Looks like we have a sponsor so I will probably be ordering 150 copies of the book if we get promoted!! Anyone got an exact translation of Optiam Tua Age.?

I seem to remember it's something along the lines of "Be Your Best"

\Quite right, it is either Be your Best or Do your Best or something along those lines. Many thanks.

Optima Tua Age is actually an idea of Pritch who thought of it as club motto few years ago . " Be your best" had to be translated in Latin .Simon and 2-3 of us looked for an exact translation and came up with 'Optima Tua Age' .Not optiam WHS but Optima . Hope it helps

We Love you.x

Just to confirm, the book is finished but requires a happy ending! I have only this season to write and it has been decided to order 150 copies so everyone who wants one should get one, priority will be given to the 50 or so people who have ordered. I will personally be ordering 5 hard back copies that will cost me around £20 each, one will go to Northwich Library, one to me and two to my sons leaving one I may raffle or auction.
Please order if you want to ensure your copy. Finally, though I will thank them in the book, I must thank Paul Lavell and George Haspell without whom this book would not have been possible. I would also like ti thank Vin Conneely and the many others who provided me with so much information. I hope I have done them and our wonderful club justice.

If anyone has any stories they think might be right for the book, or information I might not have feel free to contact me. I want the book to be as comprehensive as possible. I have included hundreds of names but if there is anyone you feel MUST be in it let me know and I will tell you if they are.
