The Wooden Spoon Lunch at Anfield on Friday 22 November was a great success.

Our very own Dick Greenwood was MC for the event continuing his long term support of the Wooden Spoon Charity. 
Guest Speaker Eddie Butler gave a very entertaining and poignant speech.
Half of the Merseyside Wooden Spoon Committee is currently made up of Waterloo past players - Ged Poynton, Roger Hughes, Dave Reid and Gill Burns. 
Current Firwood Waterloo players - Annie Brewis, Becky Saffrey, Hayley Sasserath, and Dara Wilson were present continuing Firwood Waterloo’s Women's Section partnership with the Wooden Spoon Charity by helping run the raffles and auction. 
There were also many more Waterloo stalwarts at the lunch, too many to get in one photograph. So, from left to right in the photo above we have 
Gill Burns (Past President and current Lancashire President), Eddie Butler (Wales and the BBC), Mark Flett (Past President), Christine Braithwaite (Women's Section Chair), Dave Crank (President), Jacky Arch, Dick Greenwood (Past President), Jane Harrison, Phil Cooper (Board Member - Treasurer), Helen Cox, Stu Turner (Head Coach), Jane Tarpey, Tracey Coffey. 
And the front row, current Firwood Waterloo players - Annie Brewis, Becky Saffrey, Hayley Sasserath, and Dara Wilson.
