After ten years as the figurehead of Fishponds Old Boys, Chairman Chris Towill has decided to stand down from the role at the AGM for personal reasons. A tough decision, but one which we all fully respect.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank him for all his hard work and dedication over the years.
Chris assures us he will still be there every Saturday to offer his experience and support in any way possible, but feels it is the right time to take a break.
The divisions for the 2010/11 Suburban League have been announced.
This season there will be the same 7 divisions, with the difference being all will contain 15 teams, making a total of 28 games per season plus Cup games.
Due to the larger divisions there is almost certain to be at least one night match for each team at the beginning of September.
Fishponds Old Boys teams will play in Premier Division 1, Division 1, Division 3 & due to the restructuring the 4ths have been promoted to Division 4.
