“I’ve seen a lot of football at this club, ever since I was five years old, and we played in blue and there were two of the old stands.
“From when I first came in here as a Vice-President [in 1973], to see us now, we took it on an amazing journey. I’m so proud, considering where we came from, what this club was, what it means to the community. That was Graham’s passion, and we carried that on during Covid with the hospital next door. It’s been an amazing trip.”
