BERTIE Kelly completed a clean sweep at the Somerset County Closed table tennis tournament last week.

After a hat-trick of victories on Saturday during the Juniors segment - taking the junior open, doubles and cadet titles - Bridgwater youngster Kelly would continue his dominance in the open singles on the Sunday.

In the semi-finals, Kelly dispatched Dean Sully, while Steve Hall produced a fine performance to beat Marcin Szram.

Despite his years of experience, Hall was unable to deny young Kelly, being brushed aside in three games as Kelly reclaimed the county title.

Kelly then teamed up with Szram in the doubles, and after navigating a tough match against Marc and Joe Walmsley in the semis, they beat Mike Crook and Phil Payne in four games in the final.

The veterans championship was renamed in honour of the late Brian Gibbs, Somerset’s only international umpire for the sport.

Sully beat Payne to book his spot in the final, while Scott Cooper edged past Ian Chislett in five games.

The final saw Sully battle past Cooper in a tense five-game match to become the first name on the Brian Gibbs memorial trophy.

It was a repeat of last year’s final in the ladies competition, with the same result, as Sarah Baker secured another three-game victory over Julie Byrne in an entertaining clash between two of the region’s top women’s players.

Edgar Sarfs finished the day off with victory in the restricted plate, defeating Ollie Henden in four games to pick up his first piece of county silverware.
