Keep an eye on the fixture lists as things get closer to the start of the season. We have a Home Friendly against Millom on Saturday the 19th August. We also have a game Away to Silloth to be played before the 3rd September. This is a preliminary game in the Cumbria Cup, if we win we will have a Home tie against Carlisle 1st.
Monday 3rd July
The club will be holding a training session on the day starting at 12:00.
This will be followed by the EGM when you will be able to have your say as to who will be Captain(s) for the season. Plus vote on on or off Committee Members.
This will be a good time to pay your Membership Fees and save £5 the process, or for those with cash flow problems have a word with me and we’ll sort things out.
We will also be having a BBQ after the official proceedings, and the club will be supplying a keg of beer, which will be shared equally between all.
But as the saying goes when its gone its gone.

Last Sunday saw a joint Junior squad made up of Players from Millom and Furness Combine and head to Hawcoat Park to take them on in a 10’s Festival. Unfortunately attendance was poor to say the least, but on a positive note our players all got a run out.

Thursday 5th January
New years day went down as an event to remember, for those who missed it the Lee White memorial game was watched by record crowds, who were also very generous to the charities the game was being played for. Both St Mary’s Hospice and the Bluebell foundation will benefit from the £3000 that was given over two events, A family night for the benefit of St Mary’s on the 29th and the New Years Day game for both. A big thank you must go to the crowd, the 60 players who all wanted to be part of the event and all of the volunteers who allowed the event to go smoothly. Hopefully cheque's will be presented to both charities after the home game against Windermere on the 14th January.
