Writing this today, must be one of the toughest things I have had to do during my time on the Trust Board.
How can you put into words what Mishi meant to everyone connected to this football club, it is an impossible task.
It is very difficult not to be sad at a time like this. Personally, I am so proud to have shared, be it a small number of years, not only a spot on the terraces with Mishi but have had the pleasure of being in his company for the many special occasions Dulwich Hamlet has seen in recent years.
There are too many occasions to mention, the most recent being that not only did he finally get to see us on the telly, he appeared on it!! We may have now been on TV, but Mishi I am going to ignore your ‘friendly advice’ that I need to edit my “Dulwich Hamlet Will NOT be televised” stencil on the Greendale side of the main stand.
In his many roles at the club over the years, including serving on the Trust Board, his tireless work has been instrumental and inspired many others, like myself, to volunteer and help create the amazing community football club we are so proud of today.
Next time you step into Champion Hill look around you; there is no fitting legacy for a great man.
Finally, myself and the rest of the Supporters’ Trust Board’s thoughts are with his family and friends at this very sad time.
Rest in Peace our good friend.
