a sad day today, for Bracknell Manics FC. Despite winning in the
3rd round of the Berks & Bucks Cup, the squad quickly learnt
of some big news...
Elliott Fairs, BMFC's
very own holding midfielder has decided enough's enough and its
time for him to hang up his boots for this season as he decides
to concentrate on his travels and other hobbies in life he misses.
It's a massive loss
for the club, not only from a playing point of view, but from a
personal level also.
Elliott Fairs is one
of the few remaining originals left to this day, playing for 5 seasons
in the Sunday league and before this, Manics 6aside from 1996, over
ten years ago.
Over the years, 'Woods'
has picked up a collection of BMFC trophies, a string of man of
the match performances, and at the pinnacle of his career lead his
team as captain of the side in Division One as champions in his
2004-2005 season - not to mention over 100 competitive games played
for the club.
has always been of the highest, and come match day he will always
be thought of as the player with overwhelming perseverance and a
fine sportsman's personality, matched with his resilience never
to give up out on pitch.
For this reason Elliott
will be dearly missed at BMFC, everyone associated with the club
wishes Elliott the best for the future.
Always a happy face at the pub after the game...
Not one to shy away from a yard of ale...
All his heart and passion into his game...
Man of the Match performances...
Winning Division One, captain of his side.
