Many club members, old and new, friends and local businesses have already been kindly contributing to our major fundraising project for this season. Renovation of our training area and first team pitch - Pitches 2020.

Carl Tomalin, Steve Mackie and many others have done a fantastic job over the past 40 odd years, keeping our pitchs playable and marked, but we now need to invest in our playing and training surfaces.

This will involve major works, commencing immediately after the seasons end with our Mini Festival in April and will mean the area is closed off till the start of the new season in September 2020. Some external events have relocated (Dog Agility Show) others will move to higher up the ground (RugbyX7s in July) as examples.

A new spectator path has been laid in front of the club house already (thanks TW Civils) The old fence removed and a new one installed, plus the pitch works.

We Need You! to please pass the word to anyone who may be able to contribute to our biggest project on our playing surfaces since we moved here in 1974. April may seem a long way off but the monies are sought early so we can place orders for supplies and contractors and organise and plan the works involved.

Please speak to Matt Bland, Billy Gall or George Shipman if you wish to donate or have any queries.
