Welcome back to all our players, coaches, parents and supporters as we get set to start a new season! We are running 10 teams across the club this season with most of our teams taking part in the Reading and West Berkshire League, and our U10s in the Peter Houseman Youth League. All of our teams will be back in training next week, with matches starting across September 2022. Please see our individual team pages for training, and match, times and locations.
We would like to thank club sponsors McDonalds, EPC, and Oscura who continue to provide such valuable support to the club. We also very grateful to Co-op and Howdens who have provided funds to club.
