Reaction: May on Harrogate Town & winning League Two

9 May 2021

Alfie May has hailed Cheltenham Town's achievement as 2020/21 League Two champions as "magnificent" after he was one of the goal scorers in the Robins 4-1 success over Harrogate Town on the final day of the season.

The busy attacker ended on 13 goals for the campaign with a close range finish in the first half in the win against the Sulphurites.

It was a result that confirmed the club would go up into League One as champions of the fourth tier, and May was delighted to cap the second promotion of his time in professional football as the team perched right at the top of the table.

"Sitting on Twitter and reading some comments about Cheltenham saying 'how are Cheltenham top of the league?' and 'how are they winning the league?'. It gave me a little bit of more to give today (Saturday) because we want to prove the doubters wrong," he said.

"Everyone probably says 'little old Cheltenham' but we've shown this year that we've gone up as champions. We've won the league. We're the best team in the league.

"To finish on top is magnificent. It's something that we wanted to achieve after the upset last year from the play-offs and we've done it - we've gone up as League Two champions.

"For me it's massive. Four years ago when I signed for Doncaster Rovers if you'd turned around to me and said you're going to have two promotions on your CV I would have snapped your hand off.

"I was talking to my brother about it the other day. He said you've only been in the game four years, you've had a great start to your career in the professional game, and this one means a lot because I've played a massive part in terms of goals and playing as many games as I have.

"The gaffer has trusted me. I'm probably not happy about how many goals I've scored. I want to score more. But at the minute I'm buzzing - we're League Two champions."
