So sorry to hear this devastating news. Jamie played for us at Millbrook and was always friendly. This sort of news certainly brings home the triviality of football I think. Only 2 weeks ago a young lad in Millbrook aged 23 died leaving a partner and two young children and 4 weeks ago a lad my son plays rugby with died of cancer leaving a daughter of 21/2 and his wife pregnant (I am sure a lot of people will have known him as he lived locally).

Maybe I sound bitter but when you look at some of the scum living ie Ian Huntley, Ian Brady etc, it makes you wonder who decides our fate!!

I will pass some raffle prizes into the club for your use at the match and will put up a poster in our club advertising it if you have one.

I hope that they can enjoy whatever time they have together

My thoughts are with them, if only thoughts and best wishes could make everything better!
