FOOTBALL CLUB: This evening, Friday, the Reserves begin their reserve section east fixtures with a home match versus Langley Wanderers with a 7.45pm kick-off at the Caburn. Tomorrow, Saturday, the first team are back in league action following their early exit from the FA Cup competition last weekend, when they play Oakwood FC at home in a SCFL Div 1 match with a 3pm kick-off at the Caburn. On Monday evening the thirds continue their league preparations with a friendly match versus Sussex Police at the Caburn with a 7.30pm kick-off. Finally a big thank you to Dave Ryan of North Street Garage for his most generous donation to the defibrillator fund. This has now been ordered and will, hopefully, soon be installed at the Caburn Pavilion for club and the wider community’s use.
