Clubhouse make over

Wonderful scenes (and a mixture of physiques) at the Hood on Saturday, as Denys and his willing team of helpers head down to give the Hood a refurb. A big thank you to all who came down, and also a gracious request to you all to pop down for the next installment (free beer vouchers are part of the deal). Contact Denys to find out how you can help him improve our beloved clubhouse…

Last Man Standing

Time is running out to join our new Last Man Standing predictor game. Cut-off to join is 5pm on Friday (as the first Premier League game is on Friday night). Remember, it is a £5 entry fee (winner takes 70% the pot, rest to the club), and you make your picks through the Tippd app Contact Darren Avey via private message, email or text to get involved.

In order to make the £5 payment, you need to be signed up to the Slate app (email sent to you earlier this week). Use the email address you used when signing on. If you are struggling, please message Darren who can assist. In the meantime, get involved, and happy predicting!

Merton FC Golf Day 27.07.18

Merton F C -Golf Day at the Oaks- A great day organised so well by Toddy Thanks for doing this and coming down to SW19. 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. Thanks to all who supported this event and Dixie for coming and telling his jokes.

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…
