I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of you who have taken part in any of our match programme this year and I would also like to say a special thanks to all the coaches, supporters and of course the parents as without all of you we would not be able to carry out our junior programme… Also a massive thank you to Damian and Bradshaw Hall Fisheries for his continued support throughout the year… Tonge Angling, Fishermans Way and Moorheys Packaging for all the support (if anybody is thinking of buying any tackle then please don’t use the Internet support our local tackle shops).

We have a fantastic year ahead of us for 2019 which is now at the final planning stages (I will post on here once completed) and don’t forget the junior coaching programme which continues throughout the winter months down at the Lido

Finaly I would like to wish Mr Allan Dye a speedy recovery and hope to see him back down at the Lido very soon

I hope you all have a fantastic Christmas and a Happy New year
All the best
Lee (match secretary)
