The club welcomed a small crowd to a warm up game between the first team and under 23s on Saturday 29th August, which acted as the clubs test game before the start of the season. In front of a crowd of around 70 fans, a small group of club representatives and also, most importantly a group of volunteers. The first team saw off the under 23s in a 5-0 win, which also saw a first goal for Mark Waters.

A big thank you to all the volunteers that helped out to make the game go ahead, as well as the fans that came along to support the team. To help this season, we are in on the lookout for match day volunteers to assist, so if you are willing to help please complete this form, and someone will be in touch!
