From Scott Golbourne in May 2021

“I've decided to hang up my boots and, draw for the business suit! (Ok maybe a hard hat & steel toes). Been building a business for the past 6 years and it's now time for me to transition.

Football has been an incredible journey both for me and my family. I’ve had some incredible experiences, worked with some amazing people, learned some valuable lessons and made some friends for life. Thank you to everyone that has supported or played a part in my journey. It's been a pleasure as well as a privilege.
