Sunday … all welcome to celebrate Mark’s life

Clubhouse open today from 8am

Birthday greetings today to Tom Carpenter!

Apologies to those who have not had a personal invite … but everyone is welcome today to the Mark Stanley Memorial Match. Meet 1pm with a 2pm kick off. We are open all day, so please arrive as and when it suits. Matt Stanley and Sid Hone will sort two teams … and remember it is just for fun! Mark, who passed away last year, was a proud Vice President of the Green and excelled as a player and manager. We all remember him with affection, a smile and a drink in his hand. I know the family will want this to be a happy day of celebration … just like Mark himself would have wanted.

Game this morning for the seniors against Cheriton AFC which kicks off at 10.30am. Later, football on the box with the big games on SKY.

Training for the BGV and BG Girls as normal

Thank you to dear friends Kevin Godden and Gary Skillett who have sent tributes to Mark, wishing everybody a good day
