I’d like to thank absolutely everyone involved in my 60th birthday Past And Present game last Saturday for such a great afternoon and night, to all the former players of all ages who turned up to pull the shirt on again, to the current squad for the chair they presented me with, to all the supporters who attended and to all the staff who worked hard all day and night.
To everyone who sent cards and presents, a big thank you, there are so many bottles in the house I need to build a wine cellar!
A special thanks to the former players and coaches though, some of whom are the wrong side of 50 to be running around on a warm Saturday afternoon, a great effort boys so thanks a million. Thanks also to Simon Rees who refereed the game ably assisted by Huw Griffiths with some dubious decisions by his fellow TJ – Trigger.
We raised £2350.00 on the day for Prostate Cymru which is great.
Finally a big thank you to Mair, Nia, Katie, Steve Jones and Chris Davies for making all the arrangements and making the day a special one for me personally and one I hope enjoyed by everyone who attended.
