Dereks message

A message from Derek Goulding, following the game at Padiham on saturday.

‘I would like to thank all our supporters who travelled to Padiham and sang their hearts out for the team, we are only sorry we couldn’t get the result we really desired, but you can be assured we are still in there with a realistic chance and will be giving it everything we’ve got until the last minute, of the last game of the season!

I also hope that none of our supporters were hurt in the skirmish at the end of the game when it was confirmed to me by a watching Padiham official that a section of our supporters were set upon by a hooligan element at the game. I thank you for your composure shown at the incident, and I apologise if I offended anybody at that time, but my only concern was to diffuse the situation at the time for the overall safety of our supporters, especially the kids and families, who I know attend our games.

See you all on Tuesday

Degs, YNWA’
