Anything else to add?

This Heritage Society helped me physically and emotionally when it started. It not only helps the club with the information and, at times, guidance, but has given the fans an enormous lift in very barren years and trophyless seasons. I’m sure we were the first club heritage group to start the ball rolling, long may it continue to do so. ​
