- Cowes Sports FC
COWES SPORTS FC would like to express their sincere thanks to Arthur Munday (Secretary Amesbury Town) and the three car drivers who came to our rescue yesterday afternoon when our Mini Bus developed an accelerator problem on the A303 just five minutes away from the ground. Arthur kindly got three Members from the club to come along to pick up the players in their cars which delayed kick off by 15 minutes. Thankfully the Mechanic that came too sort the problem enabling us to get the bus to the ground and although we did have a problem after leaving the ground we managed to do a temporary repair allowing us to get back to the Island. ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU TO AMESBURY TOWN FC MEMBERS AND SECRETARY ARTHUR MUNDAY.
GLYNN M SKINNER
Cowes Sports FC
- Fareham Town FC
The League are pleased to publish a letter received from Fareham Town Football Club thanking Fawley AFC for this truly wonderful gesture. On behalf of Matt and Fareham Town Football Club thank you very much not just for this, but the long list of best wishes we have received from players, officials and supporters of Clubs throughout the League.
I would like on behalf of all the players and officials of Fawley AFC wish Matt Page a speedy recovery from his injury.
We were unaware at the time of the seriousness of this injury.
After hearing about his injury the players decided to donate the proceeds of our “football card” from our match against Bemerton on Wednesday to any fund that you have running for Matt.
I have made the figure up to £50 and if you can let me know how I can forward this to you, .
Good luck to Matt and to Fareham Town in the next round of the FA Vase.
