Santa's Little Helper

Christmas Bazaar

The first Christmas bazaar held by PRT was a minor success raising nearly 400 on the afternoon. The Club would like to thank Mrs Stewkesbury and Mrs Males for their efforts organising the event and also the YMCA for their input, as well as all the club members who helped on the day. Grant Neven was a great sport in donning an elf costume in his role as Santa's Cornish Pixie (pictured right, click on image for full-size version), while TV's Steven Browne even put himself out by turning up on the premise of opening the event, but found himself in the role of kitchen hand for the afternoon.

Neville's Notes Returns!

With Christmas nearly here, what better way to prepare for the forthcoming festivities than by tuning in to the mind of Grant "Neville" Neven and enjoying an edition of his hugely popular (in his household at least) Neville's Notes. Treasure this as it's the first edition submitted to the site in two years, ironically the last one was a seasonal message of sorts, it's here if you wish to click.

AGM Fallout

A fairly good turnout at this year's AGM saw the official presentation of 500 sponsorship for the youth sides by Rupert Best of Portland Port, along with donations from the Grand Charity Fete to some local causes.

Chairman Conrad Cole announced he intends to end his term of office at the next AGM in 2006, while the rest of the club officials were re-elected to their posts. Membership fees will stay the same for senior players and unemployed/students, but the decision was made that junior players (under 16's) will only be charged 5 next season. Match fees will remain the same next year.

Last season's team captains agreed to continue with their roles, though the Sunday 1st XI mantle was handed from Alexander Charlton to Marc Nott, as Alex is looking to concentrate on his scuba diving next summer; while the PRT Evening League side will be led by Tom Cole with Tony Quayle and Dave Clifford standing down.


Under 13 Match Report, by G. Neven

Portland Red Triangle U13's vs. Bridport U13's

An experienced Bridport side won the toss and elected to bat in front of a good crowd at Redlands. Portland began well when a quick piece of thinking by wicketkeeper Christian resulted in the run out of a Bridport opener. Portland continued to bowl and field well against their more experienced opponents and with 2 Bridport batsman having to retire on 25 the innings closed on 136-3.

Portland's openers 'Rattie' and 'The Prof began well and after 4 overs Portland were well up with the run rate. A change of bowling brought 3 quick wickets and despite a solid innings from Scott (who was given out to a debatable decision) Portland fell short of their target and their innings closed on 96-5.

Coach Grant Neven nevertheless was more than pleased "All the team played well in what was their first ever match, the opposition coach was impressed with them and I personally could not have asked for a better effort, they can all be proud of themselves."


New Sponsors

Along with Portland Port sponsoring the youth side (see above), we welcome on board The Dorothy Inn's Steve Parker, who has joined our group of match ball sponsors for next season. PRT heartily recommends The Dorothy Inn for any touring sides looking to find accommodation while playing in the Weymouth area.

Dear Doidge Returns!

While checking through the site since updating the design many moons ago, we've only just discovered that young Doidge's problem page had been orphaned from the main site and lost to the few that actually bother to frequent this corner of cyberspace. Luckily this section is back up and running, and can be found by clicking on the features section of the menu. Ben is now available again to answer your questions (drop him a line by following the link on his page) and has already got back into the swing of things replying to a fresh query already.

JUNIOR NETS NOTICE

This week's junior nets at Royal Manor Arts College have been cancelled at short notice as the school is using the sports hall for exams, but only told us about this yesterday. At the moment it's for this week only, but check back here if the situation changes.

Presentation Night

This year's event was a great success, and well-attended by virtually all club members. Gary Randell was once again awarded the top batsman and Sam Polley the pick of the bowlers in the Saturday 1st XI, while for the 2nd XI, Tony Quayle won the batting trophy and to the surprise of many, Bill Gates was the top bowler. For the Sunday sides Dave Males was top 1st XI batsman, with skipper Alex Charlton securing the bowling trophy, and the 2nd XI saw veterans Trevor "Buster" Brown and Squeaker "Steven" Browne picking up the honours.

