Happy New Season!  After the turmoil and upset of the last two years it will be nice to relax back to something resembling normality. 

 

I plan to follow previous protocols inasmuch as the summary section of a Report is provided mainly for sports sections of the public press, as well as for anyone else who doesn’t want to plough through the Full Report section, which is aimed at those who have been kind enough to say that they enjoy reading my stuff and also to go on the club website.
