Russ Eagle

THANK YOU

I wanted to take a few minutes to thank a few people whose support , expertise and sheer hard work has made my enforced absence run as smooth as possible.

1st of all my heartfelt thanks to Spow ( Aiden Spowage ) and Doddo ( Jason Dodsworth) their workrate, excellence and drive to make our club the best it can possibly be is without doubt the reason our start to the season has been an excellent one . Their judgement and willingness to go the extra mile for the cause has been unbelievable and I can't thank these two men enough ,we are blessed to have two brilliant operators in our camp such as Jase and Spow, I know I'm a nightmare( and I'm sure I always will be ) and we won't always agree on everything but thats football . It's been difficult for me to watch on from the living room and I've been frustrated and in truth in the early weeks of my operation it was absolutely intolerable, but these two men have carried on regardless and done and amazing job for me and this football club .

Our backroom staff have supported Spow & Jase so well , Adam ( Ledger) has come in as GK coach and has been such a positive influence around the camp and oozes professionalism, add our head Physio ( Kev) and Ben into the mix who doing their very best to keep everyone fit and safe ... I couldn't have asked for more from anyone .

Our senior players have stepped up and helped when resources were stretched , and the whole squad have been absolutely outstanding in terms of application , endeavour and quality of performance .

Praise and thanks also goes out to our Reserves, U21's & 2 x 18's and the Education programme for all the hard work in getting competitive squads together and nurturing the talent of the likes of Ethan & Nana who have made brilliant starts to their 1st team lives.

We have had an unbelievable amount of home games since July , this has put a tremendous amount of pressure on ALL of our brilliant trustees, volunteers , staff and helpers... my personal thanks go to everyone for their amazing selfless work in getting our brilliant programme( Ian) out, our fantastic photos( Ken) and match reports published, our social media updates out there , our turnstile clicking ( Tracy & Sheila) , our kits washed , our food and drink prepared and served ( Andy , Chris , Marie , Gemma & staff), our raffle tickets sold (Andy), our ground set up ( Daz, Pete, Clarkey, Gerry and more )our bins emptied , our pitches prepared ( Paul ), our stands cleaned and painted , our hospitality served ( Dale , Louise & Fiona) and much much more ... we as a squad and me as gaffer can't thank you enough .

The whole non league circuit know how difficult this summer in particular has been for club & matchday secretarys especially , and to Graham Slesser and Ian Whitehouse thank you for all your diligent hard work to make the games possible in spite of system that has created you so many problems for you , thank you !

Finally thanks to everyone who has come along and watched and supported us...let's keep the momentum going and see if we can keep this brilliant buzz around the place, we are so proud to represent this club and hopefully inspire our brilliant boys and girls teams to even greater heights , to our sponsors who have really stepped up and helped us thank you ...and to the Chair (John) & Vice Chair ( Steve) ... your sheer graft and support for me personally and the whole squad and 1st team has been amazing ...we'll be working so hard to repay the faith and support you've given us .

Thanks everyone..Up The Ambers

Russ
