Whilst we like playing in the rain, unfortunately, sometimes it's just not possible. As you know, at Briggs Road, our fields are always in top condition thanks to Ipswich City Council and we would like to keep them that way! Ipswich City Council may sometimes overrule our decision for games to be played.
When there are dangerous conditions such as hail and lightning, we have no choice but to close fields and postpone games. When this situation does occur, the Field Status on our Website will be updated as well as our Facebook page. Team Managers are notified as soon as possible.
The call to postpone games will be made as early as possible and all steps are taken to try and allow football to be played.
At Western Pride FC, we have an internal system that allows you to set up one account and one payment for the whole family (or extended family).
You are also able to log in at any time to change your contact details, check payments etc. We offer online payment of registration fees and you can also apply for a payment plan (a minimum 25% deposit is required). The payment plan will be required to be paid off before the end of January 2020 (no exceptions).
As you can appreciate, running a club of this size takes quite some effort and we rely upon the generosity of volunteers at all levels of the club in giving their time. It has become increasingly obvious that a change is required to support the club we all appreciate and want to be part of.
As a result, the Club has decided to introduce a ‘Volunteer Levy’ for Season 2020 to impress upon players' families the urgent need to have volunteer assistance to successfully operate the functions of the club.
Those that participate in a range of voluntary roles available, will have this levy refunded after the regular season. WPFC is not asking too much, just 10 hours per family for the season.
