Un­sung he­roes de­serve a shout for their tire­less work

Bangor Mail - - SPORT -

THIS will be the fi­nal col­umn of this sea­son so I’ve de­cided to write about peo­ple.

When Kevin and Ben an­nounced they were step­ping down from their me­dia du­ties, it was a sim­ple re­minder just how im­por­tant peo­ple are in a semi-pro­fes­sional foot­ball club.

When you think about the as­tound­ing amount of work that Kevin has un­der­taken for the pro- gramme, and its fab­u­lous qual­ity, you re­alise the im­por­tance of peo­ple, and you see it when Ben and Kevin con­duct post-match in­ter­views.

You see it in the post­sea­son award of flow­ers to Linda, Vera and Diane. They have con­trib­uted decades of ser­vice in the good name of Ban­gor City

You see it in the fan­tas­tic job that Mike the grounds­man has done for decades.

Where would our play­ers have been with­out his in­ter­na­tional foot­ball stan­dard pitch? Would we have hosted so many im­por­tant matches at Nant­porth?

So, peo­ple fill the roles, and ev­ery­one does their bit, so things keep turn­ing over ef­fi­ciently.

As a proud vol­un­teer for the last 10 years, I can say it feels won­der­ful to do some­thing to help your club.

There­fore, it is with a heavy heart that I will be step­ping down from club shop du­ties.

I would like to thank ev­ery­one that has vis­ited the club shop over the last 11 years.

Whether it’s been to buy some­thing, or ask when we’ll be get­ting more hats, or just to pop in for a moi­der, I have en­joyed lis­ten­ing to each and every syl­la­ble.

I ac­tu­ally feel quite hum­bled to have played a very small part in the life of the club over the last decade.

As a fi­nal comment, we thank Kevin Ni­chol­son and GTF for their fan­tas­tic ef­forts over the last sea­son. Good luck in the fu­ture lads!

The AGM is nearly upon us, so, if you fancy of­fer­ing your ser­vices to the BCFCSA, just turn up and put your­self for­ward.
