"This is My Club Now" - Darrell Clarke Determined to Give His All For the Fans

10:30 am Monday, 23 September 2019  
Walsall manager Darrell Clarke has spoken to the press following Saturday's welcome win over Scunthorpe United and praised the club's supporters for sticking behind the team as they went on to secure three crucial points.
Throughout the clash with the Iron, large sections of the home support were chanting the manager's name and backing the side to find that all-important winning goal, and they were rewarded twenty minutes into the second-half as captain James Clarke scored with an overhead kick.

After plenty of hard work in defence, that goal would eventually prove to be enough to see the Saddlers home to victory, further easing the pressure on the team as they moved up the table, away from the League Two relegation zone.

And Mansfield-born Clarke, who was delighted to see his side secure their second win in under a week, went on to admit that he puts his 'heart and soul' into the club, and thanked Saddlers supporters for sticking with the team even when things were beginning to look bleak.

Speaking to several members of the local media, Darrell admitted that his side probably deserved to secure their first home win of the season a little sooner, but was happy to take the points on Saturday afternoon.

The gaffer, said; "I thought we probably deserved it a few matches ago if I’m honest. But it’s nice to get it on and the support, big, big plaudits to the support today, they got behind the lads when it wasn’t still a great game.

"They can see the effort and endeavour, through the team they’re competing, working hard, we just need to get better in all areas.

"Fans, when they see players, they want to see that determination, desire and the lads are showing me that in abundance.

"To be honest I think they’ve cut me a lot of slack, they’ve been great with me personally, I think they know my passion, my desire.

"It’s the first thing I think about when I wake up in the morning, it’s the last thing I think about when I go to bed.

"That’s why my wife doesn’t like me very much, my kids don’t like me very much, but I put my heart and soul into the job.

"That’s what you have to do as a football manager, this is my club now, I want to do well for the supporters and we’ll use this as another building block."
