VALLEY REVIEW | Solly sends heartfelt thanks to fans

In Saturday's special edition of Valley Review, Chris Solly writes a column as he looks back at his last 10 years at the club.

Below is an extract from his column in which he sends a heartfelt thanks to supporters...

"I cannot thank you fans enough for the support and love you have shown me since day one. We have been through this journey together and you have lifted us players whenever we have needed it.

"You are the heartbeat of this club and the bond I have with this club is down to you. It’s an honour stepping out at The Valley with your backing and I have loved every second of this journey so far and I am just as excited as you for this upcoming season. From the bottom of my heart, thank you again!"

The 32-page official matchday programme for the friendly visit of Aston Villa is dedicated to Solly as the club celebrates his testimonial against Aston Villa and is available from in and around the ground, as well as in the Valley Superstore, for £2. All profits from programme sales will be going to Chris Solly's testimonial fund.
