This season the K.O. Cup Finals have been played well before the end of the season, which started with the first round being played last September. The 4 divisional cups being straight forward knockout matches . The Frank Murphy Trophy being a handicap knockout tournament, with players from lower divisions liable to meet players from the higher divisions, depending on the draw, and this year has brought two teams together with 5 players from the 4th division and 1 regular 1st. division player.

Once again, thanks go out to the Club Secretaries who volunteered the use of their club premises to stage the various Finals, Doug Baker,  CADWA,  Jim Geddes, BOOTLE YMCA,   Tom Purcell,  MERSEYSIDE POLICE, who allowed the Police club to be used for two of our Finals,  and Ron Georgeson, Bath Street, for the use of their excellent new premises at Marine F.C. in Crosby,  and to those who also provided the after match refreshments, in the case of the Frank Murphy Trophy Final, once again these refreshments were provided by Frank's widow Marjorie, helped by Sue & Dave Berry. Also thanks to members of the Management Committee who carried out the functions of Match Official to see that each Final ran smoothly. Mike Power, Arthur Garnett, Graham Rollinson, Ray Lavin and yours truly.

A sad fact is that unless players have an active part in the Finals, the cup finals just don't attract spectators, a shame really as they usually produce some outstanding table tennis, but having said that, a larger than expected crowd was entertained at the 1st. division Readman Final, played at CADWA

The standard of play and sportsmanship at all the finals was first class,

Roly Wright

Cup Secretary
