OLI's MATCH v Accrington

Thu Mar 29, 2007 12:39 pm

Hi Guys,

As most of you will know, this Saturdays match against Accrington Stanley is officially in memory of Oliver Hewitt, aka Jolysaddler, who died just over a year ago.

Oli's family, included his mom, dad and step dad are official guests of the club at the game. There will be an announcement at half time, as well as a page dedicated to Oliver in the official matchday programme.

As suggested by DaveDean, it would be nice if everyone who knew Oli could meet up by his bricks on the memorial wall prior to the game to respectfully remember Oli. I'd suggest a time of 2:30pm... How does that sound to everyone, and who can make it?

Thanks, Phil

Live in Great Wyrley? Get on the train and get yourself into the Saddlers Club. Most of us get there by 1:30 at the latest.

Here's a sentence I bet Oliver thought would never pass my lips,

'See you all at the match on Saturday'

If you see me blubbing please don't be embarrased but you will understand what a big day it is
going to be for us. We will be doing what Oliver would willingly have payed, well perhaps not payed,
to do, but he would have loved it.

And to see all his mates together is a wonderful thing, but also one of the worst 'cause he aint with you.
On Saturday I will be going where I never wanted to go, it is Oliver's sacred place, the place he loved,
the place he never had to worry he'd see his Dad. Well sorry Oliver, you're Mom say's I've gotta come.

The last time I went to a match with Oliver he was mascot, this time................
