IT was a disappointing end to the NHTTA League season, with Royston's two promotion chasing sides missing out.

In Division One the B team were up against a strong Bedwell C and in a tense match, Royston just could not do enough on the night with Bedwell edging them out with a 5-3 victory.

Yuci Gou claimed two singles victories, while Martyn Symonds won one of his singles.

In Division Two the D team were outplayed by Green Man G, where only Derek Clark and Julian Lugg managed wins in a 5-2 defeat.

They do have the opportunity to make amends however, when they take on Artos TTC B in the final of the McCloughlin Inter Cup on Monday, May 19.

Meanwhile, the E team also missed out on success after they crashed out of the quarter-final of the Cobb Cup against Green Man E of Division One.

The handicap competition saw Royston start with a 180-point lead. However, it proved insufficient as by the seventh game Green Man were in front by 61 points.
