TABLE TENNIS: Leaders tumble to fouth place:

Rutherford's slender lead in Division 1 of the Oxford & District Association was cast aside this week.

Holton A led the assault, first beating Bicester B 10-0, then seeing off Rutherford 8-2, to go second.

Vikings A joined in by beating Forum A 9-1, taking top spot on points difference.

Finally, Bicester A defeated British Rail 9-1 to go third and consign last week’s leaders to fourth.

In Division 2, leaders Forum C slew Gladiators A 8-2, with maximums for Chris Smith and Fraser Harris.

Vikings C defeated Haddenham A 6-4, despite three for Mark Penn.

Bicester C are still in the hunt after a 6-4 win over Vikings D.

Key wins came from Bicester’s Dave Ralls over Paul Borrowdale and Jack Shardlow over Vikings’ Eamonn Deeley – by 13-11 in the decider.

Begbroke shared the points in a draw with Forum D, Lorne Lonie showing some impressive form to win three.
