This is my recollection of the position. Hard to believe that was nearly 9 years ago.Not sure if this has been discussed already but isn’t the number 9 shirt going to be used again from next season?
I’m sure we retired it for 9 seasons when Stanno passed in 2010?
Not an actual date, but it did say for nine seasons. If that’s up now then put it back in circulation.The official announcement of the 9 season retirement of the number 9 shirt did not specify an actual date when the retirement would cease to apply.
I tend to agree that August this year is a bit too soon to start using it again.
TE also makes a good point over the choice of the individual to first have the shirt.
It’s just a squad number..Sad as Adams premature death was,it’s time to move on.When it is eventually handed out, if not to his son, then it needs to be somebody that is ECFC through-and-through. Would feel very wrong for a new signing (that may have no understanding of the significance of Stanno to the club and the fans) to be the one to take the mantle.
