Goodbye and Good Luck!

This is just a brief note to say I won't be contributing to the website in 2013. I will be following Ricky to Wandin but a piece of my heart will remain with the boys who run out in the green and gold each week. There are also a number of loyal fans I will miss as much as the players.

My heart aches a little as 15 wonderful years at Mooza B come to an end, but I'm sure you know I'd crawl over broken glass to see the Puss in action-no matter what guernsey he is wearing. Have a great season boys.

Love,

Mark Dentmore
