Some of you may remember John, who came over from Australia a few years ago, to visit for a month and support, in person, a team he'd simply "chosen" to support from far away. I think he saw four games during his visit, and we didn't win one - sound familiar?!

However, he had a whale of a time, had tours of the ground and training ground, lunch with the players and made lots of friends. I believe he was promised a signed Ben Coker shirt on the back of the Zone sponsorship of Ben, but I recently found out he never received it.

Fortunately, I know Ben is a decent guy and, having had a word with him about this at the Sponsors do on Tuesday, Ben duly handed over to me today a signed shirt for John, which will shortly be winging its way out to Oz.

Thanks to Ben, I know John will love this!
