Team Selecta December 2004 Newsletter


2005 has arrived and a Happy New year to all of you, and hope you all enjoyed your holiday.


My memories of the Christmas period revolve around Boxing Day. It all started out so well as we boarded the York Minstermen coach bound for Scarborough in bright sunshine.


And to improve matters even more, I won a box of chocolates in the raffle.


An omen of good things to come, I thought to myself as in an unprecedented fit of generosity, unselfishness and goodwill to my fellow travellers, I passed the chocolates around the coach.


From that point on, things changed. Whether I disturbed the natural order of things by acting out of character I know not, but as soon as those chocolates left my hands dark clouds began to form in the sky and the wind got stronger.


By the time we were standing on the uncovered section of terracing (please remind me to thank my son for buying tickets for this area, I believe it was something to do with enjoying the proper atmosphere of football whilst standing), the heavens opened and subjected us to a full afternoon of torrential freezing rain and sleet.


As to the game itself, better left unsaid except that for the first time ever I witnessed a referee send off a player for time wasting whilst the team was 3 nil down. Oh happy day!!


Now on to the Team Selecta position at the end of 2004.


Its close at the top with David Craggs still at there with 479 points but with his lead cut to just one point as M. Race is breathing down his neck. Two points behind comes Paul Brenchner and in fourth place with 475 points is Neil Cushing.


If its close at the top its just as tight at the bottom.


J. Ammitage managed to escape from bottom spot and now sits third bottom with 342 points, whilst two points below is Janet Wilks.


So who is laying claim to bottom spot all on their own this month and who deserves to be stuck on an open terracing in Scarborough on a cold wet afternoon?


None other than S. Watson 2 with a miniscule 338 points. Youre well on the way to winning that I Love Scarborough mug! And you probably deserve it.
