Honours Boards

Congratulations to all the Under 5,6 and 7’s who have been recognised this week – you’ve got the Honours Board all to yourselves – again. Well done !


Chris Marshall will be at the Pav on Friday evening at 7pm with our new range of hats which are now available for purchase. We would like all players to wear the new Wisborough Green hats for our matches which enhances our identity as a team and a club. We have slightly different colours for juniors (£10) , ladies (£12) and senior men (£15) – see pics below. Would be great to have all our players kitted out with hats for their first games of the season.
