We completed our NJL season this year.
NJL WK Feb 2020
The league tables at the end of the season look a bit more respectable.
On the final day all our players excelled themselves. We attended the event with two teams a player short , but trhis did not affect the outcome.
Luca Chan and Adam Gold held the A team in Division three together well. The only match they won all season was on the final day with only two players against the team that finished Division 3 Champions. Again of their 28 points over 4 days they won 11 with just the two of them.
Our C team in Division 4 struggled but both Kipper and Daniel played extremely well and will be winning mor matches in the future.
But the highlight of the day was the B team winning Division 4. Kranthi, Louis and Billyray have practised and improved throughout the season and saved their best performances for the last day securing three wins over Luton Mossford B and our C team 7-2 5-4 and 9-0 respectively.
NJL Week 1 Tables. Oct 28th 2019
We knew from the outset we would be struggling, playing reserves up in divisions that were just a bit too high for them at the moment.😕
But credit to all the players as there were no complaints everyone tried, and represented the club well.😄
Hopefully those who played will be inspired to train harder and in a more focused manner.🤔
Next round we should have all our players playing in the correct divisions and trying to make up lost ground....
One positive to take from the league tables is that over the rest of the season any movement in the Divisions will be upward.😂😂
Cippenham Young Players Festival 2019
U.12 Boys event.
The club was represented by Adam gold of Teddington School and Louis McPhee of Collis junior.
In the group stage for the U12's Non Attendance by some entries meant Adam and Louis were moved into the same group where they had to not only pit their skills against each other but also against a player ranked No.1 in Wales at U.11.
Louis and Adam both beat the fourth player but lost to Toby although Adam managed to get one set of him. When Adam and Louis met it was a tight tense affair with Adam going into a lead but then Louis fighting back to win 3-2 in a close last game.
Louis qualified for the main draw, while Adam went through to contest the consolation event.
In the Main knockout event Louis won his first round match 16-14 in the fifth after losing the first two sets. In the 1/4 finals he lost to Kai Sun Yiu No 72 at U.13 who won the overall event.
Congratulations to Adam, who in the consolation event, swept all opposition aside to win the final and come home with the trophy. 😲🤩🤩🤩
Thanks to Adam and Louis' Dads for entering them and taking them there.
Sunday 23rd June London Youth Games. At the start of the day my feelings were one's of relief at knowing that we had both a boys and girls team to represent the borough. Often in the past we have had to scrape around, beg, steal and borrow players to get a team together, but for this year all our players were keen members of our club.😊
Sabrina and Sophia of Waldegrave School along with Alina of Nelson school pulled of the surprise of the day finishing second in their group and progressing to the quarter-finals where they met the eventual winners of the competition with no less than a National Champion in their squad. 😲
They finished in 5th-8th place a brilliant result as they had only started competitive play this season.😊😊😊 Thanks to Sharon for managing the team.
The boys too, rose to the occasion. Louis McPhee of Collis school, Adam Gold and Kranthi Thammandra of Teddington school and Billy ray Edwards of Orleans Park represented the Borough. In their group of six teams they finished 3rd after some battling performances and nail biting finishes and went on to meet the other 3rd place teams.😄 They then finished second after being awarded a walkover v Camden a win against Ealing but a loss against a very strong Kingston team.
The squad finished in 10th place all the boys were thirteen years or younger so still have years ahead of them to develop their play... next year the top eight!!!
A great day well done to all the squad on being great ambassadors for the club....🤗🤗🤗
The picture depicts our squad that represented us on the final day of the Nightingale NCL.
Well done to Kipper, William, Sabrina and Nicholas who improved so much this year that they were able to compete at this level.
Congratulations to those who played in the bottom division, Div 3 as they finished up as Division Three Champions.
In total at least ten players played in that division although by the end of the season four have now stopped playing while three others finished the season promoted to Division 2
NJL at London Academy Oct 2017
Well done to all the squad on a day of great performances!
Having revisited the results of the NJL I find it quite reassuring regarding the state and the future of our club. Although it is now two seasons since we were in Division 1 of NJL. The recent results show we are developing a new strong squad of players that may soon take us back there.
Our A and B teams in Divisions 4,5 respectively between them played 8 matches and were undefeated 2 draws however cost the A team promotion. The C team won their matches against the top and 3rd place teams, but lost to the team that finished bottom of the 6th division.
