Being captain of Steventons pool team is something I’m very proud of and all I want is for that team to first and foremost to do well and win things but never to the detriment of having fun. At times the latter I have struggled with when I have allowed emotion to over power what I\we are trying to achieve to which I always regret!
My frustrations though have nothing to do with emotions it comes from wanting to get a team together to discuss next season and where we are going to play because Steventons club is closing down. Everyone has an opinion and most have a preference some give the impression that they have already decided where it should be but all say to me have you sorted anything out yet?
Over the last couple of weeks I have invited all to tryout Kings Arms but have ended up in there with Vic the only team member that can be bothered to turn out. Prince of Feathers in Winsford, Kings Arms in Middlewich, Bears Paw, turnpike the list goes on to where each individual member lays there preference…yet no-one wants to get together to discuss it they all just text me to tell me I don’t like that one because or I wont play there because….
Even at the presentation evening on Friday night where we were picking up our first team winners trophy for over a decade members for whatever reason didn’t bother turning up to receive their trophy? Those who were there, chatted amongst themselves and some with me about the future venue and some talked extensively to one landlord who has never said one word to me….
Then after all that they’ll say “WELL, HAVE YOU SORTED ANYTHING OUT YET?”
