Any problems or queries regarding any of the above, please do not hesitate to contact me on 07966398190 a.s.a.p. either by text or calling me, otherwise I will see all of you that are down to play for the Fathoms this Saturday ( 1st. December 2012 ) at the pitch at Beaconside and can you please let me have your match fee before this game starts.

Also before this game starts, I will be dishing out to every Fathom Player, a Stafford Hockey Fixture Handbook ( which were only given to me to-nite at the hockey committee meeting I attended ), this handbook lists all fixtures ( home & away ) for 2012 / 2013 for all Stafford Hockey Club’s five teams, including our Fathom Team / 5th Team.

Bloxwich Fathom Team have said after this game has finished ( Re : around about mid-day ) that they will be coming back to our Hockey Club to get changed & showered and to have something to eat and drink, so everyone who plays / is involved with this fathom team game, are all welcome to join our opposition ( i.e. Bloxwich Fathoms ) for teas, which are paid from the match fees you pay.

As the Christmas festive period is fast approaching, I would appreciate if all fathom players listed above, could text or e mail me a.s.a.p. with whether or not they are available to play in the next 2 fathom games on 8th. & 15th. December 2012 ( details are these 2 games are listed below for your information ), so that as Captain of the side, I can try and plan / organise for these 2 games in advance and I thank-you for your cooperation in helping me in sort out our fathom team for these 2 games :

Saturday 8th. December 2012 – Away to Bridgnorth Fathoms – 2pm push back on GRASS pitch outside Bridgnorth Hockey Club ( Victoria Road, Bridgnorth WV16 4LB ) – Team / Players to meet at Stafford Hockey Club at 12.30pm for journey to Bridgnorth – 3 to 4 Drivers required for this game, so if you can drive to this game, I would appreciate if you could let me know this, with your availability for this game.

Saturday 15th. December 2012 – Away to Cannock Fathoms – 11.30am push back at Cannock Hockey Club, Chase Park, Church Lane, Hatherton Cannock WS11 1RR – Team / Players to meet at Stafford Hockey Club at 10.30am for journey to Cannock Hockey Club – 3 Drivers required for this game, so if you can drive to this game, I would appreciate if you could let me know this, with your availability for this game.

Also with the above fathom game against Cannock Fathoms being the last one before Christmas, it would be really good / nice, if all fathom players could purchase a text santa hat for charity from Asda Re : all fathom players wearing these santa hats through out the duration of this particular fathom game.

Plus I have recently been given a number of tickets by Stafford 1st. Team Captain, Simon Parnell for Stafford’s Hockey Club Xmas Party, as the first team are organising this event, everyone is welcome and it is being held at Stafford Hockey Club on Saturday 15th. December 2012 and it all kicks off at 7.30pm and the tickets for this party are £5 each and for your £5 you get a buffet, disco and I think there be some festive party games & hats thrown in as well by the first teamers. So if you are interested in part taking in this event, then please feel free to purchase tickets from myself @ £5 a time.
