Badgers’ dinner – Arms and the young woman
This year saw a select subset of the playing strength of the club along with
their other halves and a scattering of offspring gather in the back room of The
Kingswood Arms to celebrate
another successful season littered with milestones of one kind or another. The
awards part of the evening was also attended by
Amy, away in Loughborough at an
England training camp, via Facetime.
For the record, the trophies and mementos found their way to:
|Batting||Amy Gordon||213 runs @ 53.3|
|Bowling||Bill Jenkins||28 wickets @ 9.8|
|Fielding||Jake Gordon||20 catches|
|Captains||Rob Knew|| |
|Frank Butt||Darrell Pitts||(for his maiden ton)|
|‘Wang Fu’||Darrell Pitts|| |
|Mike Law Trophy||Matt Mann||(for his ‘demolished wicket’ dismissal)|
Mark’s speech included the usual whistle-stop tour of the season’s
games and key performances, a review of the lifetime milestones reached during
the year, the presentation to Darrell of a specially-embroidered shirt to
celebrate his first century (in lieu of the more traditional cap, which proved
impossible to source without purchasing a dozen of them) and a first ever outing
for a sit-down version of ‘Pittsy Bingo’.
For me two off the cuff comments represent the comedy highlights of the evening
– Amy’s anguished “shush, this is my bit” which rang out
clearly around a suddenly silent room and Ben’s deadpan “how come
he gets a trophy for coming second” following Mark presenting Matt with
the Mike Law trophy as the second ever hit wicket victim in club history.
