Exercising of Dogs The Club Officer board has received a complaint from a Parent over a child returning home from training with Dog fouling on their nicks. Due to this it is now forbidden to walk or exercise a Dog in the area of pitch 2, 3 and 4. If you wish to bring a dog to the club it must be kept on a lead at all times and remain on the hard standing that surrounds the area of the main pitch. In the event of the Dog fouling it must be picked up placed in a bag and put in the nearest Bin. We thank you for your help
