Thursday 5th November – cancellation of club training

On the 5 November there is a major firework display, fairground etc. Parking at the Keepmoat will be impossible and hectic. Also I am sure a number of our members will be celebrating. therefore under 11s training is cancelled, the tuck shop and reception will be closed. Members should check with their coach about arrangements for this date.
