HUNNYBELL have reached the final of the North Norfolk Table Tennis League Knockout Singles Cup in their debut season.

In the semi-finals the team of Colin Humphreys, Ian Darricott and John Hancock (junior) hosted the Sharks trio of Nigel Hayward-Surry, Mike Toye (playing up) and Keith Register.

It was relatively plain sailing for Hunnybell as they won the first five encounters, although Humphreys had to recover from a set down against both Hayward-Surry and Register. The dead rubbers were played out with Register taking a win in four over Darricott, but it was Hunnybell who won 8-1.

In the final they will face Sidewinders for the first time in a match that could be an indication of what is to come next season when Hunnybell get promoted to the first division.

The team of John Paul, Peter Ward and Martin Lawes dropped three sets and won a quartet of tight deuce sets during their 6-0 win over the Seals' line-up of Chris Marshall, Ray Amo and new signing Ron Millett.

Sidewinders will play Alpha in the semis, while the other semi will see Sharks play either Dolphins or Backhanders.
