Funday 16th July and Raceday Collections 29th July


All the details about the two big club events in July – the Annual Funday and the Raceday Bucket Collection.

No Training 30th June

First item on the agenda is that there will be no training on Friday 30th June due to it being Knavesmire Primary School’s Sports Evening taking place on that day. Training will re-commence the week after as normal.


The annual Ovington Funday will this year take place on Sunday 16th July. 

The Funday is one of the highlights of the Ovington calendar and includes a six-a-side competition for junior, seniors and parents, alongside a BBQ, Tuck Shop, Bar and a Raffle/Tombola. Registration for the six-a-side, costing £1 per player, begins at 11am and the Funday lasts all afternoon. If you’re not able to make it in the morning, please feel free to come along in the afternoon. Any raffle/tombola prize donations are very much welcome.

It’s one of the best and well-attended days in the Ovington year and we’d very much hope to see you there.

To give you a taster of what it is like, here are some photos from Funday of the past.


Raceday Collection

Our raceday collection this year is on Saturday 29th July on the Music Showcase Weekend Meeting.

With lots of Club Developments planned for the near future, raising funds by the Bucket Collection at the Racecourse is vital to continuing the good work we have been doing over the past seasons and to improve facilities, including levelling the outfield & extend or rebuild the pavilion. It is most likely we are going to lose the use of Millthorpe School ground in the next couple of years.

As last year – we hope to have two teams of collectors. One collecting from about 16:30-18:00, with another 18:00-19:30. If you want to do the full three hours, you can. If you’re able to help out, please get in touch!

Alongside these two fundraising events – we would also like to thank all our club sponsors for 2017 for their continued support.

A really big thank you to our new Pavilion Sponsor, JWP Creers
