Subject: Year 7/8 Winter Tournament POSTPONED

Hi all,
Due to the weather being terrible over the weekend St John’s Fields are flooded out and closed for at least one week.
They are going to get back to us with a possible postponement date as we hope to still hold this fantastic event.


We thank all those who have put so much work into this tournament and hope to be able to still use it! Especially the work that has gone into draws, venues and umpires.
Thank you to the coaches and managers who have shuffled work dates to be there.


Regardless of the weather tomorrow and how sunny it is, the fields will still be unplayable.


We will be in touch ASAP with a new date.
