The funeral of Frank Tracey will take place on Friday (17th) at 2 p.m. at St. Edmonds Chucrh, which is at the junction of Oxford Road and Radley Road.  I hope to be there and if anyone else could make it that would be nice.  Parking spaces are limited so alternative parking is advised, perhaps on Audlett Drive

p.s.  At the half way stage of the season I beg the questions. Can Legion fend off Utd. ‘A’ and The Croft to win ‘A’ section ?  Who will come out on top in ‘B’ section ?  Will  Utd. ‘C’ actually win a game ?  Does anyone give a s**t ?

p.s.  Fees from competition entries amounted to £197 and although it was down on last season it is still a very good turnout for comps – well done.

p.p.s.  Don’t forget to indulge in the rolls as along with comp fees is our only means of income.

p.p.p.s.  The handicaps are playing a big part this season as ‘A’ section sides have picked up 37 pts so far while ‘B’ section sides have amassed  53.
