‘Our COVID -19 Two Tie-r Seniors Captain Carries On’
Due mainly to the exceptional circumstances of the Covid-19 restrictions with the issues that this brought about and to maintain common practice within the Club, it was unanimously agreed by all Committee members that the Seniors Captain Ian Coundon and the Seniors Vice Captain Barry Nicholas will continue in their role until the 2021 AGM. Seen here is the Seniors Captain releasing the honour of his 2020 tie and accepting that of 2021. In being the only Captain to hold a 100% Seniors Match win record, we wish him well for this coming year.
