SW Cup Sunday 4 August 2013

posted in: News | 0

The timetable for the SW Cup can be found by clicking here.

The club is only allowed to enter 1 athlete per event per age group, therefore PLEASE help your team managers by letting them know immediately if you are available.  They have the difficult task of selecting a team based on performance, attendance and availability so please give the club the best chance of success by letting them know if you are available or if your circumstances change at the earliest opportunity.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS NOT AN EVENT AT WHICH YOU CAN JUST TURN UP. ONLY THE NOMINATED TEAM AND RESERVES WILL BE ABLE TO COMPETE.

We wish the Exeter Team well!
