CAR PARKING (posted Sun 28th Jul 2019)
New parking controls are being implemented in the main shared car park at Pendley Sports Centre with effect from 3rd August 2019.

In order to optimise the use of the car park, and ensure members are not impacted by inappropriate parking, Pendley Sports Centre has decided to implement controls whereby cars must be parked within a marked parking bay.

Failure to park within a marked parking space risks a fine being issued by the parking control partner CPM Ltd. There is now clear signage around the car park that explains requirements and penalties.

1st team Player of the Month

Nov 2019: Luke Dunstan (in association with John Lambert Car Sales & Olives Limes)
It was a delight that Luke Dunstan won our Player of the Month Award for November. Luke has well over 200 appearances for the club, coming up through our reserves to be a vital, driving force in the first team's mid-field over the past 2 to 3 seasons. He is maturing in to a fine, local talent and fully deserves this Award.
