After 12 years as drink manager for the club Tommy thought it was time to retire from the position, the work was getting a little harder for him every year and his health hasn't been the best for the last few years so it is understandable he have taken the decision.
He have done a fabulous job through his years not only as drink manager but also for some years as committee member.
We wish him all the best in his retirement from January 2020.
