So many heroes this week, it reads like a list of Oscar nominees. Honourable mentions must go to Gareth Taylor and Richard Roomans for helping to drum up much-needed extra players so the Fifths fixture could go ahead. Also another well-deserved mention for the terrific work of last week’s hero Nick English and his partner, Lara, in manning the beer pumps and the barbecue. However… the winner is….drum roll… rip open the envelope… Sean Carmody, who has stepped in manfully, giving up loads of free time to assist groundsman Ross Courtney. Ross has himself been helping at Hitchin this week so Sean (and Freddie) was putting in the hard yards back at the Park. The ground is looking better than ever so our thanks and a huge slap on the back to Sean, who is pictured right with Ross, enjoying a well-earned beer.
Every week, we salute the member or supporter who has gone that extra mile to help make our wonderful club that little bit more wonderful. We’d like to offer him or her a holiday in the sun or the latest smartphone for their selflessness but instead they will have to make do with this small public pat on the back.
