Kevin Caldon (Hullbridge-Runnymede A) wins his first O50’s Master Title

Since turning 50, Kevin Caldon has appeared in 9 Masters 050’s finals around the Country and over the weekend of 11th/12th April he finally achieved one of his goals in winning a Men’s O50’s Masters Title, the Western Masters in Bristol.

In the later stages of this event he inflicted Adrian Pilgrim (ranked No 1 in the UK Over 50’s) first ever defeat in this age group. This win should mean that Kevin will appear as No 2 in the Over 50’s UK Ranking list which is to be published shortly.

In the Final, Kevin beat the current UK No 2 ranked Over 50s Keith Williams 3 – 0 and although on paper the scores in these games were very close Kevin always seemed to have the edge, playing his usual controlled counter attacking style where he seems never to make any mistakes and was too strong for Keith.  In the 2nd game Kevin proved that he was just as human as the rest of us as he proceeded to let a 9-2 lead slip away. Keith with nothing to lose played much more aggressively and managed level the score at 10-10 but with the aid of a lucky net Kevin managed to eventually close out the game 12-10.

Kevin’s 2015 record also includes another superb effort in the Southern Masters were he again reached the Over 50’s final only to find himself up against D. Yi the former China Men’s No 5 and World Men’s No 8 who was in the UK to compete in the World Ping Pong Championships at Alexandra Palace. D. Yi clearly still a World Class players ran out a comfortable winner although he did not have it all his own way verses Kevin and had to work hard for some points and I might add did not use a Sand Paper bat but his regular bat.

Kevin is hoping that his run of good form continues over the weekend of the 9th/10th May to enable his to capture the Over 50’s National Men’s Title. A Title that has eluded him on two previous occasions, losing in the finals in 2012 to Nigel Eckersley and 2013 to Keith Williams, Kevin did not compete in 2014.

Winter League 2014 - Winners and Final Tables.

Thorpe Bay A are the SDTTL 2013-14 Winter League Champions for the Premier Division. The postponed match between Rawreth A and Runnymede A was holding us to announce all the Winter League winners and that match has finally been played.

Report from Duncan Taylor, Prem Div secretary. "We can finally announce the winners of this years Premier Division and it could not have been closer. In one of the tightest finishes in recent memory Rawreth A needed a 7-2 win over Runnymede A to take the title. They did win but only 6-3 to leave them agonisingly 1 point behind our Champions THORPE BAY A. Congratulations to Thorpe Bay A and all their players and a big thanks to all players in the division for making it such a great season. See you all in September.....Duncan"
