Message from our Ladies Captain - It’ll be lovely to have lots of Priory vests on the start line supporting each other after the devastating news of Fiona’s death. Fiona has competed for Reigate in an impressive 16 consecutive seasons of which she won 4 and was key to keeping the Reigate ladies in division 1 for so many years - hopefully we will do her proud on Saturday.
