Email from Durham City

Thanks for the hospitality shown to us by FCUM on Saturday at Gigg Lane but perhaps even more importantly can I ask, on behalf of Durham City FC, if you could somehow pass on our appreciation for the standing ovation that FCUM supporters gave the Durham City team after our unexpected victory.

Despite enduring what must have been a frustrating and ultimately disappointing afternoon for them, to then stand and applaud the young city side as they left the field, which in the circumstances took some time, was a wonderful gesture especially when many other supporters may have barracked their own side in similar situations.

True Sportsmanship !
