Ian Gomersal's case for the defence is strong
Bradford veteran Ian Gomersal is one of the few defenders still playing in the Bradford Table Tennis League, and he turned the clock back in the opening week of the season with a vintage performance to salvage a draw for Unity A in their home fixture against Embassy A.
Ian Marshall won his first two singles for Embassy, and when Jack Dabrowski and Paul Stephenson both overcame Neil Harris, the visitors looked set for victory at 4-2 up.
Gomersal had other ideas as he mastered both Marshall and Dabrowski to complete his treble, and when Richard Priestley beat Stephenson, Unity were 5-4 down, and Gomersal completed an unbeaten evening by taking the doubles with Priestley in straight games for a share of the points.
In Division Two, all-rounder Ian Tweedale was the star performer as Highdale C opened their account with victory at Unity C.
Tweedale won his three singles, and after Mick Kosmowsky and George Bak had both won one each, Tweedale joined Bak to secure victory in the doubles.
Bradford Veterans-2 faced a tough start to the Yorkshire League with a trip to Harrogate and they were on the wrong end of a 9-1 result.
Phil Mann registered the only Bradford success.
