Ports: "We Fully Deserved To Go Up"

27 July 2020

Chris Porter says it was only a matter of time before the Railwaymen returned to League One

The 37-year-old wrapped up a a hat-trick of achievements over the summer as he became a father to twins for the first time alongside sealing promotion and agreeing fresh terms to extend his stay for a further year.

After claiming top goalscorer for the second season in a row, our number nine believes he would've been dissapointed to not have reached 20 despite missing part of the cut short season due to injury.

Porter said: "I’m obviously delighted. I said to the manager when I came that I thought we would get promoted. It’s taken a few more years than what I was hoping, but I’m made up. My first promotion, I’ve been close so many times, to get it over the final hurdle, it’s brilliant.

"It’s just a pity we couldn’t celebrate with the fans and on the pitch, but I will take it nonetheless.

"I would’ve been disappointed if I didn’t close to or above 20 if the season had continued. It was a great season, I think we played some great stuff and we deserved to go up."
