Mei­gle grand prize draw re­sults

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - THE BACK PAGE -

Mei­gle Cricket Club’s an­nual whist drive and grand Christ­mas prize draw was held in the Kin­loch Memo­rial Hall in Tues­day last week, car­ry­ing on a tra­di­tion started in 1923.

The event raised £1425 to keep the vil­lage sports club in vi­brant health go­ing into 2018.

With new 1st XI cap­tain Neil Wim­ber­ley un­able to at­tend due to per­sonal rea­sons, it was club pres­i­dent and for­mer b at s man Bi l l Mor t o n who thanked all those turn­ing out on an icy and cold night.

He re­minded those gath­ered that, de­spite an­other run­ner­sup place this sea­son, “there was no point cry­ing over spilt milk” given the tal­ent in the squad and es­pe­cially given the num­bers of boys and girls who are part of the buoy­ant youth sec­tion.

The whist ladies cham­pion was Mina Whitelaw, sis­ter-in­law of the late Ni­col Whitelaw who played for Mei­gle CC, and the gents winner was John Skea.

The main prize in the draw of a flat screen tele­vi­sion went to B Neave, with the two highly sought-af­ter Christ­mas ham­pers go­ing to Linda Mor­ton, of Bel­mont Place, and Ni­cola Drum­mond, of Park­side.

The club hopes to r un a beetle drive in the new year and in­door cricket ac­tion will recom­mence at Bell’s Sports Cen­tre in Jan­uary in readi­ness for the sea­son start­ing in April.
