A big thank you to Gary and indeed Mrs. Tomany, who trekked down to Torquay this last weekend to represent the Club at the Southern League AGM at the last minute, after Chairman Dave had been hospitalised. Apparently for those clubs leaving the League it lasted 12 minutes!
Dave by the way is now transferred to St. Georges Hospital, Tooting and awaiting his triple by-pass operation, which was delayed but is now scheduled for Wednesday. Hope everything goes welll and that he is back at the club in no time.
Talking of time, Ashford now have working clocks for sale with the club crest on the front, courtesy of Tyrone Fernando, who will be very willing to sell you one for just a fiver, all proceeds to the Club. You can contact him on 07923 110349
