A THANK YOU post first of all …
Firstly, I would like to say a HUGE thank you to Chris, who gave up his time to escort me to the awards ceremony last night.
Chris, your presence very much kept me on a calmer level rather than going to the awards feeling like a complete nervous wreck. I can’t thank you enough for making this easier for me. If you ever get the chance to go to the same hotel again (as if –at those prices!) … make sure you take a map with you to help you get around next time
Seriously though … thank you so much
Secondly, I would like to say a HUGE thank you to Ian and Rob (greengenes) who very, very kindly made sure I would not be ‘out of pocket’ from this event, as far as any further travel expenses were concerned, drinks for the night and so on. I have a feeling there were a few other people who contributed as well, although (if I have that right), my apologies for not knowing who you are (and a huge thank you to yourselves as well). An absolutely awesome gesture from you guys. You’re the tops and I can’t thank you enough.
A HUGE thank you to Steve as well from GoS who kindly helped me in ‘my hour of need’ when I was being asked to email photos to the football league … and Steve kindly emailed some to me (taken from GoS)to forward on to the F/L. Thank you Steve (and Bob for helping me to get hold of Steve). Much appreciated.
And a HUGE thank you also needs to go to everyone who nominated me for this award in the first place. I still find that hard to believe … having the backing of James Brent, Carl Fletcher, Club President and countless members of the Green Army / Pasoti-ites (with Ian starting that off you little tinker you ) voting for me to receive this award . I am humbled beyond what any words could express
I know one thing for definite … the Green Army are a very special group of supporters that have all gone beyond and above in many, many ways and I don’t care what anyone says … we ARE the best
And lastly, but by no means least, a HUGE thank you to everyone who volunteered to help with those bucket collections, throughout those tough times. Absolutely brilliant and my hats go off to you all … Bob(keepitgreen) and his grandson Leon, Quentin (narrowboat), Liam (tynanhitsthe barnpost), Lesley Reardon, Al (oddball), Tom Smith, martynargyle, Mike Trigger and several other youngsters and all those (apologies for not remembering your names) who have helped along the way. Great support with this, as well as the fantastic support of the Green Army as a whole, who donated their money time and time again.
EVERYONE did their bit for our club
Once again, thank you for all your kind messages. I honestly can’t believe what the past few days have been like for me. It feels almost as if I’ve been on a different planet (and as wholly appreciative as I am of this … would like to come back down to earth asap).
