Merton F C Minutes of AGM 2015

Love your Pitch

The Volunteers turned up and did some good work repairing the pitches with top soil and grass seed just ahead of the rain. It might be the Wimbledon final but we could do with some more rain this afternoon.  Thanks Ryan Gresty, Graham Willgoss, Andrew Graves, Kevin Locke, Marc Wilson, David Quainton and Ivan Gladkow for coming along for the gardening. Ryan this definitely gives you first dibs on free kicks on the edge of the box and DQ it excuses you from any future gardening.
