Leek ladies past captains held their annual competition Tuesday 9th June, in combination with the Centenary Cup, and traditionally sat down for a meal together. Sixteen of us sat down and immediately the banter started to flow as, typically, Jan (Moss) broke the ice by speaking out, “Come on Jayne what have you got to say?” A variety of comments were chipped in as I listed all the attributes that previous Lady Captains had contributed to our Ladies’ section over the years and hilarity rang out as I mentioned, ‘efficiency and organisation of events’ and Chris (Birch) loudly announced – “THAT’S ME!!”
During coffee I was delighted to present Joan (Clowes) with a beautiful bouquet from the ladies section, having just celebrated a special birthday!
The winner of the Past Captain’s Trophy (with Net 76) was Maria (Wootton), who received the customary sleeve of balls (the Trophy to be presented at our Christmas celebrations).
