The group is currently taking a break during the present lockdown, but will resume as soon as government restrictions allow.

Originally called the ‘Five-a-Side Football’ group, the name had become something of a misnomer, as we usually play with 6-a-side on the pitch. Our playing numbers vary from week to week so if we have more than 12 players we operate a system of ‘rolling subs’.  If the weather permits we occasionally play outside on the all-weather pitch.
