Management thoughts on our day in the sun

Posted on Monday, July 25th, 2011

Mike says –

“Sam and I were very proud of our players at half-time and felt very sorry for them on hearing the final whistle. Let’s face it Manchester United are and were different class but Alex’s late first half equaliser gave everyone in the home dressing room false hope. Warren Joyce made one or two changes at the interval and that along with their obvious outstanding ability, full-time training and the heat proved far too much for our boys in the second half. One things for sure we won’t have a harder afternoon than that this season whoever we get in the Scottish Cup. The bottom line is we did score, won half a dozen corners and carved out quite a few chances. We can now concentrate on the season ahead and trying to retain our league title and the cups which sit in the board room.

I’d also like to thank everyone connected with Manchester United who were different class on the day. They were happy to sign autographs, have pictures taken and talk to our players and supporters. As well as being exceptionally talented they were polite, down to earth, accommodating and to a man, a credit to their great club.

Finally our club once again showed they can attract, organise and  steward a crowd of over 3,000 without one single problem in a great family atmosphere. Is there anyone up there listening?”
