A few things (including Christmas do on 8th December)

28 Nov 2018

Dear Mods

A few things I need to share with you (and hopefully get your support for).

CHRISTMAS DO

This will be held at the club (and will inevitably end in Headingley and disgrace) after the games on Saturday 8th December. Please do everything within your power to be there 1) to support the club and 2) to spend some quality time with your team and clubmates (many of whom you might not yet know).

AVAILABILITY

I'm aware that I've had to do this a number of times already this season, but it makes life very complicated (not to mention time consuming) if the managers of your teams don't kno who is or isn't available every week. Please do your bit to help ease the pain.

RECRUITMENT

As many of you will be aware, we have really struggled to put out four teams over the last few weeks. There is an obvious availability issue which contributes towards this, and it is clear that we don't have enough of a core of players to sustain this. We are in the process of putting together some marketing material in order to push recruitment, and the committee ask that you do your bit to try to attract new players to the club.

TRAINING

Numbers were great over the summer and early part of the season but have recently fallen. Elliott and Gibbo put a lot of time into planning sessions and I think we owe it to them to attend training, whatever the weather (and whatever is on the telly). Please try to support this (after all, it's for your benefit ).

Thanks for your time.

Chris
