The Presidents Trophy

The Presidents Trophy

 

As part of the Presidents’ 50th birthday celebrations we created a new competition to be played on the Sunday nearest to Foz’ birthday each year.

The trophy was very kindly donated by Corin Medical who manufacture joint replacement products – hopefully something that Fellow Dodderers will never need.

Following the unveiling of the trophy, we settled down to a four team leauge. Foz’ team was made up of Founder Dodderers, An ex University Rugby, & family fozzies. The other teams were handpicked using the time honoured method of ‘randomly’ handing out tabbards.

It wasn’t long before Foz turned the event into an exhibition match, given the opportunity to show off his many and varied skills…

 Soon it became apparent that Kiwi was rivited to the spot by this demonstration….

Towards the end of the league games Foz was showing the signs of ‘Early Onset Dodderery’ seen here making an early dive for the line when it’s nowhere in sight….

In the end it was a close run thing, with The Captains’ team and the Presidents’ team equal in the league. On countback though, The presidents team came out on top! 
The morning ended with Cake and Champagne which Foz helpfully polished off….
