This Div 2 match was brought forward and played on 12/2/18 because the original date would have clashed with Easter Monday. This meant that Boxley faced a team from the top 2 for the 2nd consecutive match having played 2nd placed Cliffe Woods the week previous. As in that match, Boxley put up a good showing and with the score at 3-3 any result was possible but Sturdee showed why they are top of the league and running away with the title by winning the last 4 games for a 7-3 victory. Boxley's Lyndon Gurr played some tremendous table tennis beating the much higher ranked Ken George in 5 and also defeating Mike Porter in straight legs thereby completing a season double over the Sturdee player. Gary Hentschel was also in fine form inflicting a first defeat of the season on Nicky Stokes and then fighting back from 2 legs down to lead 8-4 in the 5th against Mike Porter before Porter used all his experience and fighting qualities to win the next 7 points and get home 11-8. All 3 Sturdee players beat Barry Roles who had an off night.
