Ken Riley and Chris Lancashire kept City’s fading hopes alive when they crushed Morecambe 15-0 in the Lancaster and Morecambe Table Tennis Summer League.

Alex Milligan and Ken Richardson had no answer to City’s all-round tactical play and they need to put together a run of form to avoid finishing in bottom place.

Hammers are currently in the hot seat at the wrong end of the table and suffered a 15-0 thrashing when Owen Bendall and Tommy Kennedy consolidated the Garstang position at the top of the league.

Aiden Branch and debutant Adam Ordenez had difficulty handing the power play of the Garstang duo.

Ray Gaskell caused a minor stir for the Hostiles when he won the third game of the first set in their match with Black Ops.

However Carl Stebbing and Jamie Bradbury hit back to collect maximum points from the match.

Dave Hughes and Brian Gourlay made hard work of defeating the Rockets with three of the five sets going to the full five games.

The Lilywhite pairing made the most of their experience to overcome Abhinav Sinha and Hudson Nuttall in a close doubles match before Sinha produced a fine performance to win the last set of the match.

Nathan Beamer won man of the match for East Road with a 100 per cent match record against Grammar but could not prevent his team losing 12-10.

Junior Training starts again this Thursday evening, June 20 between 5.30pm to 6.30pm for Primary pupils and 7pm to 8.30pm for older juniors at Morecambe Community High School sports hall.
