European Championship BBQ's

We will be running the BBQ at the Black Horse pub in Melbourn during England's Euro 2020 group matches. We will be on duty before, during and after the games.

We start this Sunday lunchtime with the first match vs Croatia. We would love to see you all there.

As per usual 25% of profits raised will go to charity.

2020/21 Season Review

Eventful!

Is definitely one way of describing this season. Even though it was the season that never was...

Sadly, due to the ongoing pandemic and associated lockdowns, the season was cancelled. The first team were flying high at the top of division 2a, undefeated in nine games. The reserves were holding their own in 4a, in their first season back after nine years absence. Training was well attended, firstly at the Moor whilst the light was good, then on the excellent 4g surface at Shelford Rugby Club. All this despite the uncertainty COVID-19 has brought into all our lives.

Recently as lockdown was eased we were able to field both teams in the Cambs FA 'champions league' style competition. Both sides performed with great credit at times, playing against higher placed opposition more often than not. Particularly the first team who nearly qualified for the knockout stages.

We even made it on to YouTube twice, courtesy of 'Around the Grounds'! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_d0NZKyctY & https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzEImmUDNDA

Perhaps the thing to be most proud of this season has been the unity and drive of all concerned in the club. There have been many new faces this season, two new managers took the reins for starters, who then integrated several new players. Everyone has mucked in and worked hard. This is perhaps most obviously demonstrated in our charitable efforts. We held a Gin Night, a Quiz Night, ran two Last Man Standing competitions and - last but by no means least - virtually ran to Istanbul and back for CPSL Mind. The combined tally of this seasons fund raising efforts is as follows:

  • 25% of general fund raising - £467.76

  • Virtual run to Istanbul - £3375.28 raised + £843.82 gift aid = £4219.10

  • Total = £4686.86

Thanks to:

  • Our fantastic sponsors.

  • Steve & Kerry and team at the Black Horse for making us feel so welcome.

  • Terry Muncey for technical expertise and time when sorting out the store room.

  • Everyone who came and watched us play.

  • Everyone who donated to charity.

  • Everyone who ran or walked to Istanbul.

  • Everyone who lent a hand with something!

We'll see you next season down the Moor.
