As many of you may already know, 2011 will be our centenary year. Over the coming years, this page will include details of any competitions, information, or any requests or suggestions that you may feel could benefit the club, in order for us to have a year to remember. The club would also like people to come forward with any photographs, newspaper clippings, stories, or memories, that they could share with us, in order to help compile our commemorative book, which is being spearheaded by Alan Foots, Frank Stephenson and Peter Sutton.
Please use the contact us form from the navigation menu to get in touch with any queries or suggestions.
