Pete’s farewell – an honour and privilege

Thank you Boleyn 

Thanks for that first visit vs Brighton In The ZDS cup on a cold November night.
Thank you for the trips to the north back with the 6th formers when I was just 12, being ushered to the front.
Thanks for the protests against the bond scheme and the bloke with the corner flag in the centre circle. Thanks for the send off we gave the Legendary Mr Moore vs Wolves. Thanks for the spectacular goals scored by Paolo and Sincs.
Thanks for the surreal escape inspired by the little Argentinian.
Thanks for the heartache we have had vs so many good (but often bad) teams, it’s made the good time so much sweeter. Thank you for being a part of my childhood, and for making me feel the excitement I did when I was 11 years old on that cold November night.
It’s been and honour and a privilege to have shared these moments with you. You’ll never be forgotten, you’ll always be remembered, and you’ll forever be loved by those of us lucky enough to have enjoyed you.
Farewell Boleyn, farewell…..
