GREAT thread, Jim.
Very envious.
What was that Zeugo pitch like to play on?
Nice to see the old fence surround.

Beautiful venue! What a great weekend.

I'd love to get a celly team, Jim.

Preferably done in the very first Melchester Rovers kit, or the 125 year celebration 'Red Sash' kit Saints recently had with gold bases would be nice.

The small ball makes a world of difference...its easy enough to chip though isn't it ?...if anything too easy I find...I can bend it too despite the words of an erm..ex-England star (Laughing )who insists it can't be done....(see classic bitter and twisted review of Mark Adolphs book on Amazon by some big time charlie serious chip on his shoulder competitive type Rolling Eyes )

I see an interesting thread elsewhere concerning blocking flicks featuring the games leading know all Laughing .. never used blocking flicks myself until 2010 or met anyone else who did for that matter...was that man ever a child ? I think not...
