That’s it folks for the junior season. Time for me to retire to the coast, put my feet up and take up bowls.
Unlikely. Seriously though, after 12 years of assisting, managing, motivating, scoring, umpiring, setting up, tidying up and locking up its time to pass the baton over.
The juniors have been a pleasure to be around and despite a couple of disappointing results this year we have performed quite well.
Colton have continued to be our bogey team just as we have always managed to play excellent cricket at Shadwell.
We can look forward to many of the current side playing senior cricket; indeed quite a few are already contributing on a regular basis week in week out. There seems to be some real depth in most departments of the club at present.
I would like to thank all those parents who have helped score, run the tuck shop and raffle along with some sterling work driving around Yorkshire to get to games on time. Also to Andy for giving us an excellent wicket for the final game of the season.
Volunteers are very important in life. Especially in cricket clubs where there is an awful lot of unseen work. I hope that continues at TABS in the future. TABS are 150 years old in 2023. Who knows I may still be playing seniors!
I think Julie wants me out of the house on a Saturday afternoon, however, I must thank Mrs Gibson too for her support (and occasional advice)
Finally; a reminder that we are having a game of rounders at the oval on 24th July starting @6pm.
Adam is kindly providing some chilli for us, which is much appreciated.
Over and (not) out.
