JUNIOR table tennis players from the Clacton and District League showed their talent at the Essex School Games, in Harlow.

Six league youngsters representing Tendring Technology College and Clacton Coastal Academy attended and all emerged with distinction.

Gracie Edwards took the under-16 girls' event, with Harley Wood finishing runner-up.

Daniel Young finished second in the under-16 boys' event while Maci Harvey was second in the under-13 girls' section.

In the under-13 boys' event, Olly Rampton finished top and, although Liam Harris played well to come first-equal in his group, he was unfortunately eliminated on countback.

As the School Games didn't run an under-19s event, the Essex Table Tennis Association organised a separate competition to determine who would represent Essex Schools at the England Schools Championships.

The winner was Clacton's Sam Hume.

Congratulations to all seven youngsters, who were a credit to the Clacton and District Table Tennis League.
