IT HAS BEEN A GREAT PLEASURE TO WORK FOR STAFFORDSHIRE RUGBY UNION OVER THE YEARS DURING WHICH TIME I HAVE EXPERIENCED GREAT COMRADESHIP, MET WONDERFUL

PEOPLE, SOME BECOMING GREAT FRIENDS. THIS TOGETHER WITH KATH’S SUPPORT HAS MADE IT ALL WORTHWHILE.

I WISH TO EXPRESS MY APPRECIATION AND SINCERE THANKS TO ALL WHO CONTRIBUTED
