Watch England Here.

A new 60 inch television has been installed in time for World Cup. We invite you to support your favourite team here.
When England is playing the entertainment will not start until after the final whistle to ensure you don’t miss any of the action. We now have three televisions in the bar, so no matter where you sit you should be able to see at least one of them.

£100 World Cup Sweepstake.
For all England games plus the Semi-Finals and Final we will be holding a sweepstake for the time of the first goal scored during normal time.
Tickets will be numbered 1 to 45 plus 45+1, 45+2, 45+3, 45+4 and 46 to 90 plus 90+1, 90+2, 90+3, 90+4 and 90+5. There will be one ticket with referee printed on it.
If the first goal is scored after 45+4 or 90+5, then the holder of 45+4 or 90+5 wins. If the score is 0-0 after 90 minutes the referee wins.
Tickets at £1 each will be on sale from behind the bar prior to kick off.
The steward or her deputy’s decision is final.

Welfare Payout.

The June 2010 Welfare Payout will be made to qualifying members on Fridays between 7.00 pm and 9.00 pm and Sundays between 11.00 am and 1.00 pm during June, commencing on Sunday 6th June 2010.
The next Welfare Payments will be made in September 2010.

Charity Donations.

The club has donated £100 to the Kingsley Mums and Tots group to help pay for their trip to West Midlands Safari Park.
£100 has also been donated to the Headlands School.

Letter of Thanks.

A letter thanking us for the free hire of the concert room and the support & generosity of our members on the night has been received from the family of Lizzie Little. They tell us that they had a fabulous night. I’m sure all our members that attended will agree. The latest news is that the total raised is over £6,200 with money still coming in.

Please Support Good Causes.

There still some tickets available for the Natalie Hill charity night starring Northampton’s best ever group Accrington Stanley on June 5th. Tickets £5 each can be bought from the bar.

Olde English Cider.

It is with regret that due to lack of sales Thwaites Bitter will no longer be on offer. In time for the summer we will be offering our members a traditional English beverage in its place.
A recent review of Olde English Cider describes it as the most pleasant cider on the market; it is liquid gold as it leaves your taste buds alive and wanting more of the same, it is refreshing, bitter sweet and subtle. Olde English out tastes any other cider both foreign and indigienous.

Friday June 25th

Doors open at 11am, Get here early and start the day with one of Sarah’s set breakfasts for only £3.50. Available 11am to 2pm.
Enjoy an afternoon’s entertainment with Amy C and Book I’m & Risk It.

Sadly we have to report the death of Brian Pass. Our condolences go to his children Marie and Bryan.

Games news.

Mark Knight Memorial Trophy.

The poker players have purchased a trophy in memory of Mark Knight, which will be awarded to the player topping the league each season.

Pictured above is the first ever winner Ash Chudasama, club president Graham Burgess, Phil Knight and Lee Winter. Ash and Phil will be joined by Jonny Medeiros to represent Kingsley in June’s regional final.
