Rob Smith – Ryde Raiders – Div One

This week’s Isle of Wight Table Tennis Division 1 Match of the Week was between Newport Vics A and Ryde Raiders. 

The 3 Premier League players of the Raiders – Martin Johnstone, Tim Giles and Rob Smith – met their match against Newport’s top team. Newport’s David Hilliam was crowned Player of the Match as he managed 3 wins out of 3, but his game against Ryde’s Martin Johnstone went to 5 sets and was a nail-biting thriller full of long rallies and superb attacking and defensive play.

Johnstone was the unluckiest player of the night losing another 5 setter against Newport’s Paul Freeborn by the narrowest of margins.
