“It feels great to win this award tonight, it’s a fantastic achievement for our club. There are so many unsung heroes at Yeovil Town that also deserve this."
“They were trying to get in the league for 108 years and we got it 10 years ago and we’ve had a fantastic decade in the Football League."
“When we got our promotion from the Conference to the Football League you wouldn’t think we would get to the Championship by now, and to do it via Wembley was fantastic."
"There are only 40,000 people in Yeovil and we took 25,000 to the match. I’m accepting this award on behalf of everyone associated with the club.”
