Raggy has played at every level for the club from the Junior Ranks through to the 1st team and has been fantastic for the club on and off the pitch , he was always happy to help when required with the Reserves or Under 21’s , and has been a brilliant role model for the talented lads in the Junior ranks.

Raggy leaves us with the club’s best wishes for a successful move away safe in the knowledge that the door is always open here at the Ambers .

We also thank Alex’s family for their fantastic support over the years and we also hope that we will be still seeing them all around the club.

Good luck Raggy and thank you for all your efforts here at the club.”
