It should alss be noted that Lancaster players did personally thank the club for our hospitality and the pleasant atmosphere in which the match was played. An extra thank you should also be mentioned to Sharman Fanning and John Gooch who not only stepped in to play but also had to cancel other engagements to help out the club.
