Re Ken Watkins’ piece in the Free Press – I would like to add my kind thoughts on Chris Symes.
I am a Derby County fan and in August 2012 they came to Cornard United’s ground to train ahead of their friendly match at Colchester.
I rang Chris and he kindly invited me to meet the Derby team.
My wife went with me and took some photos, and the team signed their autographs in my Derby County history book.
Nigel Clough, the manager, had his photo taken with me. I will cherish all these things till I am no longer here.
Chris is a perfect gentleman and it is hard to find anyone like him.
