This weekend two of our five coaches are on holiday and unfortunately this means we cannot be in two locations at once. Therefore our training session on the SUNDAY 9th JULY will be cancelled for all age groups.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, however, we look forward to seeing you all again for our final practice session of the season on Sunday 16th July.
