12 months ago, the club had just dodged a bullet threatening its very existence at Torquay. Things were looking fairly bleak. And then along came a young guy at a bigger club WANTING to play for WWFC instead of staying at that bigger club. It was a signing to make you sit up and think maybe things were about to change for the better. And the mood of optimism just carried on throughout the season.
After last season of course, the mood in this close season is much more upbeat anyway. But reality is it will be hard for a small club with a small budget to get anywhere near last years achievements. Signings over the summer of Thompson, Sellers, Stewart and Banton feel worthy and one or two may blossom into something exceptional but somehow unexceptional. And then along comes the wow moment. A young lad with a new contract at a championship club, who arguably had a rough deal due to the excellenece of Pierre and Mawson last season, nonetheless WANTS to play for fourth division WWFC. It really does suggest that Ainsworth and Dobson and Co are getting something seriously right behind the scenes, and that must augur well for the new season.
happy days ahead perhaps.