The evening league captains both named their players of the season, with Dave Males winning his second trophy of the night as Triangle's best player, and Dana Milverton as The George Inn's. Aaron Riley was the Young Player of the Year trophy, reflecting his progress this season and selection for the 1st XI; club secretary Grant Neven was awarded the Clubman trophy for his youth coaching and hard work behind the scenes, and Marc Nott topped the voting on the night as Players' Player.

Full Echo report, list of award winners, and picture can be viewed by clicking here.


School Partnership and Junior Nets

Portland Red Triangle has now established a partnership with Royal Manor school, and every Thursday evening, from 6pm - 8pm, our club coaches will be holding net sessions in the school hall. All junior members are welcome to attend, along with any senior players who wish to help out. Contact Stumpy for further details. Full Echo article can be viewed here

Newsletter

Over the weekend we launched the first PRTCC Newsletter, designed to keep players and friends of Triangle up to date with events during the long winter months. Those club members who filled in their email address on their membership forms this season should have received their copy already (except for Glyn and Lenny, whose addresses couldn't be reached, if they could confirm them again a fresh copy will be heading your way).

If you would like to receive a copy of future editions, then please fill in your name and email address in the box on the bottom right. Alternatively, if you found our periodical was not your cup of tea, then feel free to unsubscribe yourself from the mailing list using the same entry form below. You can also view the newsletter online by clicking here (future editions will be emailed only).


Presentation Night

If you haven't already purchased your ticket or have confirmed you're attending this Friday's event and will be paying on the night, please do so soon so we can finalise numbers for the buffet. If you haven't already been harassed on the phone by either Stewkes, Quayle, Stumpy, Conrad or even Alex Charlton, then contact any of these, or indeed Tony Morris, to reserve your place queuing at the bar or the buffet table - contact numbers available through the link on the menu.

The Blues Club at Portland United Football Club has been booked (the same venue as last year) for Friday 14th October. Tickets to this gala event are available and the prices are 10 for adults, 5 for juniors. For this measly sum you will have full buffet privileges, a disco and of course the usual trophies will be presented, including the always controversial Players' Player award, which is voted for on the night - previous winners include Dave Blackman and Simon Barrett.

Trophies

If any players still haven't returned their annual trophies (not the plastic replicas) please get in contact with Conrad or Stumpy, as we are still missing some which were handed out 2 years ago and have been unable to track them down (thanks mainly to someone not keeping a list of who actually was awarded them).


Sponsorship News

Portland Port's Rupert Best has kindly offered to sponsor next season's youth teams (there will be an U16 side running in 2006 along with the usual U13 team). New shirts for the youth side with Portland Port's logo will soon be available for this sides.

Charity Fete

Thank you to all club members who either gave up their time to help with setting up the fete, manning the stalls on the day or just turning up. Although the weather was against us, we still managed to raise just over 2000, which helps towards paying the ground rent and other bills next season, as well as enough to donate to some local charities in the near future.

Squeaker on Weakest Link
The Weakest Link?

Squeaker is the Weakest Link!

Congratulations to Steven "Squeaker" Browne on winning Monday evening's edition of the Weakest Link, scooping a jackpot of 1400. Triangle's Squeaker went toe to toe with Anne Robinson, literally discussing the price of fish with her (well, lobsters anyway). He also showed his depth of knowledge, correctly answering that Tom Cruise starred in the recent War of the Worlds film, Roger the Dodger was a character from the Beano and also revealing himself to be an avid watcher of Celebrity Love Island.

Friendlies

A new fixture date for your diaries, the now traditional game against The Gentlemen of The George Inn will take place on Sunday 18th September, against a Select XI chosen by Club Captain Richard Stewkesbury. The provisional line up is:

Richard Stewkesbury (Cpt)
Conrad Cole (VC)
Tom Cole
Dave Males
Scott Males
T. G. Waight (Wkt)
Bill Trevett
Tony Morris
Marc Nott
John Baxter
Keith Brown


7th September, 2005

Friendly Fixtures:

Just a quick note, the original dates for the end of season friendlies were incorrect, we are playing Leighton Buzzard this Sunday, 4th September and Abbotsbury on Saturday 17th September - the week after the fete - not as originally posted on this site and in the fixture cards. Contact Stumpy if you are available and want to play in either fixture.

