Our planned August jaunt to the North East is now very much ‘up and running’ with Big Shed Daryl Godbold and Tricky Dicky Waddell stepping forward as our leaders. Daryl has volunteered to take on the role of tour organiser but Richard has already arranged fixtures against his former club, Benwell and Walbottle on Sunday 5th August and Benwell Hill on Monday 6th and will be liaising with Daryl to book a suitable hotel.  The coach is already provisionally booked.  With our midweek skipper’s organisational skills and Richard’s local knowledge it should be an excellent trip.

We’ll travel up on Sunday morning so it will be a very early start, and return on Tuesday 7th August.  We’ll try to keep costs as low as possible but it is likely to be around £150.  We already have a good number of players who have confirmed that they will be touring but a party of at least 16 would be ideal and help to keep the costs down

Please let Daryl know as soon as possible if you are a ‘definite’ or a ‘maybe’ so we can get an idea of numbers. A £50 deposit will be payable in due course.

Big thanks to Daryl for taking it on and to Richard, and Chris Elliott, for all they have done so far.  Tour theme etc will be announced later but, just to whet your appetite, above are some pictures of previous tours.

The Chairman.
