Events Coming Up for Christmas and New Year
Annual Boxing Day Challenge Match
Monday 26th December 2016
For many years, the club has staged this, our traditional Boxing Day game as an enjoyable way of getting together at this time of year. All regular players from our adult teams are invited to take part. Players should meet by 9.45am at our ground and teams will be selected for a 10.30am kick-off.
Following the game, all players are invited to the Dolphin Inn where the club has booked a buffet for our players and officials (not the usual after-match food) and we hope that everyone will enjoy a drink or two together (don’t forget to arrange a lift home!)

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.
