Really sorry to hear your news Jason.

Thoughts are with you and the family.

He'll be taking his place in the box seat up there in the blue skies amongst the fellow blues already there. One day we'll all meet up together to support the lads from above.

Rest in Peace.

Forever Blue

You see that burnt out world that he is living in

Really sorry to hear about Ian passing on Jason. I saw him a couple of weeks back and he was in top form as always.

I enjoyed our awaydays in the early days of CFC in the Bowdler bus. A few beers were always had and the atmosphere was always feisty - especially if we had a dodgy ref and Ian would always give it to em!!

I'll have a pint for him tonight mate.

All the best,
Darren
