The club are very aware that friendlies can be a useful exercise in trying out new things, getting game time for players if the organised league games have been cancelled etc. Pre-season, particularly, it can be very useful to play a couple of friendly games to prepare for the new season.

But... please be aware that during the season, friendly games are bottom of the pile in terms of priority when we're also scheduling league and cup fixtures and that organised league / cup games can be rescheduled by the leagues without us having a say in it. If that happens and a clash then occurs with your friendly, the rescheduled league / cup games will get priority if there are no other available pitches.

If you want to offer to host a friendly game, please check with Chris Allen first that a pitch is available and in a condition where we're happy to allow the game to go ahead.

Pre-season, the only venue we have available for friendlies is generally Langton Green Rec. so you'll need to fit in with lots of other teams, particularly on weekends, so please don't agree to anything without checking in with Chris first.
