Julian Batty - Rest in Peace
Our sympathies go out to to Jean, John, Helen and all Julian's family on the very sad news that Julian passed away today.
We pay tribute to a great supporter of SWFC and Wednesdayite. Julian loved SWFC and also loved cycling so much so he took part in both our Coast to Coast charity bike ride and also the Brentford to Bluebell Wood ride at the end of April 2012. We reproduce below Julian's account of the time on the road, with a few pictures of Julian included.
Rest in Peace Julian , you will be sadly missed

The Takeover - Thank you Milan , Welcome Hafiz!
I have just got back from France where I had very limited internet so my apologise for the delay in issuing this statement..... No I wasn't visiting RC Lens.......... or trying to find Mr Hulley!
I knew something was kicking off on Tuesday when I got 20 missed calls from unknown numbers (the majority turned out to be press, following google searches of the numbers), I choose not to return these as I had no information, so for those of you who think we chase the press please think again.

With the signing of Benik Afobe on loan from Arsenal for the rest of the season could we see Benik being remembered as fondly as some of the strikers who have come before him. The lad is still very young and lets give him some time to find his scoring boots.
