It’s been a month of mixed results for the First Team  League wise we drew 2 -2 at home to Haverhill Rovers coming back from 2-0 down. We then lost at home by the odd goal in three to Godmanchester Rovers having played for twenty minutes with ten men. We were thrashed away by third placed Coggeshall Town but then thrashed Wivenhoe Town at home by 4 goals to nil. A brace from Cameron Nichols and a goal apiece for Callum Dongray and Lee Hammond did our goal difference the world of good. In the League Cup we beat Long Melford 6 -5 on penalties following a 1-1 draw. Lee Hammond was our goalscorer in the Suffolk premier Cup we lost 3-0 at home to Brantham Athletic.

The Reserves thought they had won their first league game of the season beating Ipswich Wanderers Reserves away but a few days later Wanderers withdraw from the league. Continue reading “Sports Club Report December 2017”

Memorial Hall – Works Update

Work in the hall is progressing very well and is currently running slightly ahead of schedule.  Insulation layers are being installed to each internal wall which will be about six inches thicker once the work is completed.

An initial stage payment representing 30% of the total project cost has now been made.  The three new windows have been ordered via the Parish Council and will be installed during the week commencing 6th November.  If work continues at this rate the hall may even be available again before Christmas!

Website upgrade and content updates

The page for ‘Churches’ has been split into two so that there is a separate page for St. Mary’s and the Congregational Church.

The downloadable pdf’s for the Walsham Walks have now all been added and have the Walsham-le-Willows logo.  This is an example for the Hartshall Lane Walk.

Going forward it is hoped that  information will be supplied so that the Sports Club Report can be added to the web site each month.

Quick re-route so as to follow the coast road to Newgale and then head inland to Haycastle. Unfortunately this new route took me, in the end over the Preseli Mountains, but the view was great, the wind blew hard – in the right direction – and the descent was long and fast.
