Lillington Free Church TTC held its final tournament of the season at St Nicholas Leisure Centre in Warwick on Saturday, attracting a full entry and players from far and wide.

The morning’s events culminated in two cracking senior semi-finals with Lee Dorning defeating Corby’s Henry Arthur and Sam Weaving beating clubmate Sam Wiggins to set up an all-Free Church final which Dorning won 3-0.

The junior event was also a Free Church affair. Adam Cofler came through his semi-final against Will Apted of Eathorpe to face James Robertson who saw off Ben Pearce of Blaenafon. Cofler took the title 11-1, 8-11, 14-12, 12-10.

The cadets’ prize went to the impressive Jack Finney of the Draycott club in Long Eaton who triumphed over Rugby starlet Sam Cafearo.

Young Sophie Rinnhofer of Colebridge won a tense five-setter against Blaenafon’s Callum Hunt to take the under-13 event.

The afternoon events saw a repeat of the morning as Dorning and Weaving contested the Grade A final, Dorning winning 3-1 on this occasion.

The Grade B contest allowed Cafearo to get a winners’ trophy as he triumphed over Matt Pearce of Blaenafon.