Final League Update:

Jon Dixon
Jon Dixon

The Saturday 1st XI finished the season on a high note by beating Hamworthy Recreation at Reforne to make sure of their Division One status, while condemning the visitors to the drop. Jon Dixon (right) rolled back the years to record very economical figures with the ball, but failed to take a wicket, then smashed his way to one run short of a deserved fifty. Scott Males' prodigious swing bowling yielded 3 wickets on his return to the first team, while Jason Styles ended his Triangle career with 52, though surely he'll return with Gary Randell next season?

Meanwhile at Beaminster, Tony Quayle's 2nds suffered a crushing defeat as their hosts put them into bat on a damp track and a combination of fine bowling and some poor shot selections saw Triangle dismissed for just 78. As the sun shining and the pitch drying out, Beaminster made no mistake and lost only two wickets as they easily reached the target, with Quayle's men left with a solitary point and to rue another season that promised much to begin with, and then promotion slipped from their grasp.

With Alex Charlton absent, Marc Nott was handed the reins of the Sunday 1st XI for the trip to Lytchett Matravers and made a fine debut as skipper by losing the toss and then realising he'd left the scorebook at home. Luckily Marco recovered to inspire a fine fielding performance, restricting the home side to 208. After an extended tea while the conclusion of the test match was viewed, Triangle lost the early wickets of Scott Males and Tony Quayle, before captain Nott went in to steady the ship. Partnerships of 58 with Dave Males (29, who was distracted by the wild celebrations of Mr. Peter Tombs as Giles hit the winning runs for England and edged behind) and then 89 with John Ryan (37) looked to be heading Triangle to victory as the run rate was above the required, but the skip was undone by Horlock, and wickets soon started to tumble. Portland's last great hope Grant Neven was given out by Tony Quayle for a controversial (well to Stumpy) caught behind off the glove (via the shoulder), but the islanders were bowled out 22 runs short.

22nd August, 2005

Weekend Update:

The Saturday 1st XI all but assured their place in next season's Division 1 with victory away to Sherborne on Saturday. As both Fovant and Hamworthy lost, making this week's visit of the latter a much more comfortable affair. A fine fielding performance and not so fine batting performance by the hosts gave Triangle a modest target of 120 for victory, and Jon Dixon was back in the runs, top-scoring with 55 as Portland eased to victory.

Pete Tombs took charge for the first time in a competitive match for Triangle, leading the Saturday 2nd XI to a close victory against Puddletown. Dave Males continued to make runs with his new bat, posting a score of 94, and sharing in a hundred partnership with son Scott (30), before he was betrayed when Males junior triggered him just short of a well-deserved century. 242 proved too much for Puddletown to chase down, with the departing Bill Gates the pick of the bowlers with figures of 3-11.

Marco Nott, 135
Marco Nott, 135

Alex Charlton finished his last game as Sunday skipper with a win against Division 5 promotion hopefuls Cattistock in a high-scoring game at Reforne. Marc Nott finally broke through the 50-run barrier in weekend cricket with style, going not just to record his first half century for Triangle, but went on to score 135! John Ryan chipped in with a useful 50, while Dave Males (26), Bill Gates (27), Charlton (19*) and Lenny Hansford (8, retired - nose bleed) made up the rest of the mammoth total of 299, aided by 60 extras. Cattistock made a game of it, eventually bowled out for 270, and veteran Squeaker Browne - available due to the 2nd's bye week - took a hat-trick to finish the visitors off, on a torrid day for bowlers.

10th August, 2005

The Saturday 1st XI slipped back into the relegation battle with a loss away to Div 1 high-flyers Suttoners. Put into bat first at Dean Park, Simon Barrett's side made a less than inspiring 160/6, with Gary Randell again the pick of the batsmen, hitting 49* sharing partnerships of 38 with Dave Blackman (20) and 47 with Martin Hewson (28). Ben Doidge was injured shortly after his innings of 7 fine runs (out lbw), requiring a trip to casualty to sew up his eye (pictures available shortly). Triangle's one-man team (in the absence of Jan Davey) were led by Randell as he took 3-23, but Suttoners proved a bit too good, especially opener Chris Insall (83*), and knocked off the runs in just 25.2 overs.

