Looks like a decent sized car park. Anyone know how full it normally gets. Would prefer to drive there but don't wat to get there to find no space!

I doubt it will be full, but there's a garden centre opposite and I don't think there are any parking restrictions in Snakey Lane .

COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & keg; Special.

A hoppy blonde ale brewed with Pale Ale and Lager malts, Atomic Blonde is hopped with Citra, Amarillo, Summer and Mosaic. A burst of tropical fruit aromas leads to flavours of peach and sweet grapefruit to create a refreshing beer with a balanced bitterness.

For once I'm speechless ! It's probably all right for 9-15 , but I suspect the front row will struggle with this .

Not my taste either but it's the thought that counts! Best served with a cocktail umbrella.....

Totally agree with you YD. I hope there is a good gate, there are a few of us from LW & LWSC who are unable to make the first game of the new era

Latest from Staines!

From what I've briefly seen of player availability, there's a good number that have put their names down for tomorrow with a mix of existing and new. Reports from training have been positive and now looking forward to our first chance to see how it comes together on to the pitch.

Don't forget that LW members get 10% off ODP bar prices. Naturally we all want the cheapest (and best!) beer possible but, especially after the discount, ODP was far from the most expensive encountered last season.

nld, you have missed my point, we are the visitors to Staines, like Staines will be visitors to ODP and visitors don't get a discount on beer!

Naturally, I don't want anyone to think I'm causing any mischief! Just stating facts!

I'm assuming that's a promotional price which is different to a discount. If there was a drinks promotion at ODP for then it would be available to visitors too! Members' discounts on drinks is now very common across sports clubs (Blackheath Rugby Club is just one example) and many golf clubs have been doing it for years. I think I first came across it in rugby at Redruth RFC on one of the trips down there.

I'm sure I've already offered to buy you a pint so catch me at the next game we both attend!

I believe that Dan Beard is the player that has sadly broken his leg, all the very best and hope all goes well with his quick and speedy recovery.

Some positive signs in the pre-season friendly on Sat, very unfortunate for Dan Beard, I believe he was having an operation yesterday, wishing him all the best on the recovery.
