As you may know Chairman Mark Thorne will be doing a sponsored walk around the pitch (the distance of a marathon) with half the proceeds going to the GWAAC (our charity of the season) and half to Boost the Budget. This will take place on Sunday 1st October and please go to and search for Mark Thorne or you can click HERE to donate. Your support would be greatly appreciated.

So far £150 has been donated and we are hoping for more contributions with just over 2 weeks to go before the big event. We will update you about timings etc. in the coming days. Let’s hope for a dry day on 1st October.
