Game Day

For games in the seniors, players are asked to be at the ground at least 1 hour before the start of play. This allows time to assess the condition and warm up and prepare for the game.

Please contact your Captain or the Chairman of Selectors if you are unsure what time is appropriate. If you are going to be late it is important that you notify your captain as soon as possible, particularly when playing Away.
