fact that they have team GB Paralympian David Wetherill playing at the number 4 spot. Bichard was the sole winner in a tough 8-1 defeat as he secured an excellent 5 set win over the Plymouth number 1 Joshua Millman, who is ranked 174 in England. Casey came close to defeating Leon Zachariw and let 2 x match points slip from 10-8 in the 5th to lose 12-10, whilst Hainsworth and Bichard let a 2-0 lead slip against Millman and Wetherill in the doubles, losing 11-9 in the decider.

The afternoon fixture was equally tricky and lost to the side joint 2nd in the table, Horsham Spinners II by the score of 6-3. This was despite a promising start which saw Bichard open with an excellent straight sets win over the extremely tricky veteran Stuart Seaholme and a matching straight sets win for Hainsworth over Jack Trafford. Unfortunately for the Sarnians the next win was not obtained until the final match of the encounter when Gilson picked up his first win of the weekend against Scott Cooper in 4 sets.

Sunday saw some much stronger performances from the side and this opened with a 6-3 win against Haywards Heath II. In reverse fashion to the previous match, this saw a great comeback from the local side, who trailed 3-1 heading into the doubles rubber. The sole win during the early stages of the match was for Casey who defeated Terry Dean in straight sets. Hainsworth and Bichard combined very well in the doubles where they defeated John Strang and Ben Worley in straight sets before Hainsworth kept the tempo going with a gritty 4 set win over the Haywards Heath number 1 Strang. Casey then played superbly to overcome Worley in 4 sets leaving Bichard to finish the job against Richard Cousens in 4 sets. Gilson added some polish to the win when he beat Dean in 4 sets.

The final match of the weekend was against 5th placed side Forresters II and another 6-3 win was obtained. Hainsworth put in his best performances of the weekend courtesy of straight sets wins over Cedric Felder and the 7th best Under 21 Female in England, Kate Cheer. He also teamed with Bichard to pick up another strong straight sets doubles win, this time over Cheer and Felder. Bichard defeated Chris Pullinger in 5 sets, whilst Gilson beat the same player in straight sets. Casey finished off the weekend well with a straight sets win over Barry Cheer.

There is a fairly lengthy break until the next action in the British League, as the next fixtures take place on Saturday 16th February for the single day of action.

Ravenscroft Senior British National League Weekend 3 Preview 2018/19 Season

 

Action is coming thick and fast for the Island’s leading table tennis players as the next round of action in the Senior British League is

taking place this weekend. Just 2 weekends prior the leading Ravenscroft-backed Island side travelled to compete in in the Championship Division and the 3rd round of fixtures will take place in Northamptonshire this weekend.

With CI number 1 Garry Dodd still unavailable for action, former Green trophy and Islands Games competitor Alex Robinson will join the usual team comprising of Joshua Stacey, Lawrence Stacey and Ben Foss and he will occupy the number 4 spot.

The season has been extremely tough for the team thus far, in a Division where the standard is extremely high and where the majority of players are top 50 standard in England. Despite this fact, the players have managed to pick up some fine scalps 
along the way and continue to improve from their experiences.

The first clash of the weekend will see them compete against the only team they have yet to compete against, Kingfisher I, who are in 9th position. Their highest ranked player is Daniel Basterfield, however he has only played 4 singles matches so far this campaign. It also contains the classy veteran defender David Barr and the unorthodox but highly effective style of Daniel Moses.

The other matches come against Horsham Blades I, Drumchapel Glasgow II and BATTS II.

The Sarnians had their best results of the season against the latter 2 sides and managed to earn their solitary point of the season during a 4-4 draw with the BATTS side. They were also only narrowly edged out 5-3 by the Scottish based Drumchapel side.

The second team will also be returning to action this weekend to compete in National C-6 and this will be the second weekend of action for them. The team is unchanged and is made up of Paul Hainsworth, Daniel Collenette, Ryan Bichard and Matthew Casey.

Currently sitting level at the top of the Division after 4 wins in the opening weekend, they have a tough weekend of fixtures including a top of the table clash against the other side with a 100% winning record, Joola Plymouth III.

There will be no time to find their feet as the crunch clash is the opener of a very tough Saturday which also sees them compete against 3rd placed side Horsham Spinners II.

Sunday starts with a tie against the side at the bottom of the table, Haywards Heath II and culminates with a match against 6th placed side Forresters III, whom an entertaining 5-4 victory was obtained against in the opening match of the season.

