Well, although I had hoped for a win I genuinely thought 2-2 and last game win for either side, I wasn't expecting a total batting collapse from the burners, to be honest they were unlucky, apart from gentleman Dick, none of them had the rub of the green. Even Jim managed to avoid a Black Peg!! A great night with the burner boys and they were as usual very sporting. Apart from having the occasional peek on here and no doubt stirring things up this will be my final report as I'm hanging the old cue up for good. Thank God I hear you all say as you can now enjoy a quiet evening without Gobby Vern. Good luck to you all for the coming seasons
Hi Vern, Your excellent 'last' report will be incorporated into the special report on Finals Night on the bespoke BHBBL website.
Re hanging up the old cue for good, I'm sure this is said with the utmost sincerity - but speaking as one who planned similar a couple of years ago I'm sure you'll be back - when you realise (as I did) that, quite simply, life's too short.

Well, that didn't go quite to plan...! To say we lost would be something of an understatement...., we were stuffed, tonked, hammered, K.O'd, ....etc. There are no excuses. The table played brilliantly. (although it felt slightly too long in a couple of games!) As a result of the outcome we have decided, as a team, to hang up our cues. For a couple of weeks at least ! - we're neat and tidy you see..! We will of course be back next season..... after all, there's the Team Cup Plate Runner's Up trophy to defend....
Well done to the Roffey SSC Team, a convincing win. Thanks to Alfold SC for the plentiful food.
