Upton Victory Hall 'B' awarded Association Cup Final
After farcical scenes before the scheduled start on this evening's Association Cup Final on the Lower green at New Brighton Cricket & Bowling Club, Upton Victory Hall 'B' team were awarded the Association Cup because opponents Greasby could only field 6 correctly dressed players for the match. Greasby had unfortunately turned up with only 8 of their required players because of illness or injury and player non availabilty and of those 8 players, 2 were dressed in light brown or tan trousers. With 8 Executive Committee members present at the Final, a meeting was held with the 2 team Captains and Greasby were informed that because 2 of their 8 players could not play because they had failed to appear in the required black trousers, this left them with only 6 players left to play in the match. Having already having to give Upton a 6 shot start due to the handicap system, even if their 6 players had all won 21-0 they would still lose the match by 6 shots. The Executive Committee decided the match could not go ahead and awarded the match and the Cup to Upton Victory Hall B team. Both team Secretaries had been informed by email 7 days before the Final about the required dress code and Upton Victory Hall B were correctly attired but for some strange reason 2 Greasby players decided not to adhere to the code. A lot of organisation goes into staging our Cup Final's and to say that the Executive Committee were flabergasted by the events tonight would be a gross understatement. Whilst having every sympathy with the Greasby Club Captain and the illnesses and holiday commitments that robbed him of some of his selected players, the fact that 2 players completely ignored the dress code ruling, left us with no other alternative than to award the Cup to the Upton Captain, Peter Rattray.
