We missed the boat with home games because we didn't know what division we would be in until late. Gary Johnson did not want to play a team from the same league. By the time our play off adventure eneded most teams were fully booked. We are looking for top class European opposition to play at home. Watch this space.

I am sure you will crow bar a decent home fixture into the pre season games. I am sure a lot of your fans would like a look at the team for the season ahead.
