Most of last season’s team have signed on again for 2017/18, which is great news. John Butler has decided to retire after a long and top class career in local football, he will be much missed around the club, but hopefully he will stay in touch. He will certainly always be welcome at Meadow Park. Well done John, enjoy your free time. Nathan O’Neill is a major new signing for the club from local rivals Ryhope CW, reuniting with Martin Swales. Carl Morris has refund to strengthen the goal keeping department. A number of other new faces have been involved in training and will probably be involved tonight.
The pitch has had major work done again this summer, many thanks to Turfcare for their great work and expertise, and is now being cared for by our excellent, hard working committee members, Graham, Dave and George. The pitch last season held up remarkably well and hopefully we can hope for the same again this year.
On the subject of volunteers we are always looking for people to get involved with the running of the club, whether helping on match days, or with promoting the club or anything else. We have a great team of people, but extra hands are always welcome. Anyone who would be able to help with a couple of hours on home match days with catering and serving would be very welcome, but there is also help needed elsewhere on a match day or during the week behind the scenes. Just speak to any committee member for more info.
Match day prices for 2017/18 will be £6.00, £4.00 concessions, with accompanied children free. It is a slight increase, the first for several years, but still great value.
Season tickets for the new season are available now from the club. Prices show a small increase on last season, to reflect the rise in match day prices, but still represent very good value for top quality Northern League action. Adult tickets are £70.00 and concessions £50.00. All accompanied children under 16 go free as always.
