October The Annual Loam Spreading Extravaganza.... Saturday 12th October, 10am.

The reason the pitch is playing better is because we have been putting loam on for the last few years. We have 3 tons to spread, so please come along with shovels and rakes - even if you can only make it for an hour, it helps - many hands make light work!

This is one of the more distant away games (although closer than a home game for me!), so please leave in good time. Check The AA website or googlemaps or something to gauge travel time from wherever you are to get there about 13:30. Talk amongst yourselves if you would like to meet at the pub and travel together. That might be a plan as this team doesn't have a nearby pub so we'll be heading back to the Neeld pronto afterwards anyway!

It's the ground with the undulations in the outfield, surrounded by the cows Vice found disturbingly attractive. Turn off the Lechlade Road on to The Elms, which quickly turns into The Wickets, at the end of which is the cricket ground. Any problems, give me a call.
