WEST COUNTRY TOURS

In 1978 Pelsall began to tour the West Country each Spring Bank Holiday. These are a family affair with wives, children and friends going along. The resort of Brean is used as a base and caravans are used for accommodation, as freedom of time is essential to enable families to leave on time for various matches. Regular hosts of Pelsall are: Ashcott & Shapwick, Claverham, Winscombe, Bohemians, Flaxbourton, Mendip Acorns, Midsomer Norton. The majority of tour games have been exciting with the weather playing its part.

In 1984 Pelsall returned home undefeated and over the years some good personal performances have been recorded:
