ROSS MENS WIN GLOUCESTER DIVISION 2
For anyone who might not have heard, the Gloucester Mens team played a terrific match against their nearest rivals, Cleeve, on Friday which they eventually won 9-3. This meant that they won the league and will be promoted to Division 1 next season. Andy would be proud of them – a happy ending to their campaign.

You will all know by now the dreadful news that Andy died totally unexpectedly on Monday.
Andy has been a stalwart member of Ross for years and he will be sorely missed by his many friends at the club, and for his help and advice, always freely and generously given.
Andy’s funeral will be held on Friday, 7th March at Forest Crematorium, Cinderford, Glos at 12.30 p.m and all Ross members are welcome to attend. Anthea also told me that as Ross and his cricket club were his two main passions, as a family they have decided that it will be family flowers only and any donations received will be divided equally between Ross Badminton Club and Aston Ingham Cricket Club. The funeral directors are John Hall, Bulley, Churcham, Glos.

LAST WEEK WAS DEFINITELY A CELEBRATIONS WEEK FOR ROSS - TWO BIRTHDAYS AND A WEDDING - ALMOST SOUNDS LIKE AN IDEA FOR A FILM TITLE !
BELA – FRIDAY
Yet another celebration this week – yesterday was Bela’s birthday – but on pain of death I am not allowed to reveal his age, all I am allowed to say is that he is older than Rhiannon ! Happy Birthday Bela.
RHIANNON – WEDNESDAY
Rhiannon reaches the grand old age of 16, so Happy Birthday Rhiannon from all of us.
DING DONG - WEDDING BELLS ARE CHIMING
James and Elin are getting married this weekend – many, many congratulations to them. Hope it is a lovely day and the start of a long and happy life together. We think this is a first – although there have been couples at Ross in the past, no-one else has met, courted and married !

Two away matches in October so far – both wins for Ross. The ladies won 9 – 3 at Brockworth and the mixed team beat Kingpins 7 – 2. A good start – don’t forget that if you would like to send match reports, I’ll post them on the website for you.
