The next race (and final cross country for the season) is on 19th Feb 2017 at Birchwood Forest Park.

Any Panther can enter and its free to take part as the club pays for this.


Panthers Award Night – Saturday 18th March 2017

The annual members Panther Awards Night (with an Irish theme!!) will be held on Sat 18th March at Newburgh Cricket Club! Times to be confirmed but there will be food and a DJ and it’s only £5.
Food arrangements – everyone is asked to bring something (also known as a fuddle or jacobs join?!) so we can ensure there is plenty of choice! However we have decided not to operate a list so are relying on you all to try and bring a good selection of hot and cold, mains and desserts! To help with this please feel free to collaborate and if helpful, post on Facebook what you are bringing with you to cut down on duplication.
We are expecting a fab night, no need to buy tickets or anything and you can pay your £5 on the night as our esteemed treasurer will be collecting via a bucket so don’t forget your cash!

Hope you can make it!

(This is a members only event – if you are interested in joining our club, details are on the ‘our club’ page, where you can send a message via this website. You can also ask to join our secure Facebook page)
