JAMES WHITING PRAISES SPIRIT THAT HELPED CLUB SECURE PROMOTION

Cheif Executive praises players, staff and supporters

13 May 2023

Chief Executive James Whiting has praised the spirit within the club that overcame a difficult season to help secure promotion to Sky Bet League One.

The club battled through some off the field issues as well as a crippling injury list to finish third in Sky Bet League Two and Whiting said the togetherness between players, staff and supporters played a big part in that.

“It’s been a brutal season but we have got a club full of really good people and everyone is on the same page," he said.

"It’s been an incredible season not just with the injuries but some of the red cards we’ve had as well and I think what we’ve done well is use things like that as motivation.

“It has felt like everything is against us and the mentality we’ve had all season has been just to find a way to win.

“The players and coaching staff have been incredible and for players to play who haven’t even really been fit just shows the commitment they have.

“Sutton away will live with me for a long time and that for me is one of my favourite games in my time here. We had no right to win that game but the players put their bodies on the line and fought for the club.

“I think the fans appreciated that and that night at Sutton they dragged us over the line."