Not quite the same level of achievement as last year but having had so many experienced players deciding to quit playing, it was hardly surprising. That said however:
It was a a great day out at the 2017 London Youth Games yesterday and well done! to Jules, Arya, Oliver, Davide and Linda who represented the borough and club and Twickenham Brunswick along with three Richmond Park Academy girls.
The results: We lost every match... Some great efforts and performances but better still they turned out while thousands in the Borough either did not relish the challenge, have the ability or know that the opportunity was there.
2016 LYG Table Tennis
Twickenham Brunswick v Ashford
Today’s match with Ashford was a first opportunity for many of the youngest players in both clubs to get their first taste of competitive match play.
With players ranging from age 6 to 13 and experience ranging from a few weeks to a couple of years it was very much a learning exercise for all involved.
Both clubs fielded 9 players so we ran a Pool stage (mixed standards) with 3 groups of 6, followed by a second round of 3 groups of 6
– this time ranked according to results from the previous round.
In the 1st to 6th place group, the first three places went to Ashford players – Aarya Karthik, Joseph Jafari and Ashrith Behara, with 4th 5th and 6th
to Twickenham Billy Knox, Nathan Maghlaoui and Kush Verma.
7th the 12th places were as follows ; Will de Noronha , Parin Shah (both Ashford), Sam Johal (Twickenham),
Alex Griffiths, Aaron Reader (both Ashford) Oliver Dugaric (Twickenham)
And finally 13th to 18th places; George de Noronha, Vedant Hariharan (Ashford) , Alex Wang, Anant Sharma, Amar Jaffa, Eric Kacynsk (Twickenham)
Many thanks to Mark Roper for his report and organisational skills.

The Russel Grant Cup 2016
This weekend Saturday 26th March 2016 saw the Russell Grant Cup competition played at our club. The competition is a Junior Inter-league Competition between Middlesex Leagues. Wembley and Harrow, North Middlesex, Staines, and the South and West Middlesex leagues were all invited to play. Unfortunately the Staines League were unable to field a team but Wembley and Harrow and North Middlesex were both able to field two teams while the South and West Middlesex League were represented by players from our club. It was both an honour and a privilege to host the competition as our club is never utilised for Table Tennis England events, or for any other table tennis events apart from our own usage. I have to commend all the visiting players, parents and coaches on making the day a most enjoyable experience as the day progressed with a great spirit of competition but also sporting behaviour.
The size and strength of the opposing leagues was really quite formidable when compared to our league of one division and only two clubs having any junior players. So it was quite commendable that our squad of Charlie and Alex Rahbani, Alex Gough, Medha Verma and Hardeep Dhaliwal managed to finish in fourth place from the five teams. and perhaps the performance of the day was to lose 5-4 to the overall winners Wembley and Harrow 1 .

The Future of twickenham Brunswick TTC
Twickenham Brunswick has gone through a successful era when we have produced over a dozen or more very talented players.
The players that have been successful have gradually moved on and gone on to university, or given up the game.
However the club does not now have the number of keen players who recognise how well they have progressed and have a desire to reach their potential.
Some players reach a good standard and know that to improve further, it will need effort, at which point they gradually play less, win less and therefore get little satisfaction through playing.
The club is constantly on the lookout for young players who want to do well at table tennis. If you have the desire and the will to succeed you will and that applies to everything.
If you want to try table tennis you do not have to be good, we will help you achieve that.
Medha is now the new success story to come out of Twickenham Brunswick. We may not have the financial backing of sponsors or the coaching structure of centres of excellence, but Twickenham Brunswick still are able to produce classy table tennis players.
Medha started attending the club when she was quite young with her Dad and over the past 4-5 years she has worked hard at her game training within the club with her dad and gaining useful practice outside of the club at Table Tennis camps and with other players and coaches.
Medha has a great attitude to learning and a willingness to listen and try. She has good self motivation and is constantly driving herself on to do better. She has played in National Junior League testing some out some very strong young men, and proving too strong for nearly all the boys in NCL
Here is a brief summary of 2015-2016 season for Medha:

Brunswick - Ashford Tournament
It was a great way to start the New Year. What would have been a very quiet morning at our Saturday session turned into a competitive but friendly event against a group of young aspiring players from Ashford. The morning's event was out of necessity a little "random" as we had no idea how many would arrive. In the end we had a group of 15 players that we placed into three groups of five with a spread of abilities.
