Annual General Meeting 2023

At this year's AGM we welcomed our new club chair, James Arthur, and new vice-chair Jos Battle. James steps into the shoes (or should that be boots?) of Mark Unsworth, who held the post of chair for 10 years, and prior to that was a team coach for 10 years. In addition, during the last few years, Mark was also Safeguarding Officer, a role in which he will continue to serve next season.

We thank Mark for his many years of service to the club, which as well as our triumphs on the playing field, include the high of moving to Grange Park and the low of the Covid pandemic.

We wish James and Jos every success in their new posts, and look forward to KDR's continued growth and success in the coming years.

L to R: James, Mark, Jos

New height barriers at Grange Park

We are sure you will have seen the new vehicle height barriers at the entrance to Grange Park. These were installed in April during the week leading up to the hugely successful Beer Festival and will provide much needed enhanced security against unwanted guests in the future. We would like to place on record our thanks to Jim Parkin of Carnell Support Services who very kindly installed the barriers and timber fencing free of charge.

Eagle eyed TV viewers may have noticed something familiar about this Papa John's Pizza commercial, which was filmed at Grange Park in the autumn of 2019. If you look closely you may spot some of our players in the background.
