CLUB NEWS: Update from Hull CSC

Preparations are now well underway for the new season at Hull as pre-season training commenced on Tuesday 15th February and saw a healthy turnout of 13 juniors followed by 13 seniors on what was a damp and cold evening. Coupled with a further 20 plus parents and volunteers it was an encouraging start to the year. Unfortunately the following Sunday’s session was called off due to the previous days snow and subsequent rain leaving the track unsuitable. The second club night of the season last Tuesday also saw similar numbers in attendance.
