  • Also a thanks to Conor Flanagan who was presented with a club award to recognise his contribution to the club over the past two seasons.  
  • Please see email below received from Alistair McCoist Complex this week:

“We have had several complaints at the Alistair McCoist Complex regarding people parking in the disabled bays without displaying a blue badge.
We will have a member of staff patrolling the car park for the next few weeks but are looking for your assistance in reminding your teams/parents that these spaces should only be used by blue badge holders.
We have several groups that use the centre and rely on the additional space bays to get out of their cars.”


  • “You have never really lived until you have done something for someone who can never repay you”.
  • Our club coaches have been inspired by someone who gave up their time to coach them in a sport.

  • Anyone can nominate.

  • Once we have all the nominees we will have a vote by club players.
