FOREST GREEN ROVERS are in the play-offs. That simple statement means so much. Grown men wept. I know as I was one. Tension, joy and deep pride all combined to make April 25 a wonderful day for those on a hill top near Nailsworth.

Talking to fellow fans recently I have encountered too much negativity. This helps no one, especially now. The players need to know we are all behind them and I am sure the response of the crowd in the victory over Torquay was brilliant.

A HOME win against high-flying Halifax, a draw at eighth placed Eastleigh and a win at lowly Dartford have brought seven points out of a possible nine. The promotion push is back on track. We are two points off a play-off place.

CAPTAIN Klinger is coming back. That is the best news Gloucestershire cricket supporters have had for some time. He has been an important character at Bristol on and off the field and knows work is still to be done.

SIX games played, twelve points won, four goals conceded and just three points from the top of the table. Add to that a team that never knows it is beaten, can come from behind and salvage something from the game.

THE Festival was fine in all respects bar one and that was the most important of all, the cricket. Played five, lost four, and just one victory. These blunt statistics speak for themselves but regrettably they do not tell the whole story.

A STUNNING win at Leicester, a dramatic T20 Blast success at Sussex, a fine batting performance against Glamorgan and a remarkable rearguard action against Surrey – I picked the wrong time to go on holiday!

DIG in for victory! That must be the rallying cry to our players. The next three games (at Woking and Barnet and home to Kidderminster) will determine whether the play-offs can be reached. We shall know in a week’s time!

THERE is one simple message this week. Keep the faith! There will be times when we doubt, times when we rejoice, but until it is all over we must believe. Believe in our manager, our players and above all show that belief – in both numbers and noise.

“I PICKED a team to work hard and win the game”. These words were uttered by Scott Bartlett in response to a question by Bob Hunt, following Scott’s first game as caretaker manager. The question was asked because there were some significant omissions following the previous game. This had been yet another defeat.
