Our Local Newspapers & Publications
It is a hard time for our local papers and publications who keep us up to date all year on sports and community activities. Over the years we have got great coverage for club, county and national games. During the current crisis they are still operating and we appreciate their efforts especially in these difficult economic times. Its great to read and see all the links on line with old and many forgotten games being published. It helps us spend many a quiet hour being entertained and helps us forget our worries’ in the short term. We thank them all for their continued service at this vital time and we hope you all take the time to support them by buying a weekly paper or subscribing on line

It is with the deepest regret and sadness that we learned early this week of the sad passing of David Leen, Arrabella.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Kate, his two boys Harvey and Sam, his parents Betty and Con, brother Tony and to all the extended Leen family at this very difficult time.David played football with our club at every level.
David will be sadly missed by his many friends and teammates throughout the club.