In Tony Quayle's continued absence, the Saturday 2nd XI were once again led by Grant "Stumpy" Neven, and this week the rains stayed away as Bradford Abbas were beaten. A maiden half-century for Triangle by opener Chris Skinner (61) helped the home side on their way to setting a total of 210 all out. The resistance of the visitors captain, Steve Cake was finally broken by the flight and guile (and a loopy straight ball) of Bill Gates, and he was out just short of a deserved century on 92. After the talismanic Cake was gone (he left soon after to go to a party), Bradford Abbas were skittled. There were a few heated moments as "Cucumber" Neven disputed some close run out and stumping decisions with the youth umpires, but order was restored, and the reverend's fine form with the ball continued as he picked up 4 wickets. All-rounder Skinner chipped in by mopping up the tail to claim three of his own.

Alex Charlton's embittered side entertained fellow strugglers Lytchett Minster on Sunday and finally recorded their second win. Following up the previous week's impressive batting display where Dave Males hit 67, and Marco Nott thought he had hit his first 50 for the club before the game was abandoned, Triangle were almost back to their best beating Minster by 9 wickets. Graham Elenor, making a rare guest appearance on a stopover from his travels in the Far East, showed the Portland faithful what they had been missing as he characteristically dismissed the tail to claim another 5 wicket haul. Jon Dixon made short work of chasing down the meager total of 117, as he smashed his way to another 50, with Dave Males playing a fine role as ice to Dicko's fire. 20 points were in the bag, and Triangle moved off the bottom of Division 5 and closer to safety.

26th July, 2005

Weekend Update:
The Saturday 1st XI continued their recent mixed form, following their loss to Weymouth II with a victory against Marnhull at Reforne, thanks almost entirely to the return of spin king Jan "I bowl it into the batsman" Davey who picked up 4 wickets, and some other players chipped in with wickets and runs. This was all for naught as a Davey-less Triangle lost away to fellow mid-table promotion hopefuls Swanage. Ben Doidge finally found some form with the bat and hit 48, getting himself bowled before he could notch his first half century of the year, while Gary Randell continued his fine form with the bat with an unbeaten 72 as PRT set a target of 198 for victory. Despite Sam Polley picking up 4 wickets in a fine spell of bowling, Triangle were unable to keep the run rate down and Swanage won with 7 balls to spare.

Tony Quayle's 2nd XI are falling off the pace each week as they appear unable to find their early season winning formula. Recent defeats to promotion rivals Abbotsbury and Martinstown see Triangle residing in 4th in Division 7 (West) with their early season points average of just under 20 now down to just under 14 and almost 3 points off the pace. Ken Dodson returned to the fray against Martinstown to hit 49 (triggered LBW by Mr G. Bartholomew), while in comparison Tom Cole returned from his travels down under to slightly less acclaim and was bowled for single figures. Quayle's successful experiment in opening with Bill Trevett who hit 82 against Abbotsbury the previous week, backfired as he was out for a duck, and Dave Males ground out 17 runs from 30 overs as Triangle posted a gettable 183. Bill Gates showed Quayle what he had been missing by taking a hat-trick in an impressive 5 wicket haul, but alas the 2nds went down easily.

The Sunday 1st XI welcomed Dave Blackman back to the fold to strengthen their batting line-up and he duly did the business hitting a stylish 42 against Winton Sports. A familiar collapse followed as Triangle were eventually bowled out for 169. A dubious run out decision turned the course of the game, after the skipper had dismissed two of the top three order, and of course that man went on to hit 148 of Winton's 170 runs as the home side cruised to victory.

5th July, 2005

Apologies for the lack of updates, but hopefully the site is back on track for the rest of the season.

The Saturday 1st XI appear to have got over their early season blip, and have strung together a sequence of three victories, culminating with a win away to Beaminster this weekend. Half centuries from Simon Browne and the evergreen Gary Randell helped the islanders reach their target of 182 in the final over, moving them up to 6th in Division One away from the dreaded relegation zone.

