OK, enough of the weather, we all want to play – not least the players. I think yesterday was the coldest day of all and no one would have expected the game to go ahead – and certainly no one would have enjoyed a game in those temperatures – but looking at the pitch any decision on yesterday’s game was an easy one.
Off the field there is no let up though. We had a long board meeting earlier in the week which covered a lot of ground, not least our financial position, and issues around Ruislip – both in terms of money we need to spend and our longer term future there. There is never any shortage of things going on. We are now preparing for this year’s club AGM and this is likely in late February.
We also had the New Year’s draw taking place yesterday and we were grateful to the Mayor of Hillingdon for coming to do the draw. We had an opportunity to show him around the Social Club and educate him about the Club. Hopefully we will be able to welcome him to a game sometime soon. The draw went well and we will be able to announce the profit from this very soon.
Fingers and Mark Lloyd are attending a meeting with representatives from our Juniors tomorrow night, to plan for the future including hopefully to nail a date for the second Junior tournament, which will build on the success of the one that Mark ran back in May.
So fingers crossed for a return to action on Tuesday night at Staines and I hope to see you all there.
