Welcome to the new season! The season’s opening league games are less than a fortnight away and preparations are in full flow for the 7 junior and 3 senior teams that will be competing this summer.

The 1st XI start their promotion campaign at Swans Nest Lane on Saturday 25th April (12:00pm start) against newly promoted Worcester, while the 2nd XI open up their first game back in the 2nd XI First Division away to Coventry NW on the same day. The junior sides commence their respective campaigns from Sunday 26th April.

Of course, it’s also time to ask you kindly to renew your membership. Could we please request that members renew by no later than Friday 8th May. This will greatly help to ease the club’s cash flow at the busiest time of the year.
