So the first day went pretty well;
6 games played- won 4, drawn 1, lost 1
Not only did we beat some pretty decent opposition, the weather was lovely all day. Even the early start (4.30am for most of the team) didn’t dampen our Pirate spirit. Talking of which Nadine had to sink a few after injuring her achilles half way through the third game, Marines had to soldier on with her painful knee and Bola’s ankle was growing bigger by the hour.
In typical Pirate fashion we all headed to the clubhouse for showers, pizzas and beers and the crappest band I’ve heard in a long time. They literally murdered all the cover songs at high volume and the break was definitely the best part of their gig. At 11.30 Josie, Chris and myself headed back to Josie’s parent’s house leaving Donna, Fiona, Marines and new arrival Phil to head to their tents for the night.