After the first round we ran a second group of matches reflecting their achievements in the first groups.
The top group saw George Long, Alex Gough and Luke Saunders play off for first, second and third places respectively
Fourth to sixth places were achieved by Giacomo Giarola, Amol Apte and Matt Palmer also in that order.
Places 7-15 Rahul, Ismail, Ellie, Ayush, Liam, Ben, Joseph, Resandu, Nathan.
Well done to all the players on making it a thoroughly enjoyable event with no tears, tantrums or gamesmanship.....
Medha Wins Halifax 2*
Table Tennis Day Tournament
Although every day is table tennis day at Twickenham Brunswick, we tried to recognise the day as being a bit special by holding a junior and senior tournament. As is often the case when we hold internal competitions support was a little on the low side as the club members know their place within the club structure.
However the ten juniors who turned up played two round robin groups of five to find the top two of each group. The number ones then played off for first and second and we decreed the number twos were third place equal.
Hardeep beat Alex in the final which was a very close affair. The remaining eight players enjoyed some tough competitive play which will stand them in good stead for the coming season. For most of the group this was their first ever competition so well done to you all.
Brunswick v Ashford Friendly June 2015
London Youth Games 2015
In spite of efforts to encourage more participants to trial for the Richmond Borough team, the LYG Table Tennis event took place this weekend at Redbridge with just three boys representing the borough and unfortunately no girls team at all. Finlay Feil and Hardeep Dhaliwal, now experienced players, led the team supported by the up and coming Morgan Wilkins.
The team were in a group containing Waltham Forest, Camden and Croyden. who were the seeded team.
It is always difficult to assess the strength needed to win a match, but we started the day playing Morgan and Hardeep as the two singles players against Waltham Forest. Morgan and Hardeep beat both of their players and Finlay joined Hrdeep to win the doubles earning us a 5-0 victory.
Against Croyden things were different. Finlay joined Hardeep in the singles and after the singles matches the match stood at 2-2, Reiss Vydelingum having won his two singles and showing why he is ranked 19 in the cadets. The doubles went the way of Croyden and we succumbed to a 2-3 defeat.
Our last match against Camden again Morgan played in the singles with Finlay wher both won their respective singles giving us a 4-0 lead and when Hardeep and Fnlay paired for the doubles again the match was won 5-0.
Well done to the team and Alex Gough for helping with the management.
National Qualifiers 2015
Congratulations to Medha Verma and Morgan Wilkins on reaching the National Championships again this year. After a trying day of play Medha qualified in 4th place for the U.14 girls having won 3/5 matches while Morgan Wilkins qualified as an U.12 boy having won at least 11/12 matches.
Well done to Medha and Morgan for continuing the the clubs history of success in having members playing in the National Championships for the last five years.
Previous representatives have been D.Rahbani, A Egan, C. Rahbani, J.Corner, R.Folan, A.Rahbani, F. Feil, H. Dhaliwal, A. Rahbani, M. Verma, and M. Wilkins.
London Qualifiers for Nationals Oct 2014
National Championships 2014
Twickenham Brunswick will be represented by Morgan Wilkins at the National Championships for 11-14 year olds. Ten year old Morgan started as an absolute beginner 2 years ago when I suggested he could be top 20 in England in his age group within the year. Unfortunately we never found out as the divulging of ranking information other than the main rankings was scrapped. Morgan practiced once or twice a week during the first year but then stopped for the summer only to return as a member of the boxing club. After a short while he returned to table tennis training, and playing in the National Cadet League and National Junior League. at the end of his second year after 18 months of training he entered the London Qualifiers for the Nationals and finished fourth in his group.
On the weekend of the 1st of June 2014 Morgan will be travelling to Doncaster to play in the U.11 boys competition where he will be matched up against Amirul Hussain the England No.1 also No.8 at U.13. A win might be a little too much to expect, but I will be highly delighted with any score as long as he plays to his potential both regards to his style and determination.
Good luck Morgan....
Ashford End of Year Tournament 2013
Thanks to all for another enjoyable match yesterday, here are the results.
Congratulations to James Corner, Alex Gough and Rhiannon Folan who finished 1st, 2nd and 3rd overall for the day
Well done to Nikit who was the Ashford player with the highest win percentage
County League Championships
David Rahbani (Middx I) and Rhiannon Folan (Surrey I) both played in the premier Division ( the highest level in the competition).
