MATCHDAY QUOTES

“Where there’s life there’s hope.

“We have by no means given up.

“Another two points tomorrow at home to Oxford could put a completely different complexion on things.

“I am proud the way we fought in such a crucial game as this.”

Herbert Douglas Ellis.



“I’m pleased we won but I’m more pleased at the way in which we won.

“If we had won by a scrambled goal we might have gone away kidding ourselves that everything would be alright.

“But this victory was convincing, good for our morale, and it will renew the faith, confidence and pride of both the team and our supporters.”

Vic Crowe.
