Tour Update – Thu 3 March

I've now had 14 players pay me their £50 deposit so as I explained in my last update I will now make a firm booking with Shire Sports for our hotel and they will start searching for our fixtures. Likewise I can confirm our coach hire.

We will be based in Southampton and have fixtures in Hampshire.

Just as a reminder the itinerary will be roughly as follows:
– Depart Sun 7 Aug morning
– Play a match that afternoon
– Overnight in Southampton
– Match on Monday and 2nd night in Southampton
– Tues 9 Aug – travel back

Total cost will be approx £175 with your deposit counting £50 towards this including all coach travel and 2 nights B&B (not fines – ha!)

The 14 who have paid are: me, Lee, 3x Clarkes, Chef, 2x Sheds, Stearman, Shafty, Jake, Ryan, Dave Allum, Jason.

If anyone else wants to join us you need to let me know and pay asap as we cannot reserve other rooms at the hotel without payment and so they may fill up with other bookings. I'll book a coach that can seat at least 20 so that won't be a problem.
