“There was a lot of emotion and it was a different experience watching the game, and then to be with everyone and all the staff at the final whistle. It was a moment we will never forget. I’m just lost for words at the minute it hasn’t really sunk in, you never really think of this end moment, you are just concentrating on each game. When this moment comes, I cannot really describe it.”

So far, it has been very special and I hope we can stay hungry and keep wanting more.”
