OLD TIMERS DAY
Who let the Old Dogs out. It’s that time of the year again for the old Guys and Gals to get together from Star, Spotswood Old Boys and Spotswood United, swap the same stories that get told every year and share a beverage or three.
The clubrooms are open from Midday. Come along for a light lunch before an afternoon of rugby watching.
Make sure you let your old team mates know about this event so there is no excuses!
