Walsham-le-Willows defender Matt Morton (@MattMorton16): “@BlueBuzzards I hope the new manager is more positive and less defeatist than most the fans seem to be otherwise you may be right.
“Yes you’ve lost a top player and leader but you have a new manager to be appointed, new players to potentially bring in, and a long summer to rebuild.
“Maybe the ‘fans’ should hold onto their towels for a little longer before throwing them in #negativitybreedsnegativity”
Jason Wakeling (@BlueBuzzards): “@MattMorton16 29 years a supporter through thick and thin but never witnessed a total dismantling. #worried
