A light moment before yesterday's Ipswich Cardinals-East Kent Mavericks game when the visitors failed to shake hands with honourary captain for the day singer Sarah Probert so the referee sent the Kent captains round again:) The Cards were looking competitive and scored first but the Mavericks had some very nippy (and slippery) runners for a Cards 51 to 28 loss.

An absolutely cutting east wind across the Northgate playing field Sunday but a very encouraging 53 seniors and juniors for the Ipswich Cardinals new players session. These American football prospects try out both offensive and defensive drills with just a little padded contact. The Cards are doing it again next Sunday.

We last saw Common Ground Theatre in Aldeburgh where their four handed Justin and the Argonauts was well routined and getting plenty of laughs, especially from the appreciative Hertfordshire holiday maker next to us. The company's current show The Unhappy Medium has been on the road since the beginning of the month. The tour is winding down but it can be seen tonight in Laxfield and a Saturday matinee has been added to the three day run next month at the Sir John Mills Theatre Ipswich.
