The start of September used to be the time you started thinking about football and getting fit for the new season not nowadays with the league starting next Saturday quite a few friendlies have been played with mixed results.
This is an important season for the first team having been promoted after too many seasons in Div 3 they need to consolidate their place and hopefully push for another promotion what makes it tougher is that 3 teams will be relegated but only 2 promoted from their league this year. We have restarted our 3rd team this year taking us back to 7 league teams plus we have entered the Vets cup for the first time in some years.
The league has taken on 6 new reams this year let's hope that they are all up to the standards expected of an SAL Club.
On a sad note older members will be sad to hear of the passing of ex skipper and player Trey Mellis whose funeral will take place on the 11th September for details please call 07771655349
