Club Stuff:

Thank you to the 46 players who have already paid their 2008/2009 Players Annual Subs in full. Please can the rest of you pay me at the club this Saturday as payment is now overdue. Name and shame is going up on the board.

PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO THE RFU WANTING OUR FORMS BACK EARLIER THAN NORMAL ALL APPLICATIONS MUST BE WITH ME BY SUNDAY 16TH OCTOBER SO DO NOT HANG ABOUT.
