...I received an email, of which the contents came as more than a little surprise! This was the middle of January...
After picking myself up off the floor, and taking a few days to think about things, I replied...giving a positive answer.
It then went quiet for nearly two months, and I thought that was it. Suddenly another email arrived apologising for the delay, and was I still okay for things.
My correspondent was a guy called Gary Haines, and to lots that will mean absolutely nothing...to a few they'll recognise the name. A couple more emails passed between us, and it led to me being featured in my team's programme, on the "Fan Focus" page for the Monday game against Carlisle.
Yes, that was me.
I think I'm still in shock...
PS...we also won!
