Paisley para table tennis star Martin Perry teamed up with Raimondo Alecci from Italy to win gold in the men’s class six team event at the PTT Spanish Open.

It was a double success for Perry in Alicante having earlier taken bronze in the men’s class six singles as he added to his gold and bronze medals at the Belgian Open earlier this month.

The 23-year-old progressed from his group in the singles with two wins from three matches and defeated the Croatian Vjekoslav Gregorovic 3-1 in the quarter-final.

But he had to be content with a bronze medal after to a 3-0 loss to Huang Jiaxin from China in the semi-final.

In the round-robin men’s class 6 team event Perry and Alecci defeated Sweden and a combined team from Croatia and Japan before clinching gold with a 2-1 defeat of China.

Perry said: “I feel that I played well. It was a great test to play against the Chinese and unfortunately I lost my semi-final to Huang but another bronze medal is definitely a proud moment.

“In the team event it was certainly a new experience playing alongside Raimondo as we’ve only ever been on opposing ends of the table but it was fun and we enjoyed it.

“I feel our styles of play complimented each other well and we were able to get a really good win over China in the doubles after being 2-1 down. That doubles win was crucial and ensured that we won the final and the gold, so it was a great match to be part of.”
