THE 2006/7 NHTTA League season commenced last week with mostly disappointing results for the Royston Table Tennis Club.
With the loss of Paul Robertson and Lenny Meriez, who have both left Royston, a continuous long-term injury to John Manley and limited availability of Kevin Moore, the club has to reorganise the teams and reduce the number participating to four.
The A team consisting of last year's B team Dave Bridger, Simon Cockman and captain Alf Mills plus Kevin Moore when available, began their Premier Division fixtures with a narrow 6-4 defeat against Le Roi A, Bridger winning two singles and Cockman and Mills one each.
In Division One the B team went down by the same 6-4 margin at Green Man C Malone won two singles, Gowan one and that pair combined to take the doubles.

The C team made up of Terry Bailey, captain Derek Clark and Abigail Moore from last year's D team, Andy Teemal from the E team and new recruit Julian Lugg showed that they could be a team to be reckoned with in Division Two.
Moore led the way winning all her three singles well supported by Bailey and Lugg with two singles apiece and the Moore/ Lugg partnership also took the doubles.