David did exceptionally well winning 3/6 of his matches. He also went to 5 sets with Alec Ward ( ETTA rank 11) of Cleveland, a great achievement considering Alec beat Adam Harrison ( ETTA rank 3) the previous day. Rhiannon also did very well against very strong opposition, most of the other girls were ranked in the top 20 in England or top rank in Wales. She managed to win games off a couple of top 10 English juniors and beat the no 2 girl from Kent. A great debut to her county table tennis career.
Tony Egan (Middx II), Danielle Kelly ( Surrey II) and Medha Verma ( Surrey II) played in Div 1B hosted at Ashford .
Tony played very well to win 5/6 of his matches against Surrey II, Essex I and Essex II.
The girls found it very tough in their first outing at this level 5 out of 6 of their opponents are ranked in the top 35 juniors. However Medha managed a win beating Essex II No 2 player Zoe Davies. Danielle did well too taking a set off Jane Li of Essex I, a great result considering Jane is ranked 21 in juniors. Both girls are still only 11 years old with at least another 6 years playing county table tennis, their time will come.
5/6 Oct 2013
At the recent London Qualifiers for the National Junior and Cadet Championships it was pleasing to see a number of our juniors entering and having a go...
Congratulations go to Alex Gough and Alex Rahbani who will have gained some valuable experience playing in tough group matches in the junior and cadet age groups respectively.
Well done too, to the girls
Medha Verma who finished fifth in the Cadets Girls finishing as second reserve.
And Rhiannon Folan who came fifth in the Junior Girls to finish overall as second reserve
However the more outstanding performances came from
David Rahbani who qualified in third place for the Junior Boys and
James Corner who qualified in third place for the Cadet Boys
Well done! We look forward to following their progress in the National Championships next month
Ashford 4 Club Tournament
Ashford 4 Club Tournament
Bank Holiday Monday saw five players from Twickenham Brunswick travel to our neighbouring club Ashford to participate in a four club junior tournament. In total there were some forty young players representing Reading, Rosehill, Ashford and of course Twickenham Brunswick. It was disappointing that we had so few representing us, but at the same time it was great to see two new players making their first appearance in competitive play. Theo Hainsworth 10 has only been playing a year and Luca Chan 8 just a couple of months, but both played outstandingly well considering their lack of experience.
Theo in Band C won five matches and narrowly lost just three, while Luca managed two wins.
Hardeep Dhaliwal played In Band B so that we were represented in all four bands, but proved to be far too strong for the group winning all his matches.
In the A Band Alex Gough won the majority of his matches, and Rhiannon Folan won 50%
The results were calculated by the percentage of matches won
In Band A Rhiannon and Alex finished second on 69% behind Rosehill on 71%
In Band B Hardeep finished on 100% and made us the clear winner.
In Band C Theo won 63%
and Luca won a very commendable 2 matches
Club JuniorTournament 2013
On Saturday 6th July there will be a club tournament for junior members.
10 am Under 13's / 1pm U.15's and at 4pm U.18's
It was a shame that more players did not take the opportunity to take part in the club tournament, but for those who came there was a full morning of competition for the U.13's.
There was also no lack of talent as all the six players at U.13 were ranked inside the top 200 in the ETTA Rankings. The format for the tournament was a round robin with the top three players performing up to expectation. James Corner (25) finished top, having completed his matches unbeaten, Michal Papior (58) overcame all his opponents apart from James which included a narrow victory in five over Finlay Feil (62).
Positions 4, 5 and 6 though did not follow to form. Matthew Hazell (195) who has been training hard recently, finished fourth beating Alex Rahbani (70) and Tyrell Soleyn (132) with Alex finishing fifth and Tyrell sixth.
The arrival of Jack Richards, Alexander Gough and John Barman meant that the U.15's tournament went ahead with eight players. The format was two groups of four which saw James, Michal, Finlay and Jack qualify for the final stage, but after the initial groups the weather and other commitments saw a couple of players make an early exit.
The final groups were therefore a play off between the U.13 top three and Alex Gough, Matthew Hazell and John Barman for third, fourth and fifth place.
The outcome was the same as previously with James beating both Michal and Finlay, and Michal again defeating Finlay in a close 5 set match.
