Cougars Club Captain Buster Feather after a fantastic Testimonial celebrating 10 years in the Red White and Green has put pen to paper to thank all those who supported his benefit year
It’s been a great 10 years at Cougar Park and I’m so lucky to have played for such a great club for such a long time. Having now finished my testimonial year I really can’t thank everyone enough for a fantastic twelve months. I’m writing this letter of thanks as it’s really hard for me to catch up with everybody to say it to them.
I’ve have had an amazing testimonial and it’s a shame it’s all over but it won’t be long before we are at it again with Brendon Rawlins and Gavin Duffy not too far away.
I’d firstly like to say a special thank you to my testimonial committee who worked so hard not just putting on the events but doing all the little things in their own time. I’m really lucky to have special friends who did all that hard work for me, you are amazing people and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. If it had not of been for their hard work no event could have taken place as I was rubbish at doing anything so thank you.
I’d like to thank my family; I really do have the best family in the world and they worked tirelessly for twelve months so thank you for your hard work and support.
I’d also like to thank my team mates for supporting me in my testimonial game. On a cold December afternoon pulling your boots on for free is a big ask (especially if your name is Rawlo!!) I was really grateful and having 30+ Players including some old Cougars turn out made it a great day – thank you boys.
Finally I’d like to thank the fans; you guys have made not just my testimonial but my whole 10 years at Keighley more than worth it. On a Sunday your support is first class I always enjoy running onto the pitch at the start of a game hearing the Cougar chant – I never get tired of hearing it and I love it, you are great fans, thanks for the encouragement every weekend. In the twelve months of my testimonial every event was a success thanks to your support. I really am grateful for every penny you help raise for me I hope you enjoyed the events as much as I. Thanks again and I promise you that I will give 110% every week until I’m no longer needed.
