Ferry Admits to Dividing Opinion

 

Tom Ferry (I think)

Tom Ferry has conceded he may not be a widely popular choice following his selection as Sunday Captain. 

Ferry was appointed into the role by a closed vote at the AGM controversially over Simon Butterfield.

“I’m not going to make everybody’s cup of tea,” stated Goring’s Ferry, who also claimed to be “very much wider now”.

Butterfield, said to be appalled by The Committee’s handling of the matter, called Ferry to back his leadership.

Ahead of the 2011 season, Ferry continued: “Simon phoned me, which was a very nice touch and goes to show what a great man he thinks he is.

“He had a 10-minute conversation and he wished me well. He cares about Goring. He was naturally disappointed, but said the most important thing was to keep whining.”

He added: “I feel for Simon. Even though I’ve got the maroon blazer, I can see myself we’ve got loonies in dressing room.”

Congratulations to Tom Ferry as new GCC Sunday Captain – with Simon Butterfield as Vice Captain.

    I would like to add that I am looking forward to batting and bowling “a bit” this season and expect every man to do his duty umpiring (exemptions for fat, middle aged, primary teachers).

    Sunday targets to follow for the season ahead. Though Wincott is expected to chip in with 1500 runs this season (2020 and Sunday games should make this a doddle).
