Gasps followed by sobs of despair filled the air in the office today ..... no the coffee machine wasn't on the blink, the printers hadn't ran out of paper and the hot lass in the corner hadn't handed her notice in !
It was worse, much worse ...... Scotty Donaldson has left the Cestrians !
OK, it's happened before but that wasn't the Scotty we see these days.
Top performer week in week out, weighed down a little this season with the Captaincy but you wouldn't have given the armband to anyone else. Always a very good tackler, he's now an excellent reader of the game and his passing is also vastly improved.
Hodko led the tributes "...... I realised that by giving Donnas my Player of the Season nomnation at the end of last season, that it was probably the last we'd see of him. Happy that he returned this season and looked to be forming a very good partnership with the (now missing) Michael Robson. Taking on the Captaincy he helped the new goalie and right back to settle in. Looking at my highly viewed & respected ahem
, match analysis for this season, you'll see that the "unofficial" MOTM awards have gone to Donnas numerous times - shows how valuable he is to CLS. Top bloke & a massive miss !"
All the best Donnas !
