With only a few weeks until our AGM, my time as Men's Captain draws to a close. I'd like to thank everyone for the support I've had over the last 3 years (one as Vice and 2 as Captain!).
It's been nice to have a little bit of playing success with the lads:-
Alex Dixon - North & South Trophy
Phil Ridden - The Logan Trophy
Andrew Minnikin - County Champion then going on to win the national Champion of Champions.
A sixth consequtive Newcastle and District League title
A Dixon Cup win (5 northern leagues)
James Walmsley - individual winner in the Dixon Cup
Teams Championship in the Newcastle and District League (Andrew Minnikin, Karl Mossom and Ian Davidson).
Andrew with a great runner up performace in the North of England Open Amateur Championship this week, and a couple of scratch open successes.
Hopefully we're not quite done yet, with our defence of the European Men's Club Trophy still to come.
Thanks go to the support we've had at league matches, yet again second to none,
But the Captaincy has been about so much more than 'team stuff'.
It's been an honour and joy to work with Past Captain Julie Schofield and Captain Judy Lillico, and of course with Vice Captain Neil Walker who's been great support during the last 2 years.
The Past Captains have also been so welcoming, giving their help along the way: again very much appreciated.
It was great to meet the players on Men's Captain's Day, and to enjoy a tremendous night out at the Captains' Dinner Dance.
Finally, a special word of thanks to David Moffat for his encouragement throughout.
It's been my pleasure to serve.
