Gerry Huskisson

I am sorry to record that Gerry Huskisson, who was a well-liked member of St Andrews Badminton Club some years ago, passed away on 8 February 2011.  Some of the older club members who knew him paid their respects at his funeral.

Gerry was club secretary for a considerable period and relinquished this position in 1981 due to work commitments abroad but returned to play at the club, mainly at a social level, a few years later.

Most of the current membership will not remember Gerry but I would like to take this opportunity for us to recognise his contribution to the history and continuance of our club and offer our condolences to his family.

17/2/2011 E Team V Hawks F – Lost 4-14

Against the top team in the division  we knew we were in for a battle.
A 14-4  defeat was no disgrace   as only our D team  has won more than 4 games in a match against this team so far this
season. It was also good to see that every member of the team contributed to
the 4 games. We were actually only 6 points away from taking another two games off
them in the first men’s doubles. Taking a point off them would have done our D team a real
favour but unfortunately it was not to be.

The E team have quite a few games left to play so lets hope they can climb
the table a little by the end of the season. A good win over nearest rivals
Hawks G in the next match  would be a really good start.
I enjoyed being back among the action again.

St Andrews D vs Whittle B Phillips Cup

Team : Sam, Colin, Dave, Lucy, Janet, Charlotte

Result : Win 189-65

Did not expect such a comprehensive win. It was a really great performance to win so many games from division 5 players while giving them an extra serve. Well done everyone. Dave and Charlotte won all their games on the night, Sam and Lucy contributed the biggest point difference with 53.
