Many will know that Tim Topham will be moving up country and therefore no longer able to manage the Reserves team. Over 14 years at the club, Tim has played for and managed both the first team and reserves and has also played forthe veterans and helped coach our minisoccer players. Tim has worked hard in all his roles and he will be missed as someone who has been pro-active in getting things done at the club. He deserves our thanks for all he has done and I am sure that everyone wishes him the best of luck in the forthcoming new chapter in his life.
Alastair Woodman will be taking over the Reserves manager's job and I am confident that he will receive the full support of the players.

Annual Boxing Day Challenge Match
Chairman’s Team (Weeks, Maker) 2-1 Secretary’s Team (Woodman J)
Thanks to everyone who came along to play today - a narrow 2-1 win for the Chairman's team. Thought we should have sewn it up properly in the second half but Adie Martin made a few good saves in the second half - my choice as man of the match!
Now looking forward to the new year and can I wish everyone associated with the club a happy, successful and prosperous 2017. Best wishes to everyone for the second part of the season.
First Team : Manager Glyn Ford, Assistant Hoops Slaughter

New Laws of the Game
It may have been noticed at the Euros that kick-offs are being taken differently. This is because the kick-off rules have changed, along with a number of other Laws. Click here to see a summary of the changes produced by the FA.
Anyone interested in gaining coaching qualifications should contact a committee member. As a Charter Standard Club there is some subsidy in the cost of courses and the club is willing to support financially those members wishing to attend.
