Retiring Young

It’s a farewell message to Bryan Young who has decided to hang up his boots at the age of 32. Bryan joined the club in the summer of 2017 from Auchinleck Talbot where he had spent 12 seasons rampaging down the Beechwood wing. Fittingly, his last game was at that very ground. All the best Butch!
