A family affair.

For the last number of years the parents of the current U16’s team have been taking their turns in washing the jerseys after each game.  This has been a saving of 15 a time!  If any parent of the other age groups would like to organize this for their child’s team please let their managers know.



· Please ensure when contacting any player under 18 that you do so through the parents unless the parents have given written permission to contact the players directly.

· If organising a challenge game please inform the club secretary of the opposition, location of game and referee so she can contact either the county and/or the province with at least four working days notice.
