Fixtures and Squads 2017-18
All the fixtures are now on the website for the senior sides, and our Fixture Secretary Clive Insole is busy arranging times and pitches as we speak.

The captains are working hard selecting squads for the season and with University Leavers, New Joiners and New Youth players in the senior section there are a number of movements. If you are placed in a specific squad, this is not necessarily the team you will end up playing in, as the captains will use trials, training and friendly games to assess the teams for the League Games.

Please ensure you update your availability as much as possible and make the captains life’s a little easier, and if you cannot play because of the timing, please play for another side if you can. It all helps

If you do have any concerns, then please discuss with your club captains.
Men’s Stan Power
Ladies Helen Gilbert

Fundraising
The club is always looking for ways to raise money to help fund all sections of the club and we are always looking for new ideas. One way we currently raise money is Easy Fundraiser – by signing up to this, every time you buy online, the club receives a % of the purchase at NO extra cost to you. In the last year, we have raised over £250, though only 15 members signed up, imagine how much we could raise if more signed up. You can sign up HERE

We are also looking to re-launch the 100 Club as well as working on a Community Partnership Scheme with local businesses, so watch this space

The club is always on the lookout for new sponsorship, as we have a projects in the pipeline, as well as team sponsorship available. So if you are interested on hearing more, please let the committee know.

The Committee
