Steve Patten-Hall- today was a very sad day as we said our goodbyes to Steve.As one would expect there was an excellent turn-out at his funeral as would befit such a well liked man.There were around 50 people there from the club which says a lot about the high regard he was held in at the club.RIP SPH
Steve Patten-Hall- it is with the utmost sadness that we have to announce that Steve passed away last night.Steve had been an absolutely integral part of the rise of the club over the last few years with both his junior coaching and his captaincy of the 4th X1 from when it was set up to 2 consecutive promotions.Both his children,James and Emily,are juniors at our club and Steve absolutely adored PCC. He was a top bloke who will be hugely missed by all at the club.It's an overused phrase but this really is a tragic loss,especially for his family-our thoughts are with you Abi,James and Emily. RIP SPH
Good news - we have been awarded a Grant of £400 to assist us with our Winter U9s Coaching programme-many thanks to the 'Sports Stars' scheme for the award.
