Last Sunday afternoon the annual volunteers’ event proved to be a resounding success with all who attended.
Pre-season fitness training and conditioning began on Monday with Gerry McGuinness putting everyone through their paces, there were some tired and sore bodies after the first couple of sessions but the work done now will pay off as the season progresses.
Membership renewals will be issued soon and members are asked to complete the form in order that we can keep an up-to-date list. At this time of year with the preparation for the season in full swing early payment would be appreciated as the club has extra bills to meet.
