Sad news this week as former player Martin Winter lost his long and brave battle with cancer. Martin was a handy forward in local football. His figures in our 'appearances and goals list' do not do him justice, as they came at the end of his playing days.
Those of us lucky enough to have played with him will never forget his wry humour or pessimistic assessments of our chances in the game ahead. Sayings like, "This lot are going to stuff us today!" were not uncommon.
Our thoughts are with his family at this time.
