A few details for you all to put into your diaries.
This Saturday 20th, Eccles will be hosting Heath (from Halifax – Yorkshire div1) in a pre-season friendly. If it’s anything like last week’s game away to Menai Bridge RFC in Wales, we should be in for some fun. I trust we will be entertaining our visitors as well as the lads in Wales did to us.
Next Saturday 27th, Eccles will be playing Manchester in the Lancs Trophy. I was informed last Saturday by Mr Hon Sec that this will be a home fixture, however as he hasn’t stated the venue on the fixture list this may yet be subject to change. Watch this space.
Then on Saturday 3rd, Eccles first play away at Wilmslow with the seconds and thirds starting their season proper at home to Southport and Ashton-u-Lyne respectively. I understand post match frolics may be undertaken and are open to all players.
All are welcome to come down and watch the games, you could even take part, so long as you’re not called Thorpe. KO 3:00pm.
Finally, further details will be put on the web site, however just to warn you all and to make sure you get your permission slips completed, Saturday 1st October sees the return of the Eccles Oktoberfest Bash, music by Von Hamer’s Oompha Band. Tickets will be on sale soon.