Congratulations to all James Corner on winning the U.15's tournament and to all the players on turning up and making the competition worthwhile.
EIGHT top 100 players in ETTA Rankings
The season is drawing to a close for table tennis, but there has been no easing up by the players at Twickenham Brunswick. In the latest ETTA ranking list no less than EIGHT different players appear in the top 100 of the England rankings for their age group.
The U.13 list makes interesting reading with SIX Twickenham Brunswick players appearing in the top 140.
Congratulations go to Medha Verma who after training hard for two seasons now finds herself in the top 50 in England at U.13
All this at the end of a week that saw our cadet Division 1 and 2 teams overcome quite stiff opposition in the NCL cup competitions at Capital City Academy becoming champions in both divisions.
LONDON QUALIFIERS U.11 12 13 14
This weekend saw a number of our players making the long journey over to Morpeth School for the London Region Qualifiers.
On the Saturday we were short of a couple of top 100 U.13 ranked players with James and Michal away for Easter but the two players available did extremely well in representing the club. Tyrell Soleyn came third in his group so missed out on playing for a qualifying place. he did then go on to win all the games in his final group, giving him a good win lose ratio. However Finlay Feil, surpassed all expectations, and in keenly contested groups that showed there was little to choose between the top 8 or so players, he performed brilliantly to qualify in second place for the national U.13's Finals beating E Gozcu ranked 49 at U.13.
Medha Verma competed in the girls u.13's and just missed out on a qualifying place but finished as first reserve.
Well done too, to Morgan Wilkins who after starting table tennis last July won his first competitive match playing in the U.11 age group
On the Sunday we again travelled for the u.12 and U.14 competitions.
In the u.14's John Barman and a Alex Rahbani, who was far from well, struggled in their groups but went on to have many good wins in later rounds.
Medha again had a very good day and surprised us all by finishing in first place to qualify for the national finals.
Meanwhile Finlay Feil playing in the u.12's won his first group but then suffered a defeat at the hands of Kai Gazzi Timms which put him out of the running for a qualifying place. However in the play offs for 5th-8th place after he suffered a further defeat by Z Premji he performed outstandingly well redeeming himself with two good wins over J Dignum and T Achampong (ranked 43 at U.13) who had both beaten him in the U.13's competition the day before. On countback this placed him top of the group and 1st reserve for the national finals in the U.12 age group.
Well done to everybody who took part we will be well represented at the nationals once again this year.
Dulwich 2* Tournament
Congratulations to the Rahbani brothers and Anthony Egan on a successful trip to Dulwich
The 2 star Dulwich tournaments was a huge success for David Rahbani as he reached the final to then face James Denyer. He played outstandingly well but was not able to win it. He took second place with his first financial win of £30 and a medal. Anthony Egan also played very well to finish in fourth place losing to Musa who had to play David in the semi-finals. This was a huge achievement for both players. Charlie Rahbani did well to get through the group stages but lost in the knock out stages. On the other hand Alex Rahbani did brilliantly getting through his group stage and then having a great win against Michael Tunubu. Then in the semi-finals he faced James Smith and did fantastically to get a set of him. Overall it was a fantastic day.
James Denyer (E) beat David Rahbani (Mi) 3-0 (11-8, 11-2, 11-6) in the final

James Corner Wins Milton Keynes U13's 2*
Saturday 27th October saw another great achievement for the club
when a group of five players travelled up to Milton Keynes for an
U.13's 2* Tournament. With a 7.30am early start and arriving dead
on 9am, there was littletime for the players to knock before being
thrown in to fierce competition.James Corner got straight down to
business winning his first two group matches, while Michael Papior
and Finlay Feil both started a little slower losing one match each in
their opening group. In the second round of matches James continued his winning
streak with two more convincing successes.
Finlay and Michael also won both of their second round matches
while Tyrell and Medha fought well but to no avail.
In a clash of home players Finlay Feil
and Michael Papior competed in a play off match that saw Finlay
triumph both had some good wins against higher ranked players.
But the day belonged to James Corner who defeated Artur V Caltabiano
in a close final contest, ending the day victorious and undefeated.
WELL DONE JAMES!
In the latest rating list, in the whole of England there are only 5 Counties who,at present, have more top
100 players at U.13 than Twickenham Brunswick.
