Recap

A balmy late summer / early autumn evening at the Becket. For our season opener, we were graced with the great and good from the Cock ‘A’, who took on the Becketeers on a lush green top. Described as a cross between a Rubik’s cube and a devilish Augusta flat-top in March; the table was a manageable puzzle. A lack of big breaks did not deter the patient. With furrowed brow Ian Street proved his pedigree with a relatively easy win over Theo Heley to open the evening. Ian ended with what turned out to be the highest score on the night too, with 4,580. Meanwhile, Theo – having returned from the summer break, hit a creditable 1,370 in his first game back. Game 2 saw the awesomely experienced Mr Chairman; Tony Britten, tickle and poodle about up top with Lenny Bayton. It was not entirely pretty; but an amusing aside. Tony eventually winning out by a smidge under 1,000 points. I shall gloss over the events of the third game; other than to mention that Mary never recovered from pinning the opening break shot. With yours truly hitting a purple patch early doors; this was the most one sided encounter on the night. 1 – 2. Game of the night was Andy Roberts against Dave Sadler. I’d generally put my shirt on Dave working out a tricky top – but not so tonight. Andy (also returning from the summer break) continued his late season form from last winter – a steady break of 1,200 gave him a lead which Dave could not wipe out. 2 – 2. Wiley old fox Jim Thomson was too good for Ray Crawford in the final match. Jim got close to matching Ian’s score on the night and won comfortably. A subdued Ray was unable to trip him up.
Good to be back. A new season underway, with many interesting challenges to come. Next week we travel to the Headlands and seek to gently prod The Storm into abeyance. Wind from sails, give em Gaviscon!
