New 3rd Team Captain
At last weeks AGM Rob Aplin was officially confirmed as 3rd team captain for next season with Mike Phillips his vice captain (Both shown above). Rob's experience includes captaining the coin operated boats at Bude Caravan Park.
It is also believed that Mike Phillips ancestors captained the Spanish Armada and the Titanic. Mike claims to know the difference between an iceberg in the sea and a Rock on a rugby field - The iceberg moves faster !
Former 3rd team captain Peter Thompson who went to watch the Titanic leave port in 1912 but missed it because he had to be home by 7.30pm welcomed the news of Rob and Mike's appointment.
Hard working school teacher Thomo (His words not mine!) wished Rob and Mike his best wishes for the forthcoming season and then went on about how much teachers deserve their long school holidays.
What about all those INSET days as well, more like " In The Pub days "
Wivey secret superhero Bananaman speaking on behalf of the Wivey 3rds fan club commented " Credit to Rob and Mike but they are no Ivor Biggun."
"Like Bananaman, Ivor has great superpowers and he has the ‘equipment' of an elephant unike Mike an Rob - yeah, I looked in the showers once - but you should really ask Catwoman if you want the down and dirté on that aspect of his superpower. I'll say no more…"
