A Day Never To Forget

 

 

On the day the Raynes Park Little League paid their respects to Colin Higbee, the Ospreys ran out winners in the 2014 Junior One Day Cup.

A massive crowd paid there respects in the sun

The day started out with every bantam, junior and senior team converging on our pavilion where our chairman Peter Brown spoke to the crowd about Colin, his achievements at the park and just what a wonderful, humble and friendly human being he was. The crowd were respectful and pensive as Peter spoke before a loud and raucous minutes applause was had in his memory. As the sun shone down on everyone at the park it seemed a fitting tribute to Colin who had spent several years with the League. His two children were present for the occasion and were seen speaking to the Sabres team before there senior match which they were present for.

On the same day, at a packed park, the junior teams took part in their yearly one day cup. What a day was had as lots of goals were scored and plenty of celebrations were seen. In the end there can only be two teams in the final (results to follow later this week) and this year saw the Ospreys defeat the Hurricanes in a hugely exciting finale which lived up to the final billing. As the Ospreys lifted the trophy aloft in the air, champagne was sprayed on the winners – and a few spectators too – as a very emotional and unforgettable RPLL day came to a close. A fitting tribute and finale to one of the best days seen by the league for years.
