Assistant boss Glynn Snodin spoke to the matchday programme ahead of Tuesday night’s visit of Gillingham, as part of a look at the team behind the team!
And the former Northern Ireland international coach said of all the previous teams he has worked with, both as a player and as a coach, he believes his current employers are at the top of the tree in terms of team cohesion.
“I’ve been involved with some good squads over the years, but this is the best togetherness I’ve seen,” said Snodin.
“That’s in terms of the spirit, how they fight for each other, and how hard they train.
“They know they’ve got to fight for that shirt, and when they get in, they’ve got to make sure they stay in.
“It’s a great place of work, and a lovely place to get up for in the morning. Some people may say ‘yes, but you’re getting up at five or half five in the morning’; that’s true but I’m getting up for a place where I enjoy coming to work.
“It’s not work for me because it’s something you’ve loved as a kid; it’s football, and when you’re winning, it’s even better.”
You can read more from Snods in our interview in the 100-page edition of Tuesday’s programme; this also includes features and interviews with John Dreyer, Tom Little, Russ Wilcox, manager Simon Grayson in an extended interview, Alan Kelly and Paul Huntington.
We also have a dozen pages about our visitors from Kent and we have some fantastic unseen images in our big picture section – all this and so much more packed into the 29th edition of the season.
