Its Goodbye From Me

It’s goodbye from me, I have left Sale Sharks after 17 years.

I have worked with some great people at the club, both on and off the field, and there are so many memories that will stay with me forever.

This board to has been fun (mainly) and I have always strived to do my best for YOU the supporters who Brian Kennedy once said ‘Supporter is King’, as without them there is no club. I was given the role of Fans Liaison Manager back in 2007 and am sure I will be judged on the work I did. The Forum has been a challenge at times but mainly fun and I have always tried to respond promptly to queries raised and always answered emails as quickly as possible too.

I wish Simon,Michelle and Ged all the very best in trying to take the club to the highest level possible and in Jon Dorsett the club have an excellent CEO.

Please take care of yourselves

Over and out
Swanny

Swanny, may I be the first to say you will be sorely missed. I have enjoyed your comments on here and your contribution to the club has been immense.
Good luck in whatever you move on to next.

Best wishes, Swanny, and enjoy whatever it is you do next.

We haven't always seen eye to eye but I have enjoyed sparring with you, on and off Board, and I always respected your right to be told how wrong you were! grinning smiley

Maybe now you can contribute to this august and highly esteemed forum without having to toe the party line.



No matter what you say, or how you say it, someone somewhere will deliberately go out of their way to be offended.

Thanks for everything Dave. Your support for the fledgling supporters club was invaluable. Hope you remain a fan, maybe we can be treated to some of your more forthright opinions now the gloves are off.



Unhappiness, where's when I was young
And we didn't give a damn
'Cause we were raised
To see life as a fun and take it if we can

Wow. Left field. Personal thanks for your help with my lads during the EP years. It's been emotional! Good luck fella.

...at least you will be able (perhaps) to get a lie-in, your first in seventeen years.

Thanks, Swanny, and best wishes for the future.

So sorry to see you leave Sale Sharks. Although we've had plenty of disagreements, you've always put the supporters point of view over to those above you.

I'm sure this board has provided plenty of laughter for you on a Monday morning match debrief meeting.

You'll always be welcome on here and thanks so much for all your help over the years. Will we see you at AJB in a supporting capacity?

Well this has come as a bit of a shock. End of an era indeed.

We've had our differences, but you've always worked hard and long for what you've seen as the best interests of the club. So well-earned plaudits for that. And, like others, I too have enjoyed the occasional sparring. You'll be missed.

Hope you are fine and very best wishes for the future.

Missed you tonight organising the traffic in and out of the stadium. It was rubbish! Seriously, thanks for everything you have done for the supporters and the club. I wish you well in whatever you are doing.
