Pictures from Graham Shaw's return to Old Ys

Sun, 29 Dec 2013 12:00

The clubhouse seemed somewhat quiet after the departure of two coach loads of excited Mini and Junior section players and parents who travelled to Worcester to watch the Premiership fixture against Saracens and participate in the half-time entertainment. The afternoon's planned in-house game did not materialise due to lack of numbers. What were we to do to liven up the afternoon?

Well, Graham Shaw had promised to drop in during his flying visit from the U.S.A and he did not disappoint. Pints of Bitter Shandy were flying over the bar within moments of his arrival and the afternoon dissolved into fond reminiscences of our glory days in the late eighties. Some game videos from that era were also shown, prompting gasps of amazement at the sight of a slim legged Arkle in his multi-coloured shorts and causing much comment with regard to how little weight had been gained by most players in the intervening 24 years :o)