We will be starting the new season in September 17 England Ranked players with five players in the
top 100U.13's in England.
We also have players ranked n the top 100 in Junior Boys and Girls and Cadet Boys. There are
also a number of new players to our pretty large squad, that I suspect will also be appearing very
shortly in the ETTA Ratings lists....
LONDON YOUTH GAMES
Another great landmark for the club as 16 players from our club represented Hounslow and
Richmond Boroughs in the Balfour Beatty London Youth Games.
Richmond Boys Came third in their group one place better than last year, a great achievement
as there were only two boys over the age of thirteen out of the squad of 6.
Jack Richards and Alexander Gough13 and 14 respectively were supported by John Barman 12,
Hardeep Dhaliwal 12, James corner 12 and Finlay Feil 10
The girls also came third out of a group of 5. Rhiannon Folan, Caroline Cooper and Medha Verma
all did their part in picking up games against all but the highest ranked players.
Hounslow repeated their success of last year by making it through to the finals at Crystal Palace.
Unfortunately the new format saw them drawn against a strong Hillingdon team who went on to
lose in the final against wandsworth after rthey only just crept through with a 3-2 win over our
Congratulations and well done to David and Charlie Rahbani, Anthony Egan and Michael Papior
who went to the groups stage as a very patient reserve...

Brunswick Dominate Greenhouse Bevin 2* Tournament
Congratulations to David Rahbani on winning the U.18's Junior Tournament last weekend. It is the best result the club has achieved and was sweetened further by the fact that in the Final he over came Anthony Egan another player from our Club. Anthony ranked (231) had reched the final by beating much higher ranked players such as Andre Dunkley (98) and Charlie Austen (89) and is equally deserving of recognition.
Twickenham players finished as champion and runner up
Well done too to Rhiannon Folan who reached the semi-final of the girls u.15 age group.In her group she lost to Katie Cheer, and in the semi-final she was defeated by Evie Forster, But both the higher ranked girls were aware they were in a battle although Rhiannon lost 3-0 and 3-0 the games were close as Rhiannon made them work for every point.
Well done to the whole squad who again were a credit to the club
David Rahbani, Anthony Egan, Charlie Rahbani, Rhiannon Folan, Jack Richards, Alex Rahbani and Finlay Feil
First Competition Experience
Last wednesday we took nine players over to Ashford for an afternoon team competition.
The players were split into three fairly equal teams to play each of the opposing teams.
For some of our players it was business as usual but for four of our players it was their
first introduction to real competitive play. Karim, Josh, Gerhard and David are relatively
inexperienced players ranging in age from 9-11 but that did not stop them giving their all.
Although competitive the whole afternoon was played out in a really good spirit and I for
one enjoyed the afternoon
Well done to all the players it is good to see a new crop of players developing for next
Thank you to Ashford for the invitation....

The Ernest Bevin 2* Table Tennis Tournament
Saturday 4th December 2010
Twickenham Brunswick Take Two Table Tennis Titles
Twickenham Brunswick took a strong squad of young table tennis players to the Ernest Bevin 2* Tournament this weekend and demonstrated for all to see why they have every right to be proud of the young players they have developed.
With three players ranked in the
top 20 in England it was no surprise that two made it through their groups to
the last eight in the knockout stage. Alex Rahbani lost to Tyreek Edwards in
the last eight of the knockout, but team mate James Corner, No.6 in England
came through his group to beat T.J. Stewart No. 10 in England thenTyreek
Edwards No.17 in England.. In the final he met Bejay Arjan the England No.18 whom he beat with a steady controlled performance that earned him the U.11 title.
Not to be outdone Charlie Rahbani, ranked 14 in England in the U.13 age group, competing in a large entry of forty eight players coasted through his group making his way through to the semi final where he met Omar Khassal ranked 17 in England. In a hard fought game Charlie came through winning 3-2 in games only to meet the England Number 11 Oliver Gunns. In another closely contested match Charlie Rahbani showed that he was that little bit more tactically aware and crept through to win the U.13 age group final with another 3-2 victory.Well done to all the squad, David rahbani who lost in the last eight of the U.15's, Jack Tubby and Anthony Egan who won some games against very strong opposition, and John Barman, Finlay Feil Joseph Farren and Hardeep Dhaliwal who continue to show why they are ranked amongst some of Englands top younger players.
