In The Chairman's words

The Heed Army Blog has been lucky enough to be able to get a message from GFC Chairman Graham Wood a head of Saturdays Play-Off Final.

Here is Graham Message:

The blogmaster has asked me if I'd like to send a message to the fans ahead of Saturday's all important play-off final and I'm most grateful for the opportunity.

Firstly, my heartfelt thanks to you all for your magnificent support throughout the season, with special thanks for last Tuesday night, when, in keeping with the team's performance, you were just awesome. As Ian Bogie has already commented, it was as good as having an extra man.

As to Saturday's game, as you would expect, nobody is taking anything for granted. Buxton wouldn't be in the final of the play-off's if they weren't a good side and they'll be eager to show their fans and themselves that they're a lot better than the 0-9 aggregate which resulted from our two recent meetings would suggest.

I have to say that Gateshead are currently playing with the kind of self belief that I've seldom seen and anything other than a Gateshead victory is hard to predict, but we must fully recognise that, as with every game we play, winning doesn't come by right.

Whatever happens on Saturday, one thing is sure. This club is on the up and you are playing a vital role in the process.

I know I don't need to ask you to get behind the team on Saturday, that's an absolute given. Enjoy the day and thank you again.

Onward and upward.

The Heed Army Blog would like to take this time to say a big thank you to Graham Wood, not only for his message today, but for his passion and drive that has seen Gateshead Football Club breathe with life over the past few seasons.
Not only would the Blog like to thank Graham, we would like to say big thank you and well done to the whole team that is GFC:
Brian Waites

Margaret Lord
