Team Manager's Bugle

The Cox Cup last night came and went for some and created fireworks for others. Whilst two of our sides put in creditable performances against Whitstable and Canterbury our success was against Ashford Rail. In our defeats a special mention must go to Ray Day, Dave Knight, Richie Callanan and Bruce Clayton who took Canturbury to a 1 shot defeat ( 19 - 18 ) on their own soil. This was Canterbury's top side who have aspirations of winning the Cox Cup. Well done gents, you did Herne Bay proud. Our top side annihilated (I can think of no other word ) Ashford Rail 48 - 9. The home rink of Dave Mason, Scott Whiting, Ian Robb and Joe Kelly winning 26- 6 and Bob Baldwin, Shaun Woolford, Paul Woolford and Eddie Allen winning 22- 3. Ashford Rail conceded the game after 16 and 15 ends respectively. So in two games Bob and Eddie have been in sides that have totalled 51 shots for and 4 against.
Finally a big apology. Scotts better half Rebecca who not only supported the game on Sunday, safely drove Mace and her beloved to and from Sandwich and waited patiently afterwards whilst they enjoyed the after match jollies - did she get a mention in the Bugle - No. Rebecca I apologise - if Mace had shown your devotion and dedication................. no I'd better not take that line.
