As a club we will miss John greatly the work he put in behind the scenes was invaluable in raising the club to where it is today, he was still completing work for the club in November, even though his health was deteriorating he still completed a comprehensive fire risk assessment for the new clubhouse and a lot of the processes and health and safety documents in place today were completed by John.   A true greenback and gentleman his sense of humour and stories about his time in a band will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure to meet him.  All at the club pass our condolences on to Sue and all of Johns family.
