Welcome once more to the members newsletter, I hope it finds you in good health.
Just a quick one to start off with, a reminder that membership renewals for this year are due and can be done either as per the usual form behind the bar, or you can renew here if you prefer to do so online.
Since the last newsletter we have completed a very successful pre-season, with the first team winning all their games.
They ranged from the high scoring including retaining the Jimmy Rowe cup with a comfortable win again Benfield, to closer but not less satisfying victories against Droylsden and Birtley Town.
At the Birtley game we welcomed the family of out much missed former gateman and volunteer Gordon Wilson for the dedication of the turnstile hut in Gordon’s name.
Yesterday saw the start of the new season and our second in the first division. We opened our account against our Whickham in front of another fantastic crowd of 455.
Whilst we didnt get the victory we wanted, I dare say I won’t be the only one who felt a bit hard done by.
Next Saturday sees the start of our FA Cup campaign for 2023-24, when we welcome Tow Law Town, it would be great to see as many of you there as possible to cheer the lads on.
