Following the great news that we have achieved planning approval for extended use of our floodlights until 9pm, we now have a date for our new LED floodlights to be installed.

This is an extensive and complex piece of work so will run from Sunday 1 – Wednesday 4 October.  Due to the safety and impact on the pitch area, this does unfortunately mean that the pitch will be unusable during this time, although we have been advised that we should be able to use it again from Wednesday evening.

Cancellation of training sessions Sunday 1st – Tuesday 3rd October

Unfortunately, the following training sessions will therefore not be able to run due to this installation:

Sunday juniors (both sessions)
Monday evening Womens 3/4s and 5-7s
Tuesday evening Mens 1/2s (see separate communication)

We will aim to start our new training schedule as published on our website from Wednesday 4 October.  The key changes are highlighted in bold below:

If you have any questions about this new timetable, please contact your lead coach or email [email protected].

Once again – a huge thanks to everyone for all your support with this approval and being patient with our impacted timetable over the last year.  We are really excited to at last be able to maximise our use of the pitch across the club.
