As the club's Men's match secretary, Peter Fry, assisted by the Men's committee sort out all the arrangements, including selection. All men are entitled to put themselves forward - sign up on the notice board at the start of the outdoor season - for consideration. 

The two Carols (Fry and Dennis) do a grand job in the kitchen preparing the after match meals and there's always someone on hand to ensure the bar meets the demand.
