Scottish Thistles in Cumbria
Scottish Thistles Over 70 have been invited once more to play England LX Over 75 at 17:30 on Friday 18 May 2018 at Cockermouth School, Castlegate Drive, CA13 9HF and will be looking for revenge after losing 2-1 in the corresponding fixture in 2017. A trophy in honour of Gerry Toner will be presented to the winners of the match against England Over 75. At 10:15 ob Saturday 19 May 2018 (mid morning), they will play the England Over 70 squad instead of the planned match against a Cumbria select.

Please pay individually on arrival - £68 approximately for the room and £23.99 per person for the meal. There will be a tournament fee of £15 to include presentations and pitch fees.
