Keys Park Pitch shows its decline since the 6 July. Now with 45th session played on to date. Val and myself have tried to keep it going as Volunteers and with limited equipment.

Hi Craig it was a pleasure to talk to you on Tuesday night, thanks for your kind comments on the pitch and I hope Val and I will meet you again in March. Please keep out of the Red. Your team defended heroically well done.
