DAVID BROWN’S B team found title-chasing Marsh Conservative far too hot to handle in the Huddersfield Table Tennis League’s Division IIB clash and, despite having home advantage, failed to get on the board.
Tony Hodkinson did take Adrian Normanton to five sets, and at one stage was 2-0 up and 6-5 in the third, but that was the nearest they came to gaining a point, as they could only manage to win four games all evening.
