Chief Executive Jamie Thomas said “We are really excited about the launch of plans for the 2014 season under the banner of ‘Fear Nothing!’.”
“With this campaign we’re not saying we expect to find it easy on the pitch, far from it, but that we have worked hard to get where we are and we should enter next season without trepidation but with a real excitement of what could be achieved both on and off the pitch.”
“I think spelling out where we want to get to with 10 clear goals worked really well for us last year and kept us driven and focused. It was good to know where we had succeeded and also where we fell short. Obviously there was very visible success on the pitch but there was a lot achieved off the field as well.”
“I also think something like ‘Fear Nothing’ is a concept we can all really get behind. We’ll work hard as a club, the players will give their all and we know we’ll continue to receive the kind of support that every other club looks on in envy.”
“2014 is going to be another massive year for the club and we’re all really excited.”
