Dodd earned the prized silverware once again, having dominated the competition for the best part of a decade now, as he extended last month’s perfect record against local opposition with a flawless six wins against Jersey on finals day.
Yet the star left-hander was only part-joking when he suggested that his work is only half done in the annual tournament.
‘Number nine. I want to set a record which is never going to beaten, I’m aiming for about 20 titles – that’s realistic, isn’t it?’ he chuckled after dropping just three sets across both fixtures.
On Saturday at the GTTA Centre, with his confidence buoyed by a month of training with GB’s para-elite at the English Institute of Sport, Dodd was not to drop a single set other than in the final showdown against Mariusz Cieminski.
After winning the first two sets with few hiccups, he blundered on several occasions and slipped down 8-11 to the determined Jerseyman in the third.
But he was quickly back up again – blaming a bit of complacency – as he reversed this result in the follow-up set, celebrating his 11th and final victory after an over-shot serve from his opponent.
