It's a homage to ADOW this Saturday for me

It's a homage to ADOW this Saturday for me

2 years ago when he was not yet diagnosed with the awful virulent bowel cancel that killed him last October, my son and I met him in Leicester for the Wasps game.
He sent a WhatsApp photo of beers set up at the pub just to the right of the station, the Parcel Yard.
We drank and laughed, went to the game and had a great day.
Mark Long Leather shortly after that told me he had a bowel issue, went for a scan, then got the nightmare prognosis. Still made it to Allianz Park and we kept meeting but he sadly passed away after a brave fight.
Late forties with young children.
On Saturday my son Alexander and I will battle through Storm Dennis, railworks, making a 14 hour round trip from South coast.
Join us from 1230 hrs in the Parcel Yard for pre match drinks - and a glass to Mark. PM me if you want my number or just look out for 2 wasps
