2018 SUMMER SEASON SOCIAL MATCHES REPORT FROM A NON - BOWLER!

Now I know stats don’t always paint a true picture, but they are there in black and white and as such for your delectation, delight and utter boredom, below and attached, are the all important facts and figures for the 2018 social match summer season, which has just been completed.  The Club had a mixed season and from the 27 scheduled matches, 2 were cancelled and 25 were played, of which PARIBC won 10 and lost 15.

This season we had a new captain, Eric Clive, who did a great job, but restrictions due to family commitments at weekends, meant that he was unavailable for these matches and as such, we had 3 other part time captains, (mainly Dave Elliott, but also Dave Hood and Tim Fletcher), who stood in, as and when required.  However, with 4 different captains, it did mean that team continuity seemed to go out the window at times, with players having to play in a variety of positions and adapt on the day.  But all that aside, Eric was kind of thrown in at the deep end and had to learn on the job, so to speak.  Not so much with the playing side, as he can hold his own against anybody out on the green, but more to do with all the many bits and pieces, that go into making sure the match days were a success.  Ably assisted by his wing man, Dave “The Hat” Sutherland, it meant that he managed to achieve this and get the job done and a relatively successful season was had and hopefully enjoyed by all.  And who knows, Eric may even be persuaded to stand for another term, next season?

Thanks to all those 68 members who turned out to represent the Club and to all those who helped Eric and the other captains with the numerous “other” jobs, that made it easier for him / them to get on with his / their role as Captain on the day.  Biggest thanks go to HRH Dorothy Elliott and her various helpers for all their hardworking efforts in the kitchen at the home tea and biccies matches and to Nicola, Adrian and boys / girls in the kitchen for the home meal matches.  Also to Sue Smith and her helpers for their work on bar duties, to Glynis “Guinness” Whatman, for her work with fixtures and to all those who drove and gave lifts to the away matches.  Finally mention must be given to the regular lady supporters, Janet Small, Gloria Smith and Fran Sutherland or the groupies, “Foggy”, “Compo” and “Clegg” as they are more commonly known, who came to nearly all the matches, not only watching and supporting, (in between chatting, knitting and drinking, ho, ho!), but also helping at times with the kitchen and bar duties.  And if I have forgotten anybody for roles, then apologies, but thanks to you as well!  Much appreciated!  Enjoy your winter and please continue to support the Club.  It needs you!  Up the Arthur!

Kind regards, from your correspondent, a so called, loud mouthed, cheat………surely not?!!!