Ravenscroft Senior British National League Report Weekend 2 2018/19 Season

Guernsey’s leading British National League table tennis team have returned from another tough weekend of action from the strong Championship Division.
The Ravenscroft side came out on the wrong side of all of their encounters contested at the Corby Smash table tennis centre in Northamptonshire and currently reside at the foot of the 10 team table.

Joshua Stacey, Lawrence Stacey, Ben Foss and Dan Collenette came closest in their encounters with Portsmouth and Nottingham Sycamore I, but still fell to 6-2 reverses. Nottingham Sycamore are 2nd in the Division and Joshua Stacey earned his first win of the campaign with an excellent 4 set win over the English number 40 Joseph Clark. Lawrence Stacey earned an even better win during the encounter with Wymondham as he overcame England number 36 Naphat Boonyaprapa over 4 sets.

                                                                                                                                                          Ben Foss picked up 2 wins over the weekend                                             
Ben Foss saved his best for the encounter against Portsmouth where he went unbeaten and earned the player of the match accolade. He earned a straightforward straight sets win over Jacob Goss, but his 4 set win over Adeoye Adewale was a superb win. Adewale’s equivalent ranking in England would be around 33, making it Foss’ best win to date this season. Dan Collenette also performed well during his step-up to the first team. He came closest to picking up a win during his narrow 5 set loss to England number 68 Sam Wilson.

There is short time for rest as the next action takes place on 13th and 14th October, where the second string will also return to action.

Ravenscroft Senior British National League Championship Weekend 2 Preview 2018/19 Season


The Championship level of the Senior British National League structure proved to be a massive test for the Ravenscroft sponsored Guernsey table tennis team a few weeks back, however an important point was secured in their encounter with BATTS II.

A main difference between the Championship and the lower Divisions is that there are 10 teams competing in the Division instead of 8 and this results in an extra weekend of fixtures, which will be taking place this weekend.

The team competing this weekend is slightly changed due to the unavailability of the best player in the CI, Garry Dodd. Junior Daniel Collenette competed well from the number 2 spot for the 2nd team earlier this month and he will step-up and play from the number 4 spot, alongside the usual trio of twins Joshua and Lawrence Stacey and Ben Foss.

Saturday’s fixtures are against 6th placed side Wymondham and 3rd placed side Portsmouth. Wymondham have the English number 57 Amirul Hussain heading their team, whilst the Portsmouth side have the vastly experienced defender Adam Proszko in their side and he has won 6 of his 8 matches thus far this season.

Sunday commences with a clash against 7th placed side Ormesby II, who have just a single point more than the Sarnians at present. The youthful side based in Cleveland are mainly ranked outside the top 100 in England and this fixture should be one where the Guernsey side can compete well. The exception is Joshua Weatherby who is ranked 86.

The final fixture is against Nottingham Sycamore, who currently sit at the top of the table alongside Whitworth Academy I. They are a very strong side, led by the second highest ranked player in the Division, James Hobson, who sits at number 20 in the rankings and have strength in depth throughout the team.

Dan Collenette is stepping up to play for
Ravenscroft I for this round of fixtures

Senior Group Tournament

posted 25 Sep 2018, 14:39 by Guernsey Table Tennis Association   [ updated 25 Sep 2018, 14:40 ]

The Channel Islands' leading player Garry Dodd officially opened proceedings to the 2018-19 table tennis season on Monday evening courtesy of his triumph in the Senior Group tournament.

Whilst 8 of the Island’s leading players had already competed in British National League action, this was the first main open tournament of the domestic local season for players to compete in, prior to the start of the Doric Insurance sponsored league season.

The earlier stages of the tournament went largely to proceedings in that all 5 of the top ranked Division 1 players made their way to the Quarter Final stages. Outside of these players there were strong performances from Craig Dunning as the Division 3 player had overcome the odds to defeat higher ranked players Ian Le Page in the group stages over 5 sets and fellow St Paul’s player from the 2nd Division Chas Elliott in 4 sets in the opening knockout round. Dunning was to go no further however as he came up against the imperious Dodd in the Quarters and he succumbed having gained just 8 points over the duration of the match.

Another player to punch well above his weight was 3rd Division Ravenscroft Panthers player Mike Ingrouille. He qualified as runner-up from his group thanks to a strong 5 set win over 2nd Division player Peter Vivian and was very close to reaching the Quarter finals, narrowly losing out in 5 sets to another 2nd Division player Mike Lucas. Lucas went out in the Quarters to Lawrence Stacey in straight sets.

The remaining quarter final clashes saw Joshua Stacey overcome 2nd Division player Albert Unden in a closely contested 4 set encounter and Ben Foss overcome fellow Lions A team-mate Ryan Bichard in straight sets.

