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…
