Lakers Girls Through To County Table Tennis

Lakers went to Dene Magna on 5th Nov to compete in a Table Tennis tournament. Lakers opponents were Dene Magna and Newent. The Y9 and above boys team was comprised of Ryan Gardner, Billy Jessop, Todd Morris and Henry Winfield. Each boy competed against a similarly seeded opponent and played first to 11, best of 3 games. Lakers boys started off positively with a satisfying 7-2 win over Dene Magna. With Newent next, a win would secure a place in the County tournament. Unfortunately, Newent edged us 6-5 and then went on to beat Dene Magna leaving us second and out of a County tournament spot.

The girls team was represented by Millie and Ruby Purser. The girls won all of their games and will go through to the County tournament to represent the Forest of Dean for the second time- a big well done to the girls and good luck in the next stage!
