Volunteers -

May 4, 2012

We need Volunteers again please to get the pitch in order for the last Craven League Final of the season. The Northern Plant Hire Trophy final ( kindly sponsored by our President, Mr. Paul Watson ) will now take place on Tuesday 22nd May ( originally scheduled for the 15th May but delayed due to the backlog of games ).

Unfortunately despite our best efforts the pitch was not at its best for the third division final which took place on Wednesday 2nd May between Oakworth Reserves and Oxenhope Reserves. ( Congratulations to Oakworth who won on penalties). A combination of wet weather in the days leading up to the game and availability of a grass cutting team were the main factors in a below par pitch.

Prior to the last game we will need the pitch rolling ( the roller is at the ground, it just needs someone with a suitable vehicle and half an hour to spare ), marking out, sanding in some areas, nets up on the afternoon prior to the game and taking down after the game. Please help if you can, as these jobs tend to fall on the same people.

Big thanks to the lads who came along on Wednesday and took the nets and corner flags down. Much appreciated.

Hope everyone will go along to the LMS ground on Tuesday evening, 8th May to see Gargrave Reserves play Hellifield Sports in the Division Two final. Kick Off 6.15.

Players subs….

November 17, 2011

Will all players try to keep up todate with their match subs. Most of the clubs in the Craven League are now charging at least £5 per game plus a signing on fee  averaging £10.00 so our subs ( plus no siging on fee )  are very reasonable in comparision.  The fee for a referee has increased and dependant on the mileage they charge, we are now paying anything from £25 per game to £37.00. Our players subs of £3 per game just about cover that over the season but only if everyone pays! Please pay any that are outstanding as soon as you can.
