HALTON Table Tennis League men's team emulated their veteran counterparts by reaching a Lancashire/Cheshire League Cup final.

The final will be held, along with the veterans' Dennis Smith Cup final, at Hilton Table Tennis Centre in Bolton on Thursday, March 22.
McEvoy also had plenty to celebrate on the domestic front. His hat-trick went a long way to securing title-chasing Ford A's victory over Sutton Manor B.
The losers had earlier accounted for Halton/Pavilions, courtesy of unbeaten displays from Howard Flint and Peter Findlater.
Halton/Pavilions were also defeated by Ford B, as Ken Bennett and Rob Goldson scored hat-tricks, and Frodsham A, for whom Mark Barnes and Charlie Ostapski were all-conquering.
Widnes Rec A, meanwhile, picked up useful points in a victory over Runcorn Sports Club B and a draw against Sutton Manor A. Frank James and Paul Shaw served up trebles for the Rec.
John Ashley and Russ Cook of Frodsham B found things fruitful, with hat-tricks against Widnes Rec B.
