The 88 year-old Bill Davison rolled back the years and won player-of-the-match as he won two out of three of his singles matches and the doubles to help Ravenshead Rebels draw 5-5 with Jacksdale D.

Bill, who is also president of the Mansfield and District Table Tennis League, was playing in his first match of the season during the Division Two encounter.

Ravenshead Rhinos lost their undefeated record against Boothys Ravens during a 6-4 defeat.

Steve Scott, for the Rhinos, won his fourth player-of-the-match of the season, but it wasn’t enough as the Ravens won the doubles to take the match 6-4.

This result mean that the Boothys will remain on top over Christmas despite their match being postponed.

Last year’s two newcomers to the league, Zyagbyte Old Bats and New Cross Snipers, battled out a draw in a good game.

Nigel Stent, for the second time in four days, very nearly lost his 100 per cent record when Tony Swain went 2-0 up.

However experienced Nigel managed to overcome this to maintain his record with 18 wins from 18.

Erlands Skels made his Mansfield league debut and made a strong start as he won two out of three of his single matches.

In the Division One Cup the two unbeaten teams Ravenshead Rascals and Zygabyte A kept up their good run after they both won their matches 8-1 against Jacksdale B & Zygabyte B respectively.

Martin Dean, who has played three of the four matches for Rascals in the Division One Cup, managed to get player-of-the-match in all three with another convincing performance in both his singles and doubles.

Bob Hume for Zygabyte A won his first player-of-the-match of the season.
