Birthday sur­prise for coach Dane Ran­dall

Jamaica Gleaner - - TODAY - Janet Sil­vera Gleaner Writer

FAM­ILY AND friends gath­ered at the Smoked Mar­lin Restau­rant in Hanover last Sun­day to sur­prise one of Mon­tego Bay’s most beloved coaches – Dane Ran­dall.

What he thought was go­ing to be a quiet din­ner with his lead­ing lady, Denise Campbell, on his 50th birthday, turned out to be a jersey-themed party with close friends and fam­ily who have im­pacted his jour­ney through­out the years.

Ran­dall was moved to tears as he was hugged and em­braced by his loved ones, some of who flew in from other coun­tries to cel­e­brate with him. The night was laced with speeches from the likes of vet­eran coach Steve Buc­knor to his num­ber one team (fel­low coaches) whom he sees as his chil­dren.

Food, mu­sic and en­ter­tain­ment were cou­pled with con­ver­sa­tion, laugh­ter and dance as friends rem­i­nisced on the old days and wished Ran­dall well for years to come.
