Hundreds of people flocked to visit our new clubhouse over the weekend as the doors opened to the public for the first time. After an official opening on Friday night the club was packed all day on Saturday and Sunday for open age and junior matches. On Saturday the club was open from middey till ten pm with junior curtain raisers, a Masters v U18s and a first team win against Oulton. It was a proud day for everyone involved with the club.
Chairman Shane Wilson says: "For many years it has been the dream of many of us concerned with the club to have facilities that reflect the ambition of the members and complement the work that takes place day in and day out, giving the club a base which brings us bang up to date and gives us real impetus for the future."
After the old club was knocked down in August, it's been a race against time to get it ready for the first home match.
Shane continued: "From that great party night after the last home game of the season, the amount of work undertaken has been immense by a huge variety of people, who have contributed a vast amount of time, expertise and resource to the project."
A plaque that will go on the front of the building is unveiled by Treasurer Karen Thompson and Chairman Shane Wilson, pictured with Bill Holroyd and Terry Flanagan and their wives.
