It was with deep sorrow that we learned of the untimely death of Ben Speakman this week. Ben, who was a manager with us for several seasons, sadly lost his life in a tragic motorcycle accident, just outside Argyle in Scotland, early Monday morming. Ben was part of a group of 20 bikers on a weeks holiday, when the accident occurred.
Ben was only 46 and our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Sarah, his sons Isaac and Kian, also his parents Maria and John.

With a sunny weekend and junior football leagues restarting, one of our parents took this photo, showing 3 of ours teams (Pythons, Bears, Pumas) playing at the same time on Saturday morning, at St Mary’s Park. They were subsequently followed by the Lightnings, Raiders, Dynamos and Lions. So good luck to all our teams and let the football re-begin…
Thanks to Mark and Dan for marking out the pitches ahead of the games on Friday night
