This is the last match before Christmas, so it’s a chance for you to get some last minute presents in the club shop and have a festive drink.

For those with tickets for the Christmas Party, entry to the function room is from 6.30pm via the main entrance.

COURSE YOU CAN MALCOLM
It’s our fourth Malcolmses in as many weeks. Those of us with hair are losing it, those without are growing it but only in the form of Santa beards; red cabbage is outselling cranberry sauce in Colwyn Bay, and record sales of gaffer tape are baffling local retailers.

We have for your delectation Sleeping Ducks, a superbly named Ska band from Gorton/Rusholme/Failsworth (if they all have to get picked up in the same van let’s hope the driver sets off early). Find out more at https://m.facebook.com/SleepingDuckz/ - though actually Googling ’sleeping ducks’ is funnier and is guaranteed to make you go ’awwww’.

’Normal’ (I use the phrase loosely) food is planned - Vegan Ronay is doing us a lentil stew alongside Westwells finest tater ash and cheese pies. Baz is our compère. There’s probably a quiz. Get there for 1 on Sat when the SMRE bar opens in order to avoid missing owt, we’ll be delighted to welcome you. CYCM - where love is the licensee.
