Update Oct 2020 - For the 2021 season. .
Due to fantastic numbers returning for the 2021 season we unfortunately have to put a waiting list on the under 11s and under 13s age groups .
Planning to field 3 x u11s and 4 x u13s teams we are now at our limit to provide a safe amd meaningful product.
Too many will dilute our product and put pressure on coaches and managers together with having to much playing rotation.
We are still accepting applications from girls as part of our business and development plan.
At present we are running a waiting list for boys under 11s and under 13s.
Kwiks and females of all ages are stilll welcome to apply.
