Half way through the Ladies’ Winter League, it is still “all to play for” as five of the teams are jostling together for the coveted top spot on the table.
That is except for Lily’s License to Kill team!! They have consistently coveted bottom place, and risk being thrown to the sharks -Felix Leiter style! Star player, Pam Morrow is probably tempted to run away- but as Gladys Knight says- you’ll never escape once I get my sight on you!! Brenda Gallery made a great attempt to revive the team last week, but it will require all the luck from Casino Royale to catch up with the rest of the field before prize night.Grizel’s Goldfingers seem to have had a word with the man with the midas touch as they have had a couple of good weekly scores to pull them up the ranks. However, Sheena’s team have gone into skyfall- perhaps upset after seeing photos of Daniel Craig recently in the press. Apparently his new daughter has succeeded where countless Bond villains have failed, leaving the star distinctly shaken and stirred and definitely in need of a Quantum of Solace!
Using their cover of a travelling circus Oly’s Octopussies are smuggling decent scores each week and haven’t yet needed to call on the skills of the knife throwing twins. Tara’s Thunderballs must have had another threat form Spectre and continue to perform well while Margaret’s Moonrakers remain spaced out with an astronomical lead of half a point!
Individually some Ladies are consistently trying to catch the eye of Chubby Broccoli and stand a good chance of an audition as a Bond girl- or Miss Moneypenny at least. What Liz Denver and Christine Maguire must have said after failing to win a Faberge egg, despite high scores, is for their ears only. Club stalwart, May Baxter stands a good chance of grabbing Judi Dench’s coveted vacancy as M. Raoul Silva would be mad to mess with her!!
