Keep Calm and Curry On – Saturday 4th May

Next Saturday (4th May) Dipali restaurant will be bringing their fine Indian cuisine up to the Walker ground in the form of a buffet after the intra-club game. This should provide a good platform for an early season social evening for all, but will hopefully be particularly useful in integrating new players. If you’re keen to partake then please bring an extra ¬£10-12 and let me know on

Dates for your diary



Please note that this season’s fixture card has a couple of mistakes

The Quiz, run by Jeremy Dangerfield is now on Friday 21 June, NOT as the fixture card.

Presidents, Vice Presidents and Honorary Members Day is now Saturday 22 June, again not as in the fixture card.

Please adjust diaries as necessary
