Extract from the Squire’s Report, 1989
Thelwall is an excellent side. The standard of dance is usually high, and the attitude is nearly always good.
What has made it an excellent side, apart from all the work put in by foremen over the years, is the continued habit of individuals and the side to recognise failings at least as much as successes - and to work at these failings.
Success doesn’t go to our heads, and we are never in danger of being overbearing.
Compared to many sides we are an unassuming bunch - and our lack of bumptious
confidence is healthy - because our justification is always that we should dance well, and our confidence finds its expression in dancing well.
