Hamburg visit

The Jackson Fives group recently visited Hamburg for their ninth overseas trip and although a match could not be arranged with local opposition the 10 team members managed to book a sports hall for 90 minutes and played three half hour sessions with the ‘home team’ in maroon winning by 2 games to 1.

Doug Samways made his debut in goal and his unique style was extremely effective.

A thoroughly good weekend was enjoyed by all and next years tenth trip is already being planned. Unfortunately, longstanding team member Keith Allan could not manage this year due to a family bereavement.

The ten members of the group who went to Hamburg were: Tommy McLellan, Jim Johnston, Stephen Taylor, Doug Samways, Chris Stephen, Tony Zaccarini, Jim Glennie, Willie Young, Dave Pittendreigh and Robert Buckley.
