Pendley Day Nursery (posted Thu 8th Oct 2020)

A CASHLESS CLUB (posted Tue 6th Oct 2020)
We are working towards becoming a cashless club such that all our transactions are carried out via credit cards or bank transfers.

From next Saturday, spectators wi...more

1st team Player of the Month

Sep 2020: Paolo Bagatti (in association with Olive Limes)
A good solid start for Paolo Bagatti at Athletic slotting in at right back since the start of the 20/21 campaign. Not only has he defended well, Paolo has also bombed forward and contributed to our attacking play.

The Olive Limes has kindly awarded Paolo with a voucher for a meal for two at their restaurant in Tring.
