The new men’s and ladies captains were welcomed into their new roles during Saturday’s traditional drive-in ceremony. Rick Rankin is the new men’s captain and Irene Crook is the new ladies captain. Rick, one of the leading players in the club, is hoping for a better deal than the outgoing captain Kevin Meehan, who spent most of his captaincy in lockdown!
Rick’s first drive, as captain, wandered into the right-hand rough and the final destination of the errant ball was correctly guessed by trustee Ian Burrows. Irene’s drive was slightly straighter, and it was Ralph Bartlett who correctly guessed the final resting spot of the impressive drive.
Rick and Irene will be assisted by their respective vice captains Nigel Ford and Rosemayre Barry. Barry Hayers will continue in the roll of Veterans captain in 2021.
