23 May 2020 : Statement from Michael Ellison
Michael Ellison has released the following statement, originally via Twitter, and has given permission for it to be posted here...
As you all know I'm not one for social media but felt I had to make a statement after recent events.
Firstly I'd like to thank the club for giving me the opportunity to cut my teeth in management, four years ago the club took a massive risk in appointing me and showed faith in me and I'd like to think that over the past four years I've repaid that faith and then some.
Over the past four seasons I've worked under four different chairman and although we haven't always seen eye to eye I'd like to think both of us have had the club's best interests at heart and over that period given the fans some memorable moments (too many to mention).
Although, I didn't agree with the decision made on Thursday night I respect it and have accepted it. I have no ill feeling towards any one person or persons at the club.
I'd like to thank my staff Crossy, Lawty, Gemma, Salty and Chris who have gone above and beyond what's been expected of them and for putting up with me. Without them none of the success we've had would have been possible.
I'd like to thank all the players who have worked under me over the past four seasons (too many to mention) especially those from the start who again showed faith in me and stood by the club at a difficult time.
Lastly to the fans who are undoubtedly the heartbeat of this football club. Although I do understand your frustrations and your right to express your views I feel it's important to remember that in this period of transition the most important thing is THE FOOTBALL CLUB.
Managers, chairman and board members will come and go but what must remain is the support for this great football club. Thank you for your unrivalled and continued support over the last ten years not only as a player but as a manager it's been emotional.
Take care and stay safe, Ello.
