Chairman's programme notes vs. Luton
Ready for all, yielding to none
I am writing these notes directly after a well-fought 1-0 win at Adams Park, Wycombe, on Good Friday.
My pride for the team is currently at great levels after a performance which saw good attacking play and defensive resilience in equal measure.
Carolyn and I were quite literally on the edge of our seats throughout and were bursting with pride when the full-time whistle was sounded.
In truth, I have not yet looked at the league table, but of course I know we are still in the play-off hunt. The excitement will surely be close to fever pitch against Luton and I want to see that carnival-like atmosphere spill from the stands and onto the pitch to aid our boys.
This is crunch time, with priceless points available.
To all of an amber and blue persuasion this afternoon, support our team like never before, make the difference in the stands with your encouraging vocal backing.
Finally, I am delighted to welcome back to the club this afternoon the Wembley heroes of 1987. The squad which defeated Bristol City on penalties in the Freight Rover Trophy Final 30 years ago this May are back with us today as we celebrate that famous day in the capital. The players will be presented on to the hallowed turf at half-time today and I know you will give them the reception they deserve. The winning of the Trophy was one of our club’s finest hours.
The players and management of that famous triumph will be forever etched into our history books. Thank you for coming back to north Nottinghamshire this afternoon. We are delighted to host you once again and our current crop of players are trying to emulate the successes which you brought us three decades ago.
Together we can do this!
Come on you Stags!
