CCS5 vDunbar 27/1/17

On the day the much anticipated Trainspotting 2 was released we lost oor Derek who was otherwise engaged at the big screen on opening night. Derek will tell us if they can follow up with as famous iconic film lines as the original .....
Choose Life, Choose a job, Choose a careeer, Choose a family, Choose a .....####ing television - you had to see it to appreciate it!
Maybe Derek will have to update his Trainspotting taxi tour - visit Scotland's worst bog behind the bookies in Muirhouse, enjoy a few jars down the walk in the Central Bar, and finish off with a bit of shoplifting down Princes Street, and now adding some more sights from the new film.
You get the feeling that Trainspotting is the new Burk and Hare of Edinburgh - showing the real underbelly of our Capital City - a far cry from the biscuit tin image of Tourist Embra showing off our Festival, Tattoo, Castle, Hogmanay bash and old Lizzie's hoose down Holyrood way.
Enough of my rambling as there is an outstanding result to report as we defeated Dunbar who had skudded us five zip at start of the season.
Lynn was back from her hols in sunny Australia down under and started off in sound form getting her nose in front 2-0, until the Keane effect kicked in - yes change of marker and Stuart managed to inspire opponent Keith into action and was soon 2-2 before Lynn dug in and achieved excellent 3-2 victory.
After his usual NHS driven stressful week Adam must have spent a full ten minutes battering the poor ball in all directions in the warm up before finally actually playing a point. But his opponent - poor stormin Norman must have been put off as Adam stormed to solid 3-0 victory.
Mike powered his way past poor Martin with not a drop shot in sight but what's new and to be honest did not need any as the power play Plan A as usual did not need changing as the hapless Martin could not cope. Well done capitano as quick match allowed you time to step into the kitchen.
I had great match against Evan, from South Africa, going down 3-1 but each game could have gone either way with two of them going 17-15. I think I will suffer tomorrow as aching already.
Young Kevin Keane helped us out at number one but had difficult task against Joe Sugden - James the farmer. Kevin sneaked the first game but James kept the pressure on and poor blondie suffered thereafter and went down 3-1
After asking Kevin how footie was going he said managed to hilariously be duped by new team - after finally getting move from biggest team in Rosewell to the backwater of Haddington to help them out till end of season......he found out he had signed a contract for the next season as well......having signed paperwork without reading it or did not understand it and him being a student as well.....I sense a new agent coming soon!

Well enough nonsense from me and onwards to next week after excellent result tonight.

Cheers
Bob
