Sincere thanks to all who took part on the events.
Hope to see you all at the Annual Dinner an we hope to see some new names at the meetings next season and new names amongst the winners.
The Annual General Meeting of the COBA Golf
Society, took place on Thursday 30th March at West Derby Golf
The attendance was less than we would have hoped for but all were true stalwarts of the Society. Top of the apologies for absence list was Paul Davies, last season's Captain, who is currently working in London.
The formalities were completed with reports from the Treasurer and the Hon Sec. both of whom were rewarded for their hard work, by being re-elected for yet another year !
The Captain for 2017 is Ray Threadgold. Ray has been a member for many years and this is the second time that he has held the office.
The future of the Society was discussed at length. It was agreed that we should remain as an Old Boys section, but continue to encourage members to bring guests along, to make the events numerically viable.
Twilight golf on selected Thursday evenings, which were quite successful last year, will continue.through this year, courtesy of West Derby Golf Club. The green fee will continue at £10, so with sandwiches and nominal prizes, the cost will be £15, a real bargain !
The Sunday meetings will have the 1st tee reserved at 2.00pm. The cost will be approx. £25 which will include green fee, a two course meal and nominal prizes.
(YOU KNOW, AT
THESE FEES, IT WOULD BE WELL WORTH ANY GOLFER TO PAL UP TO A MEMBER,
JUST TO GET A REAL BARGAIN. - WEBBY)
I would be very happy to hear from any of our readers who may have some ideas or suggestions that might make our golf society a bit healthier.
Collegiate Old Boys Football Club was founded in 1909 to provide old boys of the Liverpool Collegiate School with a continuing football facility.
Membership of the club is now open to non-old boys of the school, and new members are guaranteed a warm welcome.
We currently run three Saturday teams and one Sunday team. We cater for all ages of male players from 16 years of age upwards.
All three Saturday teams now play in the Liverpool Old Boys League, respectively in divisions two, three and four. Our Sunday team, the Casuals, plays friendly matches against like-minded sides.
Our first team plays its home games at Holly Lodge, West Derby. Our second and third teams play home games at the Bill Shankly Playing Field in West Derby, Liverpool 12. The Casuals play their home games at the Merseyside police Club in Riversdale Road, Aigburth. Social arrangements are enjoyed at the Collegiate Bohemians Club on Queens Drive, near to the Jolly Miller public house.
The management teams for season 2017/18 are as follows:
David Cadwallader (Manager) and Craig Milton (Assistant Manager)
Graham Kehoe (Manager) and Mark Bargery (Assistant Manager)
Tony McGlynn (Manager)
Brian Goldsmith (Manager)
Club's Annual Sportsman's Dinner took place on Friday, 24th March at
Old Swan Conservative Club, Derby Lane. An enthusiastic gathering
of current and former players, Club officers and committee members and
a range of friends enjoyed a splendid meal before being royally entertained
by two excellent guest speakers.
An indication of the importance of the event as an annual reunion was the distance travelled by a number of those present. Peter Andrew travelled from Somerset, Alan Allister and Bill Rigby from Berkshire, Dave Hughes from Cheltenham and Keith Wilkes from Cumbria.
Particular thanks are also due to former players, Jim Healey and Peter Horn, who organised partiess of 17 and 11 respectively, and Jim Morrison of East Villa FC, who mustered ten of his pals to enjoy the occasion.
Ex-Wolverhampton Wanderers and Manchester City player, Steve Daley, had the whole room in stitches as he regaled them with an hilarious, self-deprecating summary of his playing career. Liverpool comedian, Lennie Anderson, then completed the festivities with an equally brilliant delivery to leave all comers with broad smiles on their faces.
