Report by John Auld
The new season started against strong opposition. We snatched defeat from the jaws of victory in the Dawes match but had a strong performance in the Porter whilst conceding the Markham.
The teams with Butler imps scores were:
William & Daniel Crook - 11
Frank Ball & Steve Raine 19
Irene & John Auld -12
Lloyd Eagling & Keith Rodgers -1
Ian Dovey & Shirley Ashtari 0
Bill Whalley & Pravin Taylor 26
Gordon Fullerton & Graham Lee 24
John Rolph & Bernard Moore 17
Tim Anderson & Bernard Scanlon -14
Janet Jacques & June Marron -16
Toni Smith & Anthony Pettengell 9
Wendy Walker & Nick Clarke -32
Well done to the Porter team with Pravin & Bill just best.
Part of the games fascination is that 48 good county players can get so many things wrong.
