20th December (TBC) – Youth section Christmas Party
Main points out of last nights league fixtures meeting:
– Season starts on 5th September for 1st-3rd teams and 12th September for the rest
– A round robin cup competition will be run for teams in the bottom 2 divisions (our 6s) – this is to give clubs a chance to blood players
– Online team sheets are to be completed this season by all teams within 4 days after the game is played. The club will decide how best to ensure this is done
– because of above all players must be registered before they can play
Doverhouse proved very tough opposition and our U14s, U13s, U12s and U11s all lost. Battling to the end but losing. The U10s had a good day winning one but losing the other in two close games. Well done to Steve for pulling all this together. Good run out and a lot to learn before season starts. But good fun.

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.
