Comrades, there will a Reigate Priory FC Quiz Night on Saturday 28th January with our very own Magnus Lomas Magnusson (RIP) in charge of proceedings. The quiz will start at around 19:30, entry is £5 per person with maximum team numbers of 4. Included in the rounds will be some physical/skill (drinking!) games. All are welcome. We’d like to get about 40 people for this. The prize money will be half the fund, the rest will go to the club. Could you kindly let me know whether you will be attending or not over the next week.
– Mark ‘RPFCs#1’ Halsey.
After a massive effort by all the players the pitches were ready to go, in its first year five teams competed for the much coveted trophy. After hours of games and many tired legs the two finals were played. The first, for the plate, between 3rd place in the group and 4th place was decided on a tight penalty shoot out, with a 2-1 win for Holland (Sporting Forest).
The final, between The Drop Outs and Italy, was a more respectful affair after the feisty group game The Drop Outs were eventual winners by four goals to one.
Well done to all the teams, it was a great day and now we look forward to the 2016/17 season starting and also next year’s 7s Tournament.

There will be a slight increase in the annual membership fee from £40 to £45, however each member will be given an official club garment to be warn before matches which is theirs to keep. The match fees will remain as before.
The first team charges will also change for the 16/17 season. There will now be an £85 annual membership for first teams players but no match fees. When a player is demoted to a lower side they will be able to play 4 games without having to pay a match fee. Once they have used those 4 games they will be eligible for a £10 charge per game unless it is for the first team again.
Students will be charged half the annual membership, but full match day per game costs. Junior team players will not have to pay the annual membership at all, but will have to pay full match day per game costs.
There will be three registration periods, two after training and another on a Saturday. During that time players will sign on for leagues, give us their contact details and pay at least half of the annual subs. If there are no annual subs paid they will not be eligible for selection. The remaining annual subs will be collected by February at the latest.
As confirmed in the survey communication will be improved. All players e-mail addresses will be added to a club mailing list for social and club matters. With information backed up with a new and improved website with up-to-date information.
The previous role of social secretary will be expanded to a social committee. There will be a full social calendar produced so dates are known before hand and well publicised. Michael Walker retains the position as social secretary with the rest of the committee made up of Paul Hayter, Ryan Stratton, Juan Carlos and Aisha Eckford-Soper.
The membership card scheme will be continued this season for both senior and youth members. The current sponsors will hopefully be retained as well as new businesses added. Again it is imperative players use the cards at every opportunity to enable us to retain and attract further sponsorship.
Players bringing in over £200 sponsorship for the season will be excused their annual membership subscription.
This season the youth section will have 25 teams, up from last seasons 21. The committee agreed that we need to increase the links between youth and adult, with that in mind from Under 16 up will be invited to attend pre-season training and under 17 upwards will be offered the chance to sign on and play for the senior sides as well as their youth teams.
The higher age groups will also have senior players aid with selected training sessions to increase the familiarity with senior players.
The club will be painted inside and outside at the end of June over a weekend and a few evenings too. The floor will be redone and the aim is to install new lighting. The ladies toilets will also be completely refitted.
Sunday 4th October from 2pm
A 1pm meet at the Park Lane clubhouse, for a 2pm footoff at Burstow, then back to the clubhouse for Arsenal vs Manchester United game. If you are unable to play in the Foot Golf then you are more than welcome to come down for the game afterwards.
