Ellenborough’s clean sweep in this season’s
Cheshunt League competitions

All three of Ellenborough’s league teams competing in the Cheshunt League have achieved success this season.

The first team (Ellenborough), captained by June Nelson,  became Division 1 champions after achieving a vital 8-1 win in their final match of the season against their closest rivals, Kidston.  This secured them the championship by just a four point margin, as they had beaten third placed HRC by 6-3 the previous week.  June’s team also included Abdul Olagboyega (pictured), Alan Pearce, Anatol Gasiorowski, Bruce Yang, Kwai Kam, Milen Maglov, Tumay Ekrem and Terry Wilson.

The second team (Ellenborough A), captained by Peter Bayman (pictured), achieved fourth place in Division 1 but won the Handicap Cup Final against Kidston on the 10th April.  Kidston, the stronger team on paper, were giving the Ellenborough team a handicap advantage of just 26 points spread over the 20 games to be played, each up to 21 points.  However, before the final doubles was due to be played Ellenborough A had already stretched their advantage to 70 points and, with only 42 points remaining to be won, Kidston conceded the match.   Ellenborough’s team in the final was Gill Toumbas, Iain Francis (both pictured) and David He, although Thanos Morphitis and Peter had also played in earlier rounds of the competition and Elman Rustamov was the final member of the league team.

The third team (Ellenborough B), captained by Trevor Mansell, became Division 2 champions by a decisive margin of eleven points.  They had, therefore, already won the division before their final match, an 8-1 win over third placed Lytton.  This win gave them an eventual lead of 11 points over second placed team Cheshunt A.  Trevor’s team were, Charlie Izatt, Rob Costa, Alan Hill, Harold Clark, George Cameron, Gunter Biemel, Joan Bayman (pictured) and Sureyya Aydin.
