Paul Sturrock Promotion Reaction

Paul Sturrock Promotion Reaction

Swindon Town manager Paul Sturrock gave his reaction after Swindon Town won promotion back to League One.

'I am delighted. I am pleased for everybody at this football club. The fans have been through the mill and its been a rollercoaster, but thankfully we have won promotion and we are making progress. I hope the club and the Town are now arm in arm and we can continue onwards and upwards.

'The whole ground was jumping at the final whistle and that was fantastic. I think I will sleep well tonight after the sleepless nights I have had!

'My abiding memory will be Jerel Ifil scoring his first league goal of his career. Peacock moved into midfield this season and he has gone from strength to strength.

'I would like to thank my coaching staff - Kevin Summerfield and John Blackley because they have done fantastic work behind the scenes.

'People have to appreciate that next season will be a case of putting the foundations down.

'Big Baz had two years out injured and he has given us tremendous value. It was his decision to play and he had a great effect on the team.

'I am going away on a cruise very soon and I am going to enjoy it. There are some bad jobs I have to do now because some people will be moving on. There are decisions to be made but I'd like the players to savour the moment because not many people win things in their careers.'
