Just a few words of fond farewell from the comeonyousaints.com Editorial team...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AND SO, IT'S GOODNIGHT FROM US...

 

On behalf of the Directors of comeonyousaints.com, just a few words if we may to say a sincere “thank you” to everyone who supported the Northampton Saints Message Board whilst under the COYSDC banner over the years. From COYSDC's humble beginnings by Chris Gleadell on GeoCities, through our move to Rivals, the arrival of Rich as Mr G's partner in crime and other Editors down the years, your continued patronage has been much valued and appreciated!

It has been (mostly) an absolute pleasure to look after the message board on behalf of its contributors – hopefully you will have found us all even-handed and to have steered the good ship with a light hand on the tiller.

We now hand over to the new stewards of the Northampton Saints SportNetwork site. We wish StTed and his team every success in the future – if you have half as much fun as we have had down the years then you’ll do just fine!

 

Finally, all we would wish to say is, play nicely boys and girls and give the new Editorial Team the respect they deserve.

 

So we take our leave…

 

Jonathan Stockham (Stockers)

Phil Hollis (Phil.)

Wilma Thomson (Flinstone Saint)

Tim Empson (St Tim)

Once again, thanks for all your efforts over the years this has been a massive part of my Northampton Rugby experience and I've followed the site ever since it started with the cheesy 'oh when the Saints ' midi file playing in the background. Stories of Kippers being cooked, mysterious goings on with a monkey in Coventry, Mysterious Moroccan Moles, trying to fathom out if "Chris' was a bloke or a girl, the rise of 'Morning All', the birth of the Frooners, the Weekly Pomes, Planet Lom, Smurfs photos,.... and then of course , the Rugby banter. NIce job Eds...

Thanks all, you have seen a massive change in social media and internet usage, this site is no longer what you signed up for, so totally respect your decision

Enjoy retirement (if only)

Thank you so much for all of your hard work lady and gents. Hope that you will be sticking around on the new site, contributing frequently but with your feet up from hereonin.

Thanks all for those kind words.

Saint BB, I read your post rather too quickly and wondered what you knew about the former Eds' habits when I thought I saw

"but with your feet up from heroin"!

I may have once had one too many Nurofen but nothing stronger. Honest!

Thanks to Stockers, Phil,(the Night Manager) St Tim, Wilma, and Chris (ali babba) G for his Pie on earing work in the first few years.
COYS has given me Knowledge of our great game, Amusement, and above all some fantastic friends blessyou all. Not to mention several (ahem!) 'memorable' tours.

Thanks again people for your hard work. The site has meant a lot to many people over the years and often the work behind the scenes (unpaid and in your own time) is very often taken for granted.

Its been a blast thanks all those who have been custodians and editors during its various guises.
Saints with Heart will be the legacy plus the many present and dear departed friends made though this site.

You guys have played an important role in my Saints supporting. Thank you for all you've done to keep COYS a respectable and honest site. You will be sorely missed.
