Crib club is seeking new players

NEW players are wanted by Elmer Crib Club.

The team play at the Elmer pub on Thursday nights from the end of August to the following May. Regular away games are played from North Bersted to East Preston during the season.

Club captain Geoff Blunden said: “We pride ourselves on being a friendly team and would welcome new members.

“Our age group ranges from 18 to 80 plus, with one of our, and the league’s, youngest members winning the single’s Shield this year.

“Crib is one of the oldest card games and is extremely popular in the USA where the internet is inundated with websites, with people playing against each other online. Also, it’s the only game you can gamble on in a pub without a licence.”

Newcomers need not worry about their level of experience, said Mr Blunden. Help would always be given by the other team members. Enquiries to or 07810 445943.
