Half Term – Feb 2020

Week commencing Monday 17th Februrary

Adult training will continue as normal, weather permitting. Any alterations will be posted on Facebook & Twitter (and you’ll probably hear from your Captain too!)

Junior training will WILL NOT be running during half term.

Make sure to like and follow our pages for the most up-to-date information!

Kit Update!

You should all have your hoodies now – the other items are at the clubhouse waiting to be collected. Best make sure you visit sometime soon… Please note that only captains can hand out kits – the last thing we’d want is for any to go wandering off.

Sadly, some of the socks came in the wrong sizes. This has already been addressed, and we’ll have the right sizes very soon.

Kit (Update)

The kit is with the printers – as soon as we have them, we’ll let you know! We hope to have everything ready for when we reconvene in January. Christmas was a long-shot, and we tried, really we did – sadly, it just wasn’t possible.

Christmas
