Just like to thank all that attended the function last night, we hope you all enjoyed yourselfs.
Big thankyou goes out to Gary Thornton, Jon Goddard, James Ford, Mick Ramsden and Ian Wilson for the excellent question and answer session.
Im sure those of you that attended were supportive of the things gary and the club are doing, as gary said we are as one and have to work together as one.
By the way the new signing is a twenty old prop from cas, a no holds barred animal, (not my words)

Also great news on the new partnership with Saint Johns which will provide us with a state of the art training facilities at the nestle site.

On the evening we raised £452.10 which will go to the squadbuilder fund.

Tickets now available for our family xmas party night on sat 8th dec at the huntington sports club, you can reserve yours by contacting me on here, but dont leave it too long, we sold a good amount last night.

SUPPORT US AND THE SQUADBUILDER = BETTER CLUB.


Over to you shades for anything I left out!!!!

Great night Saturday, thanks to Big Ian, Gary H and the rest for that.

Impressed by the way Gary T spoke, seemed very focused, commited, talked a lot of sense & keen
to build a close relationship with the supporters , things looking really positive for 2013.

Echo the above, great night and a brilliant turn out from the supporters and club officials. GT spoke a lot of sense about player signings, stating that there's very little point in some big name signings as the players just aren't interested in getting stuck in (Tansey anyone?) and they tend to be a waste of money, we're better signing young hungry players who want to make a name for themselves. Also gave his thoughts on the dual-reg system and his hopes for it to be of our benefit next year and spoke about our new training facilities at St. John College and the big plus points that will have.

Seems to be a feel-good factor around the place, plenty of communication between the club and supporters and long may it continue, I'm sure if anyone has anything they want to know, GT, Rammo, Fordy, Ian Wilson & JG will be more than happy to answer.

Also Gary Thornton filled in a standing order form as he said he wants to add to the Squadbuilder himself, top man!

Think all Knights fans are feeling much better than 6 months ago Simon, just need a couple of wingers and an halfback but it's early days yet.

We'll be fine on that score. We'll have better wingers than we've had for years I'm sure.
