Gargrave AFC

Cup Draws….

August 24, 2009

Northern Plant Hire Trophy:

Gargrave FC  Vs  Embsay FC   ( last years finalists).

League Cups:

Gargrave FC  Vs  Waddington FC

Gargrave Reserves  Vs  AFC  Padiham

Dates of the above games are to be advised.

A very disappointing turn out for the clearing of the show ground on Saturday evening. We have a total of 36 players and officials – how many helped ? – 4.

Huge thanks to Chris, Jane and Jonathan who are not involved with the club but chose to help out and to the young Beckwith and Harrison brothers who collected all the posts. The show committee give the club a very generous donation each year for clearing the field, half a dozen extra helpers and the job would have been done easily in an hour not two and  a half. It is such an easy and quick way of raising much needed funds but it  is no joke when it lands on the same people each year.

If anyone wants to redeem themselves there is plenty of voluntary work crying out to be done at the ground. Goal posts and railings need painting ( paint and brushes are in the tunnel), the sign at the end of the drive needs painting, grass needs strimming in the car park and edges of the pitch etc. etc. Do you know anyone who wants a sign board putting up to advertise their business? They arrange the making of the sign and the fitting onto the railings and then give us a donation of £50.00 per year. Where else can you advertise your business for less than  a £1  per week?


Got something to say?
