Urban TTC Secure a Draw against Drumchapel

Urban TTC are playing there Senior British League home matches at Ellenborough.

Urfi who coaches at Ellenborough is their Captain and they are are striving to do what Ellenborough did in the 1980's, have a Nationally successful team.

Their first home match was against Drumchapel Glasgow, last years Champions

Urban TTC picked up an impressive 4-4 draw against the defending champions.

Japanese star Satoshi Aida was the standout star for the hosts, who picked up two fantastic victories over England No 5 David McBeath and Drumchapel’s Belgian debutant, Yannick Vostes.

But Drumchapel No 3 Simon Berglund secured a maximum of his own to ensure the champions picked up a second consecutive draw.

An incredible contest saw Urban TTC take the lead on three occasions, only to be pegged back each time.

Aida’s superb five-set victory over Vostes was cancelled out by McBeath’s win over Gyorgy, and although Urban went ahead again when Daniel Schaffer cruised past Victor Guang Shi, Berglund recorded an equally comfortable win over Alim Hirji to level things up.

Aida would come to the fore again as he picked up a stunning victory over McBeath in a pulsating five-end contest, but Vostes again brought Drumchapel level with a more straightforward win over Schaffer.

It appeared that Drumchapel might steal the points when Berglund secured his double with a win over Gyorgy, and when Guang Shi went 2-0 up against Hirji, the champions looked to be moving in on their first win of the season. However, Hirji showed incredible determination in front of his home support and won the final three ends 13-11, 11-7, 11-9 to ensure his side earned a share of the spoils.

That result leaves Urban TTC second and Drumchapel sixth, with the Scots currently in a four-way tie on two points.

It was a full days entertainment with junior coaching in the morning and entertainment at half time during the match. Don’t miss the opportunity when Urban TTC play their next SBL match at Ellenborough in the New Year. Details will be given soon.”
