TICKLE TROPHY 2018
On Sunday May 13th the club held its annual Tickle trophy competition.
This year we had a larger turnout than previous years with 45 members turning up from noon to play.
Whilst the draw for teams was being made by myself (Colin Whiley) with the much appreciated help from Pat Edwards all players were taking part in the now compulsory spider held on every club competition day. The winner received a bottle of wine donated by club president Mr Ricky Knapp.Â (Lucky winner was Keith Hollings ).
With the Draw and the Spider now completed, we now had 12 teams all named after footballing countries around the world.
The top two teams, after playing 3 games during the afternoon collecting the most points had to play off for the coveted trophy.Â The successful teams this year being Wales ( BobTame, Pat Edwards. GillHartley & Gordon Hewer) playing Argentina (Alan Coombe, Jane Lake, Ray O'Brien & our BBQ Chefs Barry Hodges & Terry Grant)
The final this was won by 2 points to nil by Wales.
The weather was very kind to us, this being we had quite a few guests staying and enjoying the afternoon sunshine and entertainment.
A huge thank you goes to Barry & Terry for their exceptional culinary skills. A great afternoon enjoyed by all.