Dodd had a tough encounter with Josh in the first semi-final and after sharing the opening 2 ends via 11-8 scorelines, Dodd played the big points well in the remaining 2 ends, which were each claimed 12-10.

Foss and Lawrence had both fared well in the British League just a week reserved and their semi-final was also well contested. Lawrence took the 3rd end 11-7, but ultimately Foss was always in control and the younger player came through in 4 sets.

Foss made the perfect start against Dodd in the final by clinching the opener 11-8, but the Island’s best player increased his level to complete an 8-11, 11-8, 11-9, 12-10 win.

The victory marked Dodd’s 8th Senior Group crown, making it the 3rd most successful tournament within his overall 78 title haul, behind only the Island Men’s Singles Championships and the Capelles Open Singles.


Results

Senior British League - Round 1

posted 12 Sep 2018, 15:22 by Guernsey Table Tennis Association   [ updated 29 Sep 2018, 06:42 ]


The Ravenscroft-backed Guernsey Table Tennis sides have returned from their opening round of fixtures in the Senior British League with mixed results.

The first team of Garry Dodd, Joshua Stacey, Lawrence Stacey and Ben Foss were competing at the heady heights of the Championship Division in Northamptonshire at the Corby Smash Table Tennis centre and as expected found the going tough.

The Championship is the highest rung of the Senior British League structure that the Island has ever reached as it is just a single one below the Premier Division, however despite this fact, the Sarnian side battled well and managed to pick up a vital point during their draw with Batts II on Sunday morning.

In this fixture it was Foss who contributed to a vital double courtesy of excellent wins over Tony Halling and Samuel Chesterman, ranked at 70 and 97 in England respectively. Lawrence Stacey also overcame Chesterman, but it was Dodd who achieved the most impressive win of the weekend when he defeated the second highest ranked player in the Division. Ethan Walsh is ranked 25 in the England Senior Men’s ranking list and is the 7th best Under 21 Male player, but the left-handed Guernsey player played excellently to see off the tough challenge.

The weekend commenced with a 6-2 defeat to Horsham Blades I, however Dodd again picked up a solid win over the top player from the Blades, Swedish player Emil Ohlsson , who is ranked around the equivalent of top 50 in England. Foss also picked up another win over the Horsham number 3.

The afternoon fixture was a hard fought contest, but a narrow 5-3 defeat was incurred against Scottish side Drumchapel Glasgow II. Foss again performed well from the number 4 spot and picked up wins over Sepehr Bidari and Zaid Khalid. Bidari is equivalently ranked in the top 65 in Senior Men within England and the 5 set win was even more impressive as it required Foss to battle back from 2-0 down to win. Lawrence picked up the other win during his 4 set win over Khalid and he came very close to securing a point for the Guernsey side, narrowly going down in 5 sets to Dylan Curry. Stacey had led 2-1, but was crucially edged out 13-11 in what proved to be a decisive 4th end.

The final match of the weekend came against the strongest side in the Division, Whitworth Academy I and they won via an 8-0 whitewash. This does not serve as a true reflection of the competitiveness of the match however, as only 2 of the matches were won 3-0 by the league leaders and both of these matches were won by the impressive highest ranked player in the Division, Team GB Paralympian Kim Daybell, who is ranked in the top 20 in England’s senior Men’s ranking list. Foss came the closest to getting a match on the board as he lost in 5 sets to Samuel Perry who is ranked 64 in England.

The players will be returning to action at the end of September for a further 4 fixtures.

The youthful second team captained by Paul Hainsworth containing Daniel Collenette, Ryan Bichard and Matthew Casey had an excellent weekend in National C-6 held at the Generation 2 Table Tennis Centre in Fareham and managed to win all 4 of their matches.

Hainsworth, operating from the number 1 spot led the team strongly courtesy of an unbeaten weekend of 8 straight singles wins and he was well supported by the rest of the team, who won 15 of their 24 singles matches.

The first match of the weekend was a perfect test against Forresters III and in the end a very close 5-4 victory was obtained. Hainsworth and Bichard made the perfect starts in the fixture as each went unbeaten in singles action. Both defeated the 7th best Under 21 female player in England and former Junior International Kate Cheer, with Hainsworth coming back from 2-0 to win in 5, whilst Bichard impressively dispatched her in straight games. Hainsworth’s other win came in straight sets against Forresters number 1 Adam Daley, whilst Bichard came back from 2-1 down to overcome the tricky challenge of Christopher Penrose. In the same nature as Hainsworth and Bichard, Collenette did it the hard way in his win as he came back from 2-1 down to overcome Cedric Felder over the full distance, 13-11 in the final game.

