Please note that there is a cricket tournament this Saturday and Sunday at SCC Dempsey Playing Fields, so parking in the small SCC car park will be very limited if possible at all, and traffic will be very congested. In addition there are 2 JRCS games being played during training on Saturday, and 3 JRCS games on Sunday.

We recommend you park up at Dempsey Hill behind De Paulo restaurant, and accessing the Dempsey pitches via the staircase beside Siri House restaurant which is now open.


We are glad to confirm that we are back at Dempsey for all age groups on both Saturday and Sunday.

Please take note of the important information below regarding access to Dempsey

1) The car park will be VERY FULL so we recommend parking at Dempsey Hill restaurants and accessing the playing fields via the staircase beside Siri House restaurant.

2) A section of the football pitch will be out of bounds as this is still undergoing work. The area will be marked off with rope or cones. PLEASE DO NOT GO INTO THIS AREA.

3) There is a large blue water tank just past the containers near the rugby pitch. This area is out of bounds and will be marked off. PLEASE DO NOT GO INTO THIS AREA.

The importance of the upcoming Spring Budget on March 6 cannot be overstated. With a general election looming in the UK, all eyes are on Jeremy Hunt as it presents his final chance to deliver a headline-making statement that could define the Conservative Party’s stance heading into the election. 

With significant UK tax changes already revealed, such as reductions in the capital gains exemption and dividend allowance, alongside adjustments to National Insurance contributions, Peter Webb, Head of Tax Advisory at The Fry Group, will explore what the Spring Budget means for you, providing invaluable insights on how to navigate the evolving UK tax landscape. 

What can I learn from this webinar?

  • What new changes have been announced
  • Actions you may be able to take to reduce the impact of any changes
  • What can we expect from a change in government
  • What we already knew was going to change from the start of the new tax year

There will be plenty of opportunity for Q&A. Please submit any questions you would like answered to 

Kindly register for the webinar below. You will then be sent a confirmation email with all the webinar details.

With the recent very wet and muddy conditions, we would like to remind parents, and players, to ensure they wash their faces with water after playing in muddy conditions. 

Microsporidia are spore-forming single-cell intracellular parasites. Since the early 2000s, microsporidia keratoconjunctivitis has been increasingly reported in Singapore, mostly after eye contact with wet soil or mud during outdoor activities. The main presenting signs and symptoms are eye redness, pain/foreign body sensation, photosensitivity and blurred vision.

All players who have been in contact with soil or mud should maintain good personal hygiene. We would encourage the children to bring extra water to wash their faces if they come into contact with mud, and to use different towels for the face and body immediately after training. If your child will use them, you may wish to keep eye drops in your children’s bag so they can apply them after training. 

Do seek early medical consultation (e.g. an eye specialist) should your child experience symptoms such as itchy and painful red eyes with discharge occurring from two days up to three weeks after being in contact with soil or mud.


If your team is taking part in games or tournaments, we would kindly ask that you ensure that your child is wearing their full and up-to-date kit. They must wear the latest playing jersey/touch tops which have our sponsors latest logos on them (the two logos on the left). Please keep the old tops with the old logos just for training (for clarity, the old logos have the lighter blue in them).

We need to honour our sponsors contribution and support by wearing the tops that they have sponsored for us.
