The sun shined on the new Durrington Astro for a great start to the season, and the seagulls were sufficiently intimidated to stay away!
First on the pitch were the juniors for a very well attended session, followed by the ladies. A brief pause at 12:45 to remember those affected by the Shoreham Air Disaster was followed by the official pitch opening with Durrington High School Headteacher Sue Marooney, our MP (and WHC patron) Tim Laughton, and our President Kathy Minchell.
Next up the Mens 1st XI took on a team from Reading HC followed by a tea of Thai green curry and beef salad. The rest of the mens section finished off the day, before repairing to the Manor Club House to toast the new season.
Training starts in earnest this week with most teams seeing some action next weekend. Get those membership forms in – it’s going to be a great season.
