If you are reading this then you must be as excited as we all are at Shottermill & Haslemere about the new season ahead. After such a brilliant world cup for England “The Buzz” has definitely returned to English football and hopefully the relative successes of the summer will filter on down to us at grassroots level, where everyone knows the real football is played! Much has been done behind closed doors during the summer and we begin our assault on some long awaited silverware!! We have appointed a new look committee, including two new social secretaries who are already planning some great events for all. To match this we now have a social media team to keep us up to date on all platforms, so there is no excuse not to hear how your favourite local team has got on! Whilst new members of the committee are very welcome and needed we have managed to retain some of the wiser heads in all the important jobs, their time and effort is invaluable to clubs like ours and to have a Treasurer and Secretary as dedicated as ours it puts us in a strong position organisational wise as we look to develop. We welcome back players from last year as well as new ones, some returning to the club after a short spell elsewhere and some completely new faces we’ve met for the first time.
As we have always done, our home games will be played at Woolmer Hill sports ground. A facility which is in planning for a potential refurbishment of the clubhouse and one of the ATP’s is currently being resurfaced which will ensure we have access to some of the best training facilities available locally.
It just leaves me to wish both of our teams and all of our players all the very of luck for the season, here’s hoping all the hard work in pre-season pays off and we get the results!
Hope to see at some games, your support is always appreciated.
