Whitbread Cup - Beer Club V Gerrard B - 30th April 2013.
The draw was made and we were off with Little John taking on Steve in a close game and it proved to be that Steve was the better player on the night winning 6-9. Next was Jackanory James were he continued his debut season with a good win over George 9-5. Lanky Sam stalwart of the team was in disappointing form and succumbed to a 3-9 defeat. Badger did not have a good game at all losing to Jen 0-9. Could Capt meme stop the riot “you bet” he won as he beat mike in a close game 9-6. Last to play was woody who needed to win to force a play off. He was playing Dave with those mysterious X-ray specs of his which unfortunately gave him that edge wining 5-9. That means we had lost 2-4 and our cup run which had been so good for the past few years had come to an end.
Next week we are away to the Royal Clarence A where we will need all the luck and as much divine intervention we can get? After our recent run of form we will do our best there is no doubt of that!
Beer Club V Ship Castaways - 23rd April 2013.
We are sailing or is it sinking - Captain Meme Reporting
Samwise of Ganges AKA Lanky Sam was due to make his first journalistic debut of the season.
Things don’t always run according to plan and as a result of his work load preparing for his verbal assault on the ear drums of the unsuspecting about his trip to the land of the Bombay b*m, India of course he has been unable to create a masterpiece on a par with great authors?
That means you’re stuck with the superb writing skills of Capt Meme full of great punctuation, grammar and speling of course.
The tide was far enough in for the Ship Castaways to sail over from Axmouth following the smell of the alcohol and drop anchor at Beer.
Jackanory James partnered by Woody (Trevor) who was playing for the first time this season after returning from his visit to Lanky Sam in that continent of the falling trousers and toilet rolls, and celebrating deliveries from the stork within his family.
The spectators were all gathered in the gallery eagerly awaiting the contest to commence. The honours were evenly shared in the early exchanges with the scores standing at 3-3 the Ship changed gear and sailed away to a 3-9 victory.
The daring duo in the guise of Sparky and Capt Meme locked grappling hooks with Terry and Pete.
Cannons blazing and cutlasses at the ready we boarded the piste and launched our first salvos the Ship returned fired. This see saw battle continued with neither side gaining any advantage ending in six points apiece.
Beer’s shots began to find the target with greater accuracy blasting the Ship into a 9-6 defeat.
Badger and Lanky Sam were the last of the pairs to play in a race to drop anchor against Dave and Chris.
The club’s duo made a cracking start taking the lead and extending it Chris and Dave decided to have another drink and that did the trick. They clawed their way back taking end after end until they had taken a slight lead. This proved to be decisive point for the Ship taking the remaining points required to triumph 6-9 and go 2-1 up in the match.
On to the triples and it’s Sparky, Jackanory James and Woody verses Nick, Pete and Alan. The contest got underway with the Ship cruising away and establishing a healthy lead over Beer’s trio. The boys reply was to take the next two ends and two points. Just as they were getting back in the swing of things they made a disastrous turn, jibed the Ship took full advantage running out 2-9 winners.
Three one down and the match lost for the third time this season in three matches. Could Beers trio turn things around and make the score 2-3. I’m sure Dave, Chris and Terry would have a different outcome in mind.
In these times of recession we all have to make cut backs so instead of the three tenors the club would have to make do with the three four pound fifty’s namely Badger, Meme, Lanky Sam in order of play. The Ships armada set sail to try and scupper us before we left port so to speak for the last game of the night.
Beer’s thirteen pound fifty worth won the first end two nil only to see the Ship unfold the spinnaker and pull in front to lead 2-4. It was not going well for the clubs trio but a cunning change to their tack ticks saw them change the order of play to Meme, badger and lanky. This worked as we won the next end had the tide began to ebb for the ship with the current now flowing in Beer’s favour. Yes, as we won all the remaining ends to win the game 9-4, Congratulation to the Ship who had still won the match 3-2. A close game which could of swung either way though a good time was had by all
After clearing away everything we headed for the bar with the charms of Ashley the barman and to devour the sandwiches of big Kim made by his own fair hands?
Next week the Whitbread cup as we take on the Gerrard B for the second time in nearly as many weeks.
