16/30. Football matters.

Matt reported that their fun day made £650.00 which will go towards running costs for the next year.
The senior goal mouth has been levelled out.

Matt requested the Parish Council’s assistance with getting the barriers re-painted. If they get volunteers to do the labour could the council provide the paint?
Cllr Walton confirmed that the council can fund the cost of the paint and he will investigate prices for metal paint. Matt is to email the Clerk when they are ready to paint.
The club has a long term plan to get costings to strip the pitch back to improve drainage.
Cllr Bates commented that there used to be a ditch at the edge of the field which allowed drainage. He will show Matt its location so a plan can be put together to see if this will help the drainage problem.
