Myself and my management team, the committee and all the players would like to thank our very loyal supporters who travelled down to Milton Keynes yesterday by train, car and bus, to support us in our quest to move into the quarter finals of the FA Vase.

I personally cannot thank you enough and as a club we really appreciated it. Just so sorry we could not return with the result we all wanted, but we will carry on today and try and finish the season on a high! So many thanks for your loyal support long may it continue!