Tony Quayle's 2nd XI continued their march to promotion from Division Seven (West) with a fine win against Old Blandfordians. An opening stand of 184 between Martin Hewson (93) and Bill Gates (67) in the Reforne mist allowed Triangle to post a daunting score of 225/6. Dave Clifford then claimed career best figures of 6-26 as the sun finally shone on a dismal afternoon, and the visitors were skittled for 86.

The Sunday 1st XI teeter on the brink of relegation from Division Five following their third consecutive defeat away to Gillingham 2nds. Alex Charlton's side posted a lowly 144 all out on the north Dorset artificial wicket, and then the home side proceeded to demonstrate how to bat on it by knocking off the runs in just under 20 overs. It could have been a different story if one of the five catches had been held. Sometime Saturday 1st XI 'keeper, Grant "Stumpy" Neven had to give up the gloves with what was later diagnosed as strained wrist ligaments, and may be out for 2 weeks.

Meanwhile, Squeaker Browne's Sunday 2nds pulled off a surprise victory as they claimed the scalp of previously unbeaten Division Seven leaders, Avon Social Club, by a close 15 runs. Trevor "Buster" Brown missed out on his first century of the season with a fine knock of 90, and good support elsewhere helped Triangle to their third win of their debut season.

10th April, 2005

Nets update: There will be two additional nets sessions at Royal Manor school on Sundays 17th and 24th April, from 10am - 1pm. The Club is looking to run some mid-week outdoor nets once the season gets underway, either at Triangle or using All Saints school's facilities.

Cricket Force: Thanks for those hardy few who attended last weekend's event to refurbish the pavilion and grounds, there is still work to do before the season gets underway, so any help at the weekend's will be appreciated. Thanks also to B&Q who supplied us with paint and building materials for the event, and those fine people at Portland Stone for donating a skip.

Memberships: These are still due and need to be paid up before the start of the season, the deadline is 1st June.

Fees are still only 20 for seniors, 10 for juniors/students/unemployed, this includes an affiliate membership to the YMCA and comprehensive insurance cover with Marshall Woolridge.

Under 13 Fixtures: The youth team's fixtures are now online and can be accessed by clicking on the link in the menu (eye's left).


27th February, 2005

Nets update: Nets now run from 10am - 1pm, with the extra hour at the start reserved for the junior members to have their own coaching session, with our qualified coach, Ken Dodson. Grant Neven and Jon Dixon will be attending Dorset Cricket's coaching courses later next month to attain their level one coaching qualifications.

Remember there are only 3 net sessions left at Royal Manor School before the start of the season - 6th March, 13th March & 20th March.

Memberships: There are still players who have yet to pay up their membership before the start of the season, though they are starting to trickle in. This season the cost is only 20 (still one of the cheapest in Dorset) which gives you comprehensive insurance cover as well as an affiliate membership to the YMCA. Remember if you're not a member by the cut off point of 1st June, then you will not be selected for any Triangle team until you do pay up.

Fixtures: All friendly fixtures are now online (see menu on the left).

Sponsors: So far we have match ball sponsorship from Hull Gregson & Hull, Wyke Regis Garage, Wessex Conveyancing and Phil Laming & Sons Ltd. If you know of any other businesses who would be interested in making a contribution to the club then please get in touch. Hardy's Signs of Dorchester have also kindly donated a new signboard for the pavilion to advertise forthcoming matches which should hopefully be up for the start of the season.

Fete: Tony Quayle has successfully negotiated with Phones4U to donate the first prize for the Summer Fete, which will be a top of the range phones and accessories up to the value of 1000. The raffle tickets themselves will also have a voucher printed on the back so you can get a discount in the Weymouth branch, proving more of an incentive to buy up those tickets!

Other News: PRT now has a "webshop" at www.buy.at/prtcc, where any purchases made through the links there will contribute a donation to our club. There are around 80 online stores that are participating in this scheme are Amazon, CDWow, Play, Comet so follow the links above and to the left to find out more.

In memorium: Our sympathies go out to the Adams family after the death of Vice President and former Triangle player Philip Adams, the funeral is this Tuesday (1st March) at All Saints Church, Portland. This unfortunately follows on from the passing of Graham's mother, Molly Elenor, who was tragically killed in a car accident last month.
