"Thanks to everyone who has supported me and the lads over the last 5 days. You messages really kept us all going. A speical thanks to Lee C, Marie, Enid, Laura and a specail thanks to Joe Fitzpatrick for calling me at one of my lowest points and helping me through it."

Congratulations to everyone!
