As well as the manager, we always interview a player after the final whistle. This time round it was Simon Spender who faced the camera. He doesn’t score many goals for The New Saints but his 69th minute winner against Connah’s Quay Nomads will rank up there as one of the most important.
Simon was also the cover boy on the match day programme and I always get mine signed personally by the player. This time round, for the first time ever, I had it done prior to kick-off. I can only imagine what he would have written after the game.
As Greg Draper said to me as I was making my way to interview him, “Don’t make his head any bigger than it already is.” Don’t you just love the player banter!
