christmas competition winner ivan

Well done Ivan Anderson who won our Christmas photo competition with 19.5 points. Great score from the former Ireland and Waringstown all-rounder, who obviously has a good memory and appreciation of the game he graced with so much aplomb for several decades.

 We had two 2nd places just a half point behind in Robin Haire and Dean Simpson. Both were wily campaigners in their day, but were caught out by the photo of Tom McMurray in the 1930s, a little before their time. Tom was a fine cricketer and footballer, who later coached at Campbell College.

 A bottle of wine is on its way to all three.

  In the meantime many thanks to everyone who participated.
