Our thanks go to you for your continued efforts in securing the funding for our dream facility. I recall early meetings where our bank balance was in single figures and somehow almost £1M has been raised.
Already we have experienced games on the pitches and functions in the clubhouse. The 3g will complete and compliment the site. We will always be in your debt for helping us to achieve a real life miracle.
