Spread Eagle at one point in the season trailed The Fox by 12 points but whittled it down to 3 after beating Ab. Utd. ‘B’ 6-0.  The leg scores were 12-11, 16-10, 15-8.  For The Spread J.Bowler included a 6 in his 13, G.Brown 9, J.Simmons 8 (so he is human after all) & M.Phillips 7.  For Utd. ‘B’ S.Martin & D.Harris 9 each.  Norma managed just 1 doll.  And Helen, when people were calling out ‘it’s the white thing’ they didn’t mean the b****y ceiling.

p.s.  It’s going to be a very interesting final week of league matches as top of both sections still undecided and also the bottom of the ‘A’ section and as there are no provision in the rules for play offs  position’s will be decided on dolls scored.

2014 AGM

The Annual General Meeting was held on the 27th January 2013 at Abingdon United Football Club.

This year 19 teams and 35 players attended and the meeting got underway at 8pm sharp under the new Chairman Mr James Barguss. After the standard business of apologies (Mr B.Lacey), last years meeting minutes etc and the team register the Chairman gave his report which included a live demonstration of the new website and score system.

The balance sheet was accepted as a true record. It was noted that the introduction of the plaques had reduced the trophy bill by some £1000 however the new website cost £500 and sponsorship from Brakspear remains unforthcoming. The reports were adopted.

There were no formal proposals this year but in AOB Mr Graham Barguss proposed, due to the number of players succumbing to cancer and more recently the sad loss of Mrs Jean Brown our Secretary’s wife. a charity shield ‘pro-am’ pairs competition in aid of cancer charities to take place in the summer. 

With no further business the committee were elected enblock for another year.

The Meeting closed at 8:30pm.

Brian Collins, The Stickmaker was available with dolls, sticks and equipment to purchase. Now available are practice dolls complete with swivel attachment for £37.
