A New Season Message from our President
A new season is quickly approaching, and it is with honour that I write to you in our One Hundredth and First year as your President. Following last year’s successful Centenary, we are back to a more normal year but again a very busy one. We have an exciting year ahead with our first tour for many years to Weymouth and a full fixture list to keep us busy. As I welcome you all to the new season I ask you again to support the Captains by making yourself available for matches and helping with jobs around the club in any way you can. I look forward to meeting you all in April and wish you all a happy and successful season.
We are very pleased and proud to launch this years events on the website for the 2018 Season. We hope you will find the content both interesting and informative. If you have anything you want us to include please feel free to contact David Greenwood, Debbie Greenwood or Gerald Webb. Its your site!
