Richie Benaud once said, “Any captain can only do his best for the team and for cricket. When you are winning, you are a hero. Lose, and the backslappers fade away”. Well our Captain Gary Corcoran must have been winning at the weekend given the numbers who turned up for Day 1 of his prize, such was the respect for the man. The participants all started with dreams of hallowed immortality, but as usual some were delusional. The leaders at this half way point are Paul Bates, Peadar Gill and Canice Hogan. Buts it’s a long road yet, and many a good man has exploded on Day 2 so watch this space.
Remember we will be having a joint presentation with the Lady Captain, meal and band in the Riverside Hotel Virginia on Friday August 26th at 8pm, tickets will be on sale next Sunday.
