The team thank John and the team at CMK for their support.

Without their support, clubs like Stratford wouldn't be able to function as well as they do.

Thanks also to the committee, the supporters and wives and partners for their support throughout the year.

Players would also like to thank Ra, Honkey and John for all their hard work throughout the year to make the team an exciting (and sometimes frustrating) team to watch.
