Jersey v Richmond EASTER Saturday 15th April KO 3pm
This will be the last game of a very eventful season and over Easter weekend too, and I know that many of you have already booked flights to Jersey combining such an auspicious occasion with a bit of R & R.
The team are travelling on the Friday and we would like to arrange a social gathering of all those that are there as well in support at the team hotel, The Merton on the Friday evening. The team will of course be in attendance and in order to gauge numbers would all those going to Jersey please indicate if they would like to join us – and I would stress that includes everyone - supporters, family, girlfriends, friends etc etc

Mini Fixture Secretary needed
Lisa Stone has recently stepped down as Mini Fixture Secretary after 4 years valiant service. We are enormously indebted to her for all her hard work and commitment and would like to offer her a huge thank you on behalf of the mini section and the club as a whole.
We now need to urgently find someone to take her place and if you think that could be you then please contact either myself or Lisa (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 07971 631093) so we can talk you through what is involved and the amount of time it takes up etc.
The main task is to co-ordinate fixtures and festivals for the Minis, both those that we attend and those that we host and I know Lisa has found it great fun and enjoyed her time enormously. It is certainly the way to get involved with the section and to get to know the parents across the age groups - so don’t be shy - get in touch with one of us today!!
