Brats at 30

We had an away match on Thursday October 25th when we travelled over Them Thar Hills to Brats tent in Sheffield. We were invited to our sister tent to help celebrate their 30th University!! A mini bus for 16 travelled over to their meeting at The Harlequin where a warm welcome was received. An excellent selection of ales was on offer and a delectable curry pie, steak n ale pie or cheese n onion pie, with chips provided. A rousing rendition of 'we are the sons of the desert' by the packed room was fantastic!! Then the brilliant Andrew Craig Shepherd gave his final ever performance of 'The Fiddle and The Bow', a wonderful one man play he wrote and toured the country with. It has to be said Andrew has the mannerisms and comedy timing of the Boys off to a tee - we hope he may do a comeback tour someday (well, everyone else is doing it!!) A thoroughly enjoyable evening we hope to repeat in 2019. Hopefully we will get a piece of cake next time :o)
