Hear from the Club Captain

It’s been an incredible year on the pitch for us, and I hope you’ve enjoyed the ride. We hope we’ve given you moments that you’ll cherish for the rest of your life.

Over the last 12 months, we’ve transformed in every department, on and off the pitch. We feel like a proper Premier League club now.

Getting promoted and winning the title has brought a lot of attention and media coverage onto us but we’re handling it extremely well.

The training ground has changed so much. The facilities we have now, I think it outlines how much we’ve grown as a football club.

On the pitch, we’ve grown as well. We’ve been able to put in some great performances against some of the biggest clubs in the country.

That’s meant the level in training has increased as well. The intensity has gone up. When you’re playing against this level of opponents, you have to be as fit or fitter than them to compete.

The support is massive for us. I’ve played in stadiums before that clubs have struggled to fill. We are very lucky to play in front of such huge crowds at every home game.

Knowing we have that backing every week at home, it gives us such a big boost. The fans here are brilliant and they’ve always been brilliant with me personally.

We’re all in this together. We need the fans to stick with us, we know we’re not where we want to be at the minute.

Hopefully, in the long run we can get to where we want to be. The fans are a massive part of that. At the end of the day, we want to do it for the fans and we want to make them happy.
