Thanks and goodbye to Alan Mahon

Last updated : 28 April 2003 By Michael Morris
Alan Mahon has returned to Blackburn after his loan spell at Ninian Park. Mahon scored twice for City, his first earned three points against Blackpool, a result that has helped City into the play offs.

Mahon still has a couple of years to run on his Blackburn contract at a price that City can't afford. Good luck and thanks for you contribution.

Lennie said of his departure

"There's no way we could matcdh that in the second division, and we may not be able to in the first, if we get there.

"We don't know at the moment where we are in regads to next season, so he's going back.

"Alan has done very well for us and sparked things off nicely in the opening weeks he was here.

"But he has found it difficult rcently in that he didn't know whether he was staying or leaving. We wish him all the best."

Personally for me Mahon's best moment came as he scored at Wycombe, the way he dived into the crowd was superb. He did create several goals early in his spell here as well. Cheers Alan, all the best.
