Hospital Field Update
It is with our utmost contempt we must announce that we cannot use the Hospital Field any longer. Between the NHS, the Wiltshire County Council and the Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group they have confirmed that we cannot have access to the pitch for the 2016 season. This is obviously a massive setback for the club in a time where we are trying to improve all facets of the club, both on and off the pitch. The worst part of this news is that is has not even been decided what the Hospital Field will be used for. So during the many months it will take all the various people to agree on what to build there, get the money and then actually start building it will probably be 2017 anyway.
On a lighter note we are happy to say that we do have alternate locations available for both our 3rd XI games and also all the youth fixtures that will have to be moved. Thanks to 3rd team captain Simon Chown we have been able to move all our 3rd XI fixtures to be played at Bratton Recreational Ground on the outskirts of Bratton. Our youth section fixtures have two locations where they can be moved too, we will confirm as soon as we can where that location will be.
If you have any questions on this matter please do not hesitate to contact Christine Davies (01225 752538) or John Carroll (07545228047) from the club.

We will also be having the pleasure of Stephen Lee, who will be out to prove the critics wrong who say he's the second best player in his house now!

We look forward to seeing you on the night!
It has been noted over the years that there is nobody at the club for people to talk to about any concerns or problems they have. Players discuss a wide range of issues amongst themselves. Without a formal method of airing and resolving these issues it can become a problem.
We're excited to announce that we have introduced a new position at the club. Phillip Rutland has been appointed as the Players Representative for the club. He is there for all players to note any feedback or concerns. The Players Rep is a completely independent position, separate from the Committee and the Clubhouse. Phil is contactable via Facebook, email (TCCrep@talktalk.net) or phone so if you have any feedback about anything, please let Phil know.
Thermaglaze - Club Sponsor
We are delighted to announce that Thermaglaze will be sponsoring the club for the next few seasons. We are very excited to work with Thermaglaze over the coming seasons and hope the partnership can be very successful.
Established in 1988, Thermaglaze has now arguably become the South West's leading home improvement company. They’ve achieved this through sticking to their ethos of offering good old-fashioned value for money, the very latest energy efficient, high security products and a customer service that’s second to none.
The playing kit for Trowbridge senior members is now available to order online.
The link above will take you directly to the site with the Trowbridge kit on it. Please pass this on to all your fellow club members and team mates, as we would really like to start looking like a club again.
All first team players will require a playing shirt and a cap to start the league season, which will be discussed during pre-season. Players for other teams – please consult your skippers.
