Final Team Managers Bugle
Wednesday 22nd July 2015 1:41 pm
So to my final 'Bugle' of the 2015 season which had to end either in "Magnificent Glory" or as in this case "Heartbreak Defeat". Last Monday saw our final Cox Cup side lose a very close game by 3 shots to a Canterbury side who now play their other rink in the area final. After 18 ends we were in actual fact ahead overall, but unfortunately the gods were smiling a little to the west of Herne Bay and the rest becomes history. The rinks of Ray Chipperfield, Mike Trotter, Bob Day and Brian Gisby - Peter Nolan, Ray Day, Bob Sincock and Steve Brown did the club proud and having spoken to several of the players and seen the look of despair and concern even a day after says it all.
My grateful thanks go to all the players who have represented the club on my selection and those who have attended in a reserve capacity.To all those who have supported the club from the sidelines. All the ladies who have provided the teams meals - superb, Mike Ward, Bill Robb and Robbie Irons who have all given of their time and efforts as my unheralded "Cabinet Ministers" - Thank you .
It is well known that I was against having 3 teams in the Cox Cup. However, having seen the commitment and efforts shown I will be recommending to the necessary parties involved that 3 teams again represent Herne Bay in the 2016 Cox Cup season.
Buttons can now go back to what she does best - sleeping. No more peering around the corner to see what mood her master (I kid myself - this household is run by 4 legs, a tail & 2 furry ears) is in.
