They came together as a team and deserve all the congratulations that come their way.“The Academy staff deserve equal thanks too after preparing several players for their first team debuts as well as reaching the semi finals of their playoffs.“I’d like to thank the Board of Directors and Eamonn McManus for their unwavering backing in not only supporting our fantastic youth development system but also for funding transfers in a difficult market that has seen us secure British based and overseas talent.“The staff behind the scenes should also be praised. They work long hours and do a lot of things that go un-noticed but are as equally as vital as what goes on on the pitch.“Finally, I’d like to personally thank the fans who have supported us through thick and thin this year.“At times it has been difficult but your support has been superb. This was none more so evident than on Friday when, under pressure and a man down, you roared the team to an almost famous win.”last_img
