The AGM 2018 has been called for Monday 6th August 2018 at 7.30pm. The Club will not be open for play after that time.

This is an opportunity for people to discuss club matters and to vote on any appropriate changes that may be put forward to the meeting. We therefore would encourage as many people (including parents and casual members as well) to attend as possible.
