DANIEL Moses once again was in sublime form as he won his third Kingfisher Grand Prix event in a row and his fifth overall in the 12-week series, however despite once again beating overall tournament leader Liam McTiernan, it was not enough to stop the Woodley man taking the first-place prize money and coveted trophy.

Moses had to settle for second spot, but has definitely been the man in form in recent weeks and again in a top-quality hard-hitting final, he came from 2-1 down to win the best-of-five-sets match 3-2.

Of the 12 events played this summer, McTiernan won seven and Moses five – confirming the superiority they both had over the other competitors in the field.

Moses had earlier had another 3-2 victory in his semi final over Hamilton Road’s former champion Hari Gehlot, who finished in fourth place in the overall table.

McTiernan’s semi-final was more straightforward and he ran out a 3-0 winner over Krasi Ivanov, who finishes the competition in 5th place.

The race for third place was narrowly won by Didcot’s Lewis Waddup, who found himself in the consolation event this week, but managed to win the final against Julian Telford therefore finally securing him the third place prize money.

The top junior player of the series went to Jyothi Ghanta who finished a very credible seventh place in the overall table.

Organier of the tournament, Peter Charters, commented: "The Kingfisher Grand Prix series was a tremendous success and the standard of table tennis throughout was highest it has ever been.

"I'd like to say a big thank you to our sponsors Deva Duuctwork Ltd for their much appreciated support and congratulations to all competitors, but especially our 2019 champion Liam McTiernan.

"He was a deserved winner who was made to fight all the way by the equally impressive Daniel Moses."
