  • Reaction: David Sharpe thanks fans after promotion at Fleetwood Town.
  • Chairman's reaction following 4-0 victory at Highbury Stadium.
  • David Sharpe praises fans and support for Joseph's Goal.

Speaking to iFollow Latics following the club's promotion to the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday, chairman David Sharpe praised Latics supporters, not only for their backing on the day and throughout the season, but for the special efforts put in by around 100 supporters who walked to Highbury Stadium in aid of Joseph's Goal.

"The supporters have experienced a lot with us in a short space of time and they were remarkable at Fleetwood," the chairman began.

"I was on the walk with them for Joseph's Goal and you can tell how much the club means to them. What we do on the pitch is their life, they have a terrible Monday if we get beat and a great one if we win, so I'm sure after this weekend there will be some people not making it into work, I might not either.

"I knew about 100 of our supporters would struggle walking at the end of the game.

"They've travelled in their numbers and we've already sold over 3,000 tickets for the final day at Doncaster. From now on it will be a proper party atmosphere and we'll look to go on to win the league for them."
