The Dentist’s Diary – 653rd

Hello and Welcome to the 15th Dentists Diary Christmas Edition! 

It’s that time again when there’s chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Halls decked with Holly, children with faces all aglow and turkeys everywhere….(not just at Caravan Park).

So, once again, it has been a quiet couple of weeks, when it seems to have done nothing but rain incessantly and with little news coming out of the club, even season ticket sales seem to have slowed a bit. Still Mahe’s arrived to great welcoming from everyone and the squad is slowly taking shape again, but I for one can’t wait now to get some action under our belts and to see some games again, because for this fan it seems to have been such a long closed season already!!
