George Dobson "Devastated" as Relegation is Confirmed

Walsall captain George Dobson has spoken to club journalists following Saturday's draw with Shrewsbury Town, which confirmed the club's relegation to League Two, and admitted that he was left devastated as the season ended on such a sour note.
The 21-year-old former Arsenal and West Ham United prospect was quick to praise the travelling fans for their unwavering support - over 1,600 made the trip to the Shrews' Montgomery Waters Meadow - before issuing a rallying cry as he hopes to guide the team back to League One at the earliest opportunity.

Dobson, who returned to the club in January 2018 following a brief spell with Sparta Rotterdam, made forty-four appearances over the course of the season and admitted that he and his teammates just were not good enough over the length of the campaign.

Speaking via the club's official website, George said; "Obviously, all of the boys are devastated. I can only start by thanking the fans for their support; they were unbelievable.

"In the second half, when we were attacking them, they were really pushing us on and they rallied us. We gave it a go but even if we did get the goal, it wouldn’t have mattered.

"I can only thank the fans for their support throughout the season. I know they will be hurting and we are too. At times this season, it just hasn’t been good enough and we have got to make sure we don’t have this feeling again.

"In the last two games, we have played well. We have kept two clean sheets, we played well last week and this week in the second half.

"But we didn’t get relegated at Shrewsbury, it was the patch from the new year through until March time when we didn’t collect enough points from the teams around us.

"In January and February, we played all of the teams around us and we didn’t win and that is what has killed us. We have got to bounce back."
