As we waited for our flight home at Dublin airport this evening, I thought at length about the Club's European journey this season.
Today we lost out to a very good side and we are rightly disappointed - individually and as a team. We understand what it takes to get to this stage of such a competitive tournament and are desperate to continue to improve.
One thing that is apparent throughout this season is the dedication of our supporters. Having spoken to many of you after the game and at the airport, I can assure you that every player appreciates and values your commitment to us.
This season is far from over, and we're thoroughly looking forward to challenge ahead - one that is made that much easier with you behind us all the way.
- Stuart Hooper, Club Captain
