Good luck Dave!

Just to say a big best of luck to ‘Solider Boy’ Dave with his operation tomorrow. He’s going under the surgeons knife to repair his busted shoulder, which he injured midway through last season taking a worldly catch. We hope it goes smoothly and the damage isn’t too bad…..here’s to seeing you in the Knights Whites before the season is out!
