VACATIONS AND CHANGES

BEN LOMOND FROM THE LOCH

I started to write this blog at the beginning of last summer to keep my hand in for when I began writing my column ‘From the Touchline’ for the 23rd year back in September. I was informed a couple of months ago that along with other columnists my musings would no longer be required in a rationalization of resourses at the Scarborough News. Therefore, my efforts have been hardly prolific this summer. To be honest, I lost interest for a bit and as usual I have been on my travels. A couple of trips to London then Edinburgh, Loch Lomond,  Oban and a great break at the Hilton in York have kept me busy although it’s been great following England in the Ashes via SKY and the internet. Tomorrow sees the third Ashes test and like the rest of you I’m excited at the prospect of us possibly retaining the Ashes with a good performance at Old Trafford.

 

Nearer home, I really enjoyed last Saturday’s feast of football at Silver Royd which was a credit to all concerned; I even managed to nip down and watch our cricketers in action before the big game at three. So what now?  As you will probably know I’ve had a couple of amputations of the digits on my right foot and am rapidly running out of toes! But you’ve got to hanging in there havn’t you? This has curbed my long distance driving and has made it difficult to travel to many Scarborough RUFC away games and consequently I’ve resigned as club PRO which I have been doing for almost 30 years.  Email and social media etc have made the post redundant I think but I’ll continue to do what I can for the club. So another four weeks and we’ll be into season 2013-14 and I will still be bringing you reports on Scarborough rugby in the Scarborough News and writing a piece in the match programme at Silver Royd. I promise to keep you up to date on any news from the club when I get it; however I’ve still got a few wee trips to do before the big kick off!
