If i could ask each member to please get in touch with former players and would appreciate if you could keep doing so and try and get as many people at the day as possible. Furthermore this day is not exclusively a Boys day(hence the change in name to Trees Day), we want everyone associated with SHFC in some way involved. Please bring your partners, children, grandparents, ex-wives, future wives whoever wants to be involved.

This day is the beginning of something that we as a club want to grow and it is our intention that as the years go by, the main game on the Saturday will become a feature of Trees Day and the teams playing in that game will play for the ‘Trees Cup’. On Saturday, we will beginning this tradition and I have a trophy struck which will be issued to the winning team on Saturday afternoon.

After the game, we have a function arranged at the Golfy which both SHFC and Como teams and supporters are invited. At the Golfy there will be finger food supplied, drinks for guests will be at standard Golf Club prices.