The remaining fixture of the day against Brighton City III saw an emphatic 8-1 win obtained by the team. The match saw Casey earn his first wins of the weekend and both were secured in 4 sets. Collenette lost the only match in 4 games to the very unorthodox style of Brighton’s junior Jamar McGlaushin who was playing from the number 1 spot.

Sunday commenced with an encounter against Waterside II and Hainsworth and Collenette directly contributed to 5 of the 7 wins. Each defeated number 1 Jared Schaller, the youngster who had competed and won 3 of his 4 matches in the Higher National B Division the previous day. Collenette came through impressively in 3 tight sets, whilst Hainsworth had to do it the hard way and won in 5 sets. The duo won their other singles matches 3-0 and also teamed to win the doubles over Schaller and Paul May comprehensively in straight sets. Bichard picked up a 4 set win over Cameron Brealey, whilst Casey edged past Jason Lockyer 11-9 in the 5th set of the final match of the encounter.

The final match was yet another tough clash, but the side showed good mettle when required and won through 5-4 against Newton Abbott TTC. Collenette and Hainsworth gave the side the perfect start courtesy of wins over number 1 Kevin Nicholls in straight sets and number 2 Fraser Kent in 4 sets respectively and Bichard ensured a 3-1 lead was taken into the doubles when he beat Wim Faassen 3-0. The Newton side took the doubles in 4 sets over Bichard and Collenette and the following 2 matches were absolutely pivotal towards the outcome of the match. Hainsworth was defending his 100% singles record against Nicholls and was far from his best. He dug deep though and came back from 2-1 down to win it 12-10 in the decider, having earlier spurned 2 match points at 10-8. Collenette was also struggling in the very next match against Newton number 3 Jon Cheung, but like Hainsworth he battled extremely hard and managed to successfully over-turn a 2-1 deficit, saving multiple match points before coming through 14-12 in the decider. With the result already obtained, the final 2 matches were lost by Bichard and Casey to Kent and Faassen in 5 sets respectively.

The second team return to action in October for the next round of fixtures.

Senior British League Preview 2018/19

posted 6 Sep 2018, 12:01 by Guernsey Table Tennis Association   [ updated 6 Sep 2018, 12:15 ]

 
The local table tennis season does not officially kick-off until Wednesday 19th September for the Island’s leading players, where the first fixtures from the top flight of the Doric Insurance sponsored leagues will take place. Despite this fact, they will be commencing competitive action this weekend, where the opening round of fixtures in the Senior British National League will be taking place.

With the backing of Ravenscroft, the Island’s top players have flourished in this competition and the first team are making their debut in the Championship tier of the structure. Following the overhaul in structure a few seasons ago into a pyramid system, the prestigious Championship division is the second highest and will give a great opportunity for the Sarnians to test themselves against some of the top players in Britain.The first team’s action in the Championship Division will be taking place in the Corby Smash Table Tennis Centre, which is located in Northamptonshire.
Picture courtesy Guernsey Press                              

A large difference this season for the squad will be the fact that there is an extra weekend of fixtures, due to the fact that there are 10 teams in the Division, 2 larger than the usual perm of 8.

The Island’s leading side is unsurprisingly made up of the exact quartet of players that earned the promotion to the Championship Division last season. They also memorably won team gold at the Island Games in Gotland last year and more recently overcame their Jersey rivals in the Green Trophy inter-insular encounter. They are led by the leading player in the Channel Islands, Garry Dodd and he will be supported by Joshua Stacey, Lawrence Stacey and Ben Foss.

It is often difficult to gauge the strength of teams prior to the first round of fixtures, but a review of each club’s ranking list generally gives an idea as to how strong each will be. It looks like the majority of teams within the Championship Division will have 4 players within the equivalent of top 100 ranking in England, so the standard will be very high. The highest ranked player in the Division looks to be Team GB British Paralympian Kim Daybell, who is ranked 20 in England.
A second team will again be competing in the British League structure this season and the venue for action in National C-6 will be the Generation II Table Tennis Club in Fareham, the same location as last season.
The second team has been an extremely useful tool in developing some of the Island’s improving Junior players and there will be a good opportunity for ensuring that this continues with the squad selected.

Paul Hainsworth will once more take charge of the team, which includes Juniors in the form of Daniel Collenette, Ryan Bichard and Matthew Casey. All of the Juniors have experienced SBL action over the past few seasons and are now firmly established players in the local 1st Division league.  Forresters II look to have the strongest team in the Division and also happen to be the first match of the season for the Guernsey side.
