Firstly we can bring you the good news that, following Cove’s 2-4 defeat at Guildford City on Wednesday evening, we are now virtually assured of 3rd place in the final table.  (Cove would have to beat Hanworth Villa by a 13 goal margin or better on Saturday to top us).  It is important not only because of possible prize money, although the League has not issued any details but also because it should guarantee an exemption to the 1st Round Proper of the FA Vase next season.  Once again, well done to all our players and management for turning the club around following relegation last season.

Secondly male members enter the club at your own peril on Friday evening from 7.00 p.m. onwards as there is a Ladies’ evening taking place, the details of which are shrouded in secrecy, although we understand that the event is something along the likes of an Anne Summers party.  In seriousness, all ladies are warmly invited to attend (there is no entry fee) but just on this one night we would ask our male members not to come along after 7.00 p.m.  Thanks for your co-operation.

Next our Under-18’s have their final match on Monday 27 April when they will entertain Bedfont Sports in the Ryman Youth League, kick-off 7.45 p.m.  It has been a difficult season for the Under-18’s but they have rallied somewhat recently and in their last match pulled off a magnificent 4-0 win away at Aldershot.  Bedfont Sports have had an excellent season at U18 level and it should be a good match.  Also it is manager Sean Caldwell’s last match in charge before he takes up a new coaching job in Austria.  He has been tireless in his efforts for the Club in recent seasons and we wish Sean all the best.  He wil be delighted to see you on Monday if you can make it.

We next come to report upon the magnificent effort last weekend by Pat Munns, along with Anne and others who embarked upon a 26 mile walk to London for charity.  Pat has been with our club since 1967 I believe and this was a superb effort which should be properly lauded.  The party left Hampton Court at just after 8.00 a.m. arriving at the London Eye at 3.45 p.m.  The walk has already raised £800+ for the two charities being supported and there is still the opportunity of making a donation to these worthy causes.  Please leave any such donations in an envelope behind the bar, marked for Pat’s attention, and he will pick them up. 

Alternatively, you can make a donation directly by going to either or both of the Charities’ web sites and donating directly.  They are:  the Midas Plus Charity and Leukaemia Research, and the web sites are: and    Just click on research to make a donation.  Leukaemia Research speaks for itself whilst the Midas Charity is dedicated to helping the disadvantaged in Middlesex, Surrey and surrounding areas.

Finally we have the annual Club Presentation evening on Saturday 9 May, once again at the Moon in Moon, Thames Street, Sunbury, after they looked after us so well last year.  Manager Ben Murray is the principal organiser.  It was extremely popular last year and quite frankly is a snip at £20 per head for guests.  We are limited though to a maximum of 95 people so if you wish to come along please let Ben know.  His email address is:  This email address is being protected from spambots.

Just a note for committee members and anyone else who may be available to help.  We have three Surrey Primary League Cup Finals taking place at the ground on Sunday this week, which means we will be extremely busy, so if you are available to lend a hand, please just turn up.  The first match is at 10.00 a.m. and then through the day.
