In the battle for survival at the bottom of the Lancaster and Morecambe Table Tennis League Premier Division, University B are starting to pull away and now look safe.

Garstang Anihilators still prop up the division but picked up useful points with a 27-15 points win against Morecambe A with a notable performance by Nathan Beamer for Morecambe and picking up seven points.

Man of the match for Garstang was Graham Coupe, taking all nine points.

With four matches to go Trimpell City are still showing mixed form after securing a 22-21 win over Uni B with City players Mike and Graham White along with Geeza Bilton all earning seven points each.

A 3-1 doubles loss gave City the vital extra point that eventually separated the teams.

In the NW Junior League, Morecambe A completed the season in third place following the final round of matches. In the first match Matthew Cooke, Nathan Beamer and Aiden Branch won 6-0 against Garstang.

The finishing position then depended on their results against the two Preston teams where they dropped five vital points.

The ‘B’ team had mixed fortunes when Abhinav Sinha, Adam Ordonez and Hudson Nuttal managed to hang to fifth place where they started the day.

Morecambe C, with the youngsters Toby Ellis, Bradley Wilkinson and Matthew Westworth, are improving with every match and their team finished in sixth place.
