Hi all,

Apologies for the intrusion, I was at Wembley as a photographer together, and have put together this match report/match photos combo. Hopefully some of you find it interesting.

Congratulations on a fantastic season and well deserved win today - best of luck in the Football League.

Match Report

Regards,

Nice one.Thanks for the details.

For most of us it was a blur of emotion. Despair after Rides got sent off... Joy when Cookie nodded home,, and then unremitting tension to see if we could hold on with 10 and then the slough of despondency when they scored in the 10th minute of injury time at the end of the first half.

Then all I remember is Nors leaping like a salmon and the ball nestling in the corner of the net... I don't normally hug 16 stone bearded blokes who I don't know but this one was a Rovers fan and he was there in front of me and we couldn't help it with the shared emotion.

What a day, what a day, what a day... thankfully I didn't get his mobile number so we can't resume the relationship but right there, right then, we had a moment!! winking smiley

Highten emotions can make us do strange things in any given moment, and what a day that was yesterday, talk about emotional rollercoaster from start to finish, but as long as you didnt wake up with a sore @#$%& this morning your fine Yiggsy (Sm151)

Yiggsy I think I may be the 'bearded bloke' haha.
I was with my 2 kids, block 134 row 10 behind the goal.
Funny if it was.

LOL... We were on the back row of the lower tier behind the goal just to the right (133 or 134 as we never found our proper seats).

Might have been you but other 16 stone bearded blokes were available!!! ;D

Superb photos lad. A lot of the emotion captured. Great job but it seems that you were at the wrong end for the second half! Thanks

Don't worry Yiggsy, I'd suggest that anyone who didn't hug a stranger when Nors scored, or at the final whistle, should be apologetic, it was going on everywhere! My only concern now is that. we won't experience such a high again; here's hoping I'm wrong on that one!
Back on subject, enjoyed the report and reliving the experience. I'm absolutely shattered, but I'm sure the adrenaline rush I still have will get me up and through work tomorrow.
