On his departure Geoff said " After long career where I have had the privilege to serve a number of professional clubs I feel now is the right time to take a break and spend some quality time with my family.
My two years at Colne F C have been two of the happiest of my career where I have made many friends in what has been a difficult period for the club. The board & Committee have always tried to back me up whenever possible with player signings.
The present management team that Phil has put together will drive this club forward, I will look for Colne results & hopefully see you all soon as a fan of the club.
On behalf of Linda & myself I would like to thank you for the special 2 years that have given us many great memories. Up the reds."
