Wealthy club chairman Dave Frost delivered a chilling outburst last week as the club approaches a critical AGM.
“We need to start winning, or heads will roll,” threatened Dave, after hearing that the club finished next to bottom at last week’s league fixture meeting.
“We start the season early due to the Olympics and the Hucknall away draw in the Handicap Cup is not the kindest. We need to get it right fast.”
Richard Sellors will learn on Sunday if he is to be offered a contract to coach the club next year after taking temporary charge in the early season.
“I have tailored training with a view to me staying. It would be a better opportunity for me to prepare and start the season unlike this year. I did hear a few in the crowd at the last league home game shouting “Sellors out”, but after my parents left the viewing area it seemed to stop.”
The club this week says hello and farewell to different connections. The Black Hippo becomes the latest local business to sponsor the club, much to everyone’s delight. Jon Clarke, on the other hand, leaves to work in France for six months.
Jon, having just completed his first season of polo at the club, is concerned on two counts.
“I don’t think they play polo over there and boules isn’t quite the same. It also means converting the Porsche to a left hand drive.” The Renault was on standby at the time of going to press.
