GILBEY ON THE RESULT
They were good opposition, exactly what we needed, we’ve worked on the shape in the last couple of days and things are starting to move in the right direction again
GILBEY ON THE GOAL
It’s only pre-season but it’s always good to score, especially against a team like that. I want to score goals this season and that’s a good start for me. It’s massive for me, I need to hit the ground running in pre-season and get back to playing and I’m really pleased
GILBEY ON COOK
He’s a bubbly character, he gets everyone going, it’s infectious and the lads are really buying into it. I really think it’s going to be a good season.
GILBEY ON FITNESS
I feel OK, the gaffer wanted us to get game time and he asked at half-time who wanted to come off and who wanted to stay on and I just thought I could do with a few more minutes in my legs. I feel good and looking forward to coming in and training again tomorrow.
GILBEY ON LIVERPOOL
They make it look so easy, and it shows how well we’ve done tonight. I thought the young lads who came on did really well as well, that was great to see and that’s down to the gaffer and the staff, they treat everyone the same, even the young pros.
GILBEY ON MASSEY
He’s fitted in really well. I haven’t had to help him at all, it’s like he’s been here for ever already. Good times ahead.
