EADT ARTICLE  (May 25)

You may have read in today's East Anglian Daily Times the article "Paul Bugg turned down Long Melford hotseat to take on Diss Town manager's role".

We would like to clarify that, contrary to what it implies in the article, the club has not offered the manager's position to anyone yet.


THANK YOU  (May 24)

Thank you to Steve Hale for the following message received today:

"I would just like to drop you a line to say thank you for enabling us to use your facilities on a Sunday morning this season when we were left without a pitch. We at the Bay Horse have been running a football prediction competition throughout the season which helped build up our club funds, and as the team is sadly now no longer carrying on we thought it would be a good way to show our appreciation by donating some of our remaining funds to put towards the reparation of your roof and have donated £50 towards this cause. Once again thank you for your help and good luck ahead of next season."


PRE-SEASON FRIENDLIES  (May 22)

The club's first confirmed pre-season friendly is on Saturday 8th July (1st Team home v Braintree Town, 3pm kick off).

And the Reserves have a friendly pencilled in for Sat 22nd July away to Alresford in the Border League.


HOSPICE CUP FINAL  (May 18)

The Reserves after beating Bury Rams on Tuesday will play in the final of the Hospice Cup (or Mizkan Charity Cup to use it's sponsors' name). 

The final is on Saturday against Mildenhall U18s and takes place at Great Barton FC (3.30pm kick off).

CAN YOU HELP?  (May 17)

Heavy overnight rain has left us with a problem with flooding via the clubhouse roof, help is urgently required to bail out the water, please come along and help if you can.

CONDOLENCES  (May 17)

We regret to have to inform you all that Mrs Cynthia Mills passed away during the night. 

Mrs Mills, a lovely Melford character and former Parish Councillor, was also lollypop lady to generations of Melford school children and supporter and helper at Long Melford Football Club. 

Condolences to Cynthia's family from everyone at Long Melford FC.

BURES UNITED  (May 11)

Congratulations to Bures United who won the Suffolk Primary Cup at Colchester United last night - particularly nice to see several ex Melford players lifting the trophy including Jack Hubbard, Jack Durey and Courtney Prince.
