Adult friendlies 01.09.18

BBQ day down at the Hood, interspersed with some football. The latter of which wouldn’t have been possible without the efforts of Dave Golding this morning, who filled in some nasty cracks with top soil. A big thanks to him and his crew of helpers. Onto the football, and the 1s went down by a cricket score, 11-0 (some reaction from the manager in the pics below). 2s went down 3-0, 5s won 3-1 (Pete, Dwayne and an OG the goalscorers) while the 6s drew 3-3 – the highlight of which was a Roberto Carlos-esque free kick from Reece Szreider. 4s oppo did a no show.

The results – The Plaistow boys Colin and Ed walked off with all the major prizes Colin won the best individual, Tom Rowe was second and the pairs won the better ball aswell. Sherbs and CJ were second and Sherbs won the long driving contest to almost universal acclaim and admiration. Nearest the pin was Dane Satterthwaite on a near-impossible green to hit.

Your club needs volunteers ……..

Calling all you guys who care about your club! As you know we are funded solely by our members & cash is hard to come by.

Our landlords Merton council are reluctant to commit to spending money on improving our building at Joseph Hood. Therefore we are left to do it ourselves.

This summer we would like to decorate the clubhouse, dressing rooms and other areas both inside and out. 

To keep costs down we are appealing to you as caring members of your club to help us improve your Saturday home ….

It is not important what skills you have, just help out with all kinds of jobs. 

There are a few minor electrical jobs as well as some plumbing. The main issues are painting, cleaning the outside & the fencing …

If you can spare a few hours to help, it would be very much appreciated by all. 

The club will of course provide refreshments & snacks to keep you going…..

Paint, brushes, rollers, cleaning materials etc’ will also be provided by the club……

If you could let me know if you can help and when, I and the members will be so pleased that you all helped to make the Hood a better place to be on a Saturday afternoon/evening …..

No matter how you can offer your support will be fantastic….

Please contact me (Dodge) [email protected] or 07879546090

Thanking you all in anticipation 


Yours in sport,

Pre season Training – 18th July 2018

Calling all you fine Mertonians, it’s time to shake off the summer bellies as pre-season training commences on WEDNESDAY 18th JULY at our beloved Joseph Hood Recreation Ground (SW20 9BU), starting at 7pm, and finishing at 8:30pm. All newcomers interested in joining the club are welcome to attend too.


Training will be the usual mix of fitness, drills and a practice match, and you are advised to bring your own kit (bibs will be provided), and suitable boots for what is likely to be a firm grass pitch.


Training will run every Wednesday thereafter at the Hood, while Saturday pre-season friendlies get under way from Saturday 4 August (season proper starts early September). That gives you three weeks to whip yourself into respectable shape, so that we can start the season on the front foot!


Look forward to seeing you all then, as we embark upon what should be another highly enjoyable year for our great club…
