Club News for this weekend - What’s happening - 1st/2nd August?

What's happening this weekend?

Playing

The senior players are to play a mixed training game this Saturday (KO 1pm). Coach Gavin Blackburn along with Murray Thomson, Andrew Cairns and Alistair Browning have been busy getting all players up to speed fitness-wise and the sessions have been well received by those present.

There are still a number of players who have been absent however and it would be important to get as many out training as is possible to ensure our sides are competitive come the start of the season. The League programme kicks off on 29th August when bothe senior sides have away games - the 1sts at Lasswade and the 2nds at Stewarts Melville.

If you know of players who have yet to make a start please give them a push! Likewise, the door is open to anyone to make themselves available for playing/training. NO experienece is necessary!

 

Membership

All members should have received details of membership fees for season 2015/16. These are available on the website. Cash flow through the summer months is always difficult and memberships paid now can help offset this problem.

Apart from that your memberships are CRUCIAL for players who then benefit from the SRU Insurance scheme (although the advice is still to look at getting additional insurance) and of course to the club being able to provide better social, playing and training facilities - and to survive!

PLEASE NOTE: the offer of a reduced membership is STILL available!! BUT ONLY if your fees are paid by 31st August. Thereafter memberships will cost the full amount - appprox £25 more per player/member!

 

Development

Work continues on the pitch development.

What a transformation! Gone is the heap and pile of spoil and in its place is a massive area which will accommodate the new pitches.

The playing surfaces are now almost completely level - pitch layout is now underway with detailed drainage and floodlight placement now being confirmed. It is hoped to seed the pitches this summer but it will be another year before they can be played on.

 

Clubhouse Tidy/Jobs to do!

As always there are a number of jobs requring the assistance of the club membership. Already undertaken are the painting of the changing room floors and the revamp of the Ladies toilets while work has begun on the shop roof. The next two Sundays have been earmarked as 'Work days' so anyone with a couple of hours to spare would be made very welcome. Please try and come down to offer your help. Tasks will be provided and will be allocated on your experience base! The days start at 9.30am. 

Can you spare the time?? This Sunday 2nd August and next Sunday 9th August.
