FOURTH TEAM FUN AND GAMES

Clubman, having had a well earned rest for the past six months reports on his pals in the Fourth team.

The 4th team won all their matches before the pandemic, so at the moment are unbeaten in 2020, and the way things are going, are unlikely to get challenged.  During this extended period of rugby inactivity their emphasis has been on social events, with bike rides every three weeks, Rufus Dixon and skipper Jeremy Bostock being the route planners and pub seekers.  The next ride in 26th September and other Club players are welcome to join.

Everyone turned up to celebrate the 50th birthday of ex skipper Jason Walker at the Voodoo bar on Mill Street in August; even non- players who know Jason via the social tour to foreign climes were there to toast him – and hopefully a few more years on the rugby pitch!

Dave Cowans, who played all his cricket at Macclesfield Cricket Club, organised a rugby 4th team v  Cricket team over 40s and sons.  This was a great afternoon in the sunshine at the Victoria Road Cricket Club venue.  Many star oval-ball players demonstrated their inaptness with the willow, whilst others showed-off their transferrable skills.

Louis Smith scored 49, Rufus 35,  Simon Dempsey 30 and Paul Smith with 28 were the main contributors; the last named being considerably less voluble at cricket than when playing rugby!

It was good seeing Jim Welch’s son Matthew turning out, would have been even better if they could have occupied the crease together however not to be owing to Louis’ questionable umpiring decisions.  Jason at 50 took a wicket with his non spinning leg breaks and held a remarkable catch in the covers, and Nick Sidall was immaculate in the gauntlets behind the stumps.  Normally after a game Nick Smith will always claim the title man-of-the-match, but cricket is more a game of statistics, so even he had to acknowledge his shortcomings.

The result was a tied match, 139 each side, by the time of realisation a magic over was impracticable due to most of the rugby boys already retired to the bar (Well it’s sport, but not like the real-thing Ed).
