“We have a group chat as a club and it started with one of us posting a picture of a scan with their news, which was a nice surprise. Then over the year there just came more and more.

“One of the things we've tried to do as a club is be more family friendly and it's really added to that.

“We have a big pool of players so all the dads taking time off didn’t stop play.”
