Club Stuff:

Have you paid your Annual Subs yet?
Payment is now due for your Annual Subs for the 2009/2010 season and seventeen players have already paid theirs. When are you going to pay and support your club?  If you pay before the end of September 2009 the price is £40. After that it is £50. See John Lonie or Dave Rimmer who are collecting this year. Make sure you pay them and nobody else so they can then keep an accurate record of the people that have paid and provide them with a receipt. This will prevent any discrepancies and provide the club with an accurate record/paper trail of the money that is coming in/owed to it.

Anything to say?
Please email me details of any Old Yards information, trivia or jokes so I can add them to the next update.
