Clubhouse open from 2pm until 7.30pm today

Big shout for the Under 10s

A great turn-out by the Under 10s tonight with training cut short by the evil weather. Nonetheless, everyone had fun and were well fed with Pancakes and syrup, Chinese crackers, Sausages and the ever- popular ice poles!

Pancakes and golden syrup tonight for the children

Clubhouse not open until 5pm today – sorry, running out of hours!

5.45pm just before training – and guess what? It’s pouring hard again. Will it never give up?

Sad news as young referee passes away

All youth teams on Saturday are asked to mark the passing of young referee Lucy Kerr, 20, a victim of cancer. Lucy was a super girl and excellent referee – no words suffice. The club sends its deepest condolences to Lucy’s family and friends. RIP Lucy Kerr.

The BGFC U8s Dreamers back at Waterside today

Update from the groundsman 12 noon Saturday

Sunday senior game is off. Senior pitch is under water and small senior is too soft – it is dangerous and someone is likely to twist or break an ankle.
