Ashley Godber, Club Treasurer said, “We were delighted with the turn out for the AGM and there are many further improvements planned for the season. Not only have we been able to reduce annual subs for our players but we now have logoed club whites, a dedicated grounds man, a soon to be completed MUGA and are in advanced stages of finalising outdoor cricket nets. The Club has never been in better health (both on and off the pitch) and with two Saturday teams we look forward to a very exciting season”.
