“Another Aunt Sally season is over, not overly successful in terms of results as can be seen from the league table published below but still very enjoyable, with good company and team spirit within the Star Team and some good opponents and nice pubs visited during the summer. Fifteen players played for the team over the season.
Once again Claire Sadler and Charlotte Cherry fought out the final of the leagues Ladies single final at The General Foods Club, with Charlotte retaining her title by two legs to one. Congratulations to them both and to Claire for being the most improved player in the Star Team this year.
The great success of the year was the challenge so readily accepted by S.W.A.G. to organise an afternoon of Aunt Sally and a barbecue in June. The response, with over fifty people from children, to those of us more senior, was most rewarding especially as it included many families. A village community event that will be repeated next year.
Finally, congratulations and our very best wishes to Tom and Chris as they become Landlords of the Star. They are both stalwarts of our team, so our future as a pub team looks secure, but just as importantly, The Star as a village meeting place.”
