Do not leave this process for the last minute
Please do not leave this process until the night before as the club requires time to organise the paperwork for Skills Maintenance and if there are difficulties with the process then we don’t have enough time to resolve the issue. If you are having difficulties with the Skills Maintenance process then please contact the club
