INSIDE VIEW - Craig Jones' Bromsgrove Sporting column

Craig Gibbons 18th Oct, 2018

Bromsgrove Sporting skipper Craig Jones writes for The Standard in his weekly column, reflecting on the victory over Barton Rovers and Thomas Jones’ memorial match on Tuesday night.

IT WAS a pleasing day all round on Saturday.

Three points away from home with a performance full of attacking football, topped off by our fourth league clean sheet in a row.

The atmosphere on the coach home was brilliant, with music playing, drinks flowing and a certain Max Banner indulging us with a rendition of Sweet Caroline which on the whole was good but certainly had some shaky moments.

I’d like to personally thank the fans who travelled down to cheer us on. Your commitment is unparalleled and means a lot to the boys.

We hope to repay you with more successful away days.

On Tuesday night we paid our tributes and respects to one of our own, Thomas Jones.

It was great to see so many people turn out and I hope Tom was looking down smiling.

When the Jones family presented Nathan Binner with the trophy it really hit home and put things into perspective.

I couldn’t help thinking how strong they were and some of the lads came in the dressing room quite emotional afterwards.

Words can’t describe what you must be going through but hopefully we did you and Jonah proud.

This week we have another tough away day against a team in the top-six.

Bedford will be a difficult challenge, but one we are looking forward to.

We want the three points and another triumphant journey home.
