C Team Report – Division 2
What a Season!!!!! We have finished the Season Joint Second on points but overall Fourth on Aggregate and was by far beyond my wildest expectations. Up until our final Match, we were in a position to finish joint top on points but unfortunately our aggregate score would not have promoted us.This was our Third year in the Division and each year we have improved our position. We have a great Team spirit, our priority is to win, stay relaxed, occasional banter and enjoy the game.
We welcomed two new Members in Mel Mason and Peter Hartill into the Team. Mel proved to be very useful backend player and Peter, who came from Crown Green Bowls (equivalent to Crazy Golf in the Golfing World) proved to be a huge success at Lead.
It was great to see Pat Barsdell back halfway through the season after his hip operation. At the same time, Dave Dawson was lost through injury but made a recovery in time for our last game.
I would like to thank both Roger Hendy (a Team Captain) and Fred Sly (B team Captain) for their co-operation throughout the season, Brian Blenkinsop for ensuring the Green was always prepared and marked out ready to play. To all Members who helped with Teas and Coffees as well as our Loyal Supporters.
D Team Report – Afternoon League – Division 1
It was always going to be tough season after we got promoted last year. However, we managed to finish second which was a great achievement by the Team. Our selection policy for the League Games was to give priority to the players who do not play for the C Team. If available, these players were encouraged to play in Tourist Matches for experience.
For the second year running, the D Team won the Harris Cup against a strong Sandown E Team and won a close match by 5 shots.
Once again, my thanks go to all Members who turned up to support us and who helped with the Teas and Coffees.
Alan Mabey – C and D Team Captain
