Stockley: players should be hurting

Fans may prefer to blame Johnnie Jackson for recent poor performances, but in a firm message to his fellow players Jayden Stockley has made it clear that the players have to take responsibility for inconsistency:

Speaking like an old fashioned club captain, Stockley said: 'We’ve set ourselves targets and fallen short. If that is not hurting each and every player then there is something seriously wrong – because the mindset has to be to get this club back where it has come from.  If you don’t want to be a part of that journey then there is no use to you being here,'

It's refreshing to see a player take responsibility for what happens on the pitch.

In another development, the club appears to have issued an excessive and random number of complementary tickets for today's game.   The 'Fill The Valley' objective is laudable, but one has to be careful not to upset existing season ticket holders.
