Following Felixstowe & Walton’s Bostik North encounter away at Coggeshall on Saturday 20thApril, Joe Francis announced his retirement from non-league football. It was a decision he had considered taking a year earlier but had decided to carry on for one more year. There will be many people involved in football in East Anglia who will be aware of the great contribution Joe has made to the game. He will be missed both as a footballer and for his character and personality.
