August 29, 2012 Fylde Veterans Men's Bowling League Message from Joe Barlow.
My reply to Peter Jose for awarding bloomfield the first division cup due to the Raikes team not turning up to play on the 22nd of August.
Its not so surprising we were not present on this date when you told us after we played in the semi's the final was on the 29th Aug.
You told all my team of the date not only myself.
Nothing even came on the website or was in the handbook about the date but you managed to send Bloomfield an E-Mail telling them it was on the 22nd.
No phone call or text message for the Raikes. Well as usual Peter you are so full of your own importance and your own opinion. You think you are incapable of making a mistake. Well on this occasion EIGHT players heard you say it was the 29th and we are adamant about that.
Captain Raikes Vets
