06 03 2010

Today's image is a bit of a cheat as you will see it is a cropped image from 3 weeks ago, however it is a more or less accurate likeness of yours truly today in our match against Gwent B in the South Wales Hockey Division 3. The game was played in an excellent spirit and our opposition were well deserving of their 4-0 win
It was with a great deal of sadness that at the game we heard of the death of a great character and pal, Brian Tully - you can gain a good snapshot what type of person Brian was from the short piece written by another friend Dave Maas on the WHU website earlier in the week. Dave umpired our game today at which we held a minute silence for Brian.
I believe that looking down ( or up!!!) Brian would have enjoyed our encounter today. I believe he has organised himself a jolly good 'wake' at the Three Blackbirds following his funeral on 19th. Thank you Brian you were a gent and great drinking buddy.......... but often a frustrating umpire :-)


  1. Saddened to hear of the passing of a mate.

  2. It is very sad, but that's life isn't it? We all have our allotted time!
