Horsham Table Tennis Club player Steve Pound took gold in the February round of the Sussex Circuit.

Pound won both the morning and afternoon Band A groups to come out on top.

Club mate Mark Collins was second in both sessions to scoop double silver, while Csaba Balint of Foresters TTC took bronze in the morning, and Rory Scott of Horsham Spinners claimed bronze in the afternoon.

Elsewhere, Kieran Bonner (Horsham Spinners) won bronze in the morning Band C, Josh Denton (Spinners) and Oscar Harvey (Horsham) took second and third in Band D, and in the afternoon Anish Padalkar won the Band C.

Meanwhile, in the Crawley & Horsham League Premier Division Horsham A beat Firesters B 7-2.

Title challengers Horsham needed a good result to maintain their position and trebles from Dan Barna and Steve Barby did just that.

Dave Steel and Csaba Balint posted one each for Foresters.

Horsham Spinners A 3

Foresters C 6

Another treble and man of the match for Rory Scott as he led his team from the front. Phil Nicholls, Brian Risby and Matt Craig played well and all posted doubles.

Horsham B 2 Foresters A 7

Last year’s champions Foresters picked up seven points in what could have been a tricky encounter. Trebles for the superb duo of Wes Bush Harris and Adam Todd, well supported by Mike Robinson did the job.

Horsham D 6

Crawley Community A 3

A treble for man of the match Steve Hoad, two for Erik Van Mol and a single for Marc Weston put six points into the Horsham kit bag.

The two other results saw Trinity A beat Foresters 7-2 with three each for Joe Comper and John Robinson, while Crawley Community B showed no mercy in beating Horsham C 8-1.
