Derek, Sharon and Alba Detecting
« on: October 02, 2019, 09:41:02 AM »
Hey guys,
There was a thread the other week regarding Derek and Sharon and it was mentioned that they still got money from club digs.

When requested to name the digs they were involved in I jumped the gun without checking facts and named ALBA DETECTING as their alter group.

I had been misinformed and without checking I put it up on the public forum.

I have spoke with Tommy Baxter regarding this and apologised for finger pointing his club.

They have no affiliation with this group and I would publicly like to apologise for any slander, bad feelings sent his way regarding this matter and to anyone on here that has been misguided by my error.

I don't want to cause agro and will refrain from making comments without checking the facts in future.

Thanks again and sorry
Marty
