Vets Summer Training
Vets summer training will continue at Tugmutton Common as the surface at Tubbenden Rec is not exactly ideal. The clubhouse will be open for beers after training.
This session is open to anybody interested in getting back up to "speed" before the season starts and will consist of a 3-touch game rather than any strenuous exercises. Senior Vets fixtures start on 28th August with the Vets XI getting under way on 4th September so it makes sense for current squad members to get involved.
Pre-season training is now getting underway at FOBG. Please click the Training option from the left hand menu for details.
