Club Statement (posted Wed 5th Feb 2020)
Due to a hostile attempt to take over the running of the Club by a group of individuals, including some former committee members, the Committee have removed several persons from within the Club with immediate effect. This includes the First Team Manager and his staff and a number of the 1st Team squad. We hope that all supporters will continue to remain loyal as we fight to overcome this attempted takeover. Some members have received correspondence not originated by the existing Club Committee and this should be ignored with any questions directed to the Club. A further statement will be issued in due course
Further information (posted Wed 5th Feb 2020)
Club reclaimed for local community.
Several measures have been taken to reclaim our football club to it's original identity.
This includes removing several individuals from the club who were instigating a hostile take over bid with the aim of removing the current committee who have built the club from a shed in Miswell Lane to the facilities we now have and own.
In recent times, we acknowledge the club has moved away from our aims of providing football for local players who supporters could identify with. The club has pledged to correct this misdirection.
This will allow local players the opportunity to play at the level they are capable of within the financial means of the club. We hope this will encourage more local support from spectators and businesses.
We would like to express our thanks to the Management team and players who have achieved the goal set them when joining the club and wish them all the best going forward.
We would also like to thank all of our friends in the football community for their offers of help.
There will be some disruption over the remainder of the season but we are sure these changes will be justified in the long term future of the club.

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.
Please rest assured that the parking controls and any associated fines will be managed in the first instance by nominated Authorised Club Officials from each of the clubs sharing the car park.
The desire is to avoid issuing fines if at all possible, but ensure proper and responsible parking by all users of the car park - this will be to the benefit of club members.
