WE are obviously all over the moon.

The first thing to say is that win is dedicated to Nanna. This is what all of us wanted - the management, all the players and staff members at Lowestoft Town FC have dedicated this to Nanna.

The boys were fantastic to come back in the way they did was superb. We got off to the worst possible start and it would've been easy for us to have crumbled.

But after making it hard for ourselves by being 2-0 down inside nine minutes we turned it around, stuck together, pulled the game round and got back into it.

Hungerford were a good side and looked dangerous every time they attacked, but we were still in it at 2-1 down at half time. We changed the system at half time and they then had a player sent off before they made it 3-1.

At this point is could've been easy for us to drop our heads, but they then lost their discipline. It all started from the bench and led to players losing control and discipline on the pitch.

If you can't control your discipline then you have problems. But, at the same time, we were still 3-1 down and at that pint we needed to score three goals to win the game, which was not an easy task when they put men behind the ball.

We kept on pressing and pushing and yes they had opportunities on the break as well, but we stuck at our jobs and did what we are capable of.

The apprehension, excitement and adrenalin was amazing. Russell completed his hat trick for the 4-3 win and it could've been more in extra time.

It was an emotional day and the fans were absolutely fantastic. I can't praise them enough. To hear them after the game singing 'Nanna Barbara she's a Blue' was one of the most emotional experiences of my life.

We'll continue to take it one game at a time though and we have to learn from Saturday that we must start games better than we did. The next focus of our attention is on King's Lynn Reserves away and this is a huge game. We know it will be a really tough game and we're under no illusions. We gave the boys a night off on Tuesday from training but a few of the lads had a run out in the reserves, which was very beneficial.

So tomorrow we'll be picking from a very strong squad and we're looking forward to it. Neil Plaskett is unavailable due to work commitments and Craig Lewis is the only injury concern, as he's likely to be out for another couple of weeks.

Finally, I'd like to conclude this week by saying God Bless Nanna.
