MESSAGE FROM YOUR PRESIDENT

Message from your President Sadly all county fixtures have been cancelled until the end of June due to the Coronavirus, this includes all knockout competitions. I informed all delegates this week to communicate this with club members, we certainly are in unprecedented times and will keep you informed as and when.

Our first training session of the 2020 season at Fridlford Heath G.C. with our new coach Martin Woodbridge.
