Adam Miller celebrates on the pitch at Wembley Picture: Matthew Reading
Unused substitute Adam Miller was the last player off the Wembley pitch on Saturday as he put personal feelings aside to celebrate a promotion-winning season.
Miller saluted the rest of the team for their efforts and looked ahead to some big games next term.
He said: "I was devastated for myself that I didn’t get on but for the boys, the team, the gaffer and the club, we deserve to be in the league we are in now.
"I was so excited, I just didn’t want to get off the pitch at the end, and it was just an amazing feeling.
"I’m absolutely ecstatic and we’re playing sides like Leeds United and not Accrington Stanley, without any disrespect to them.
"I was here last year when we got relegated and we got a lot of criticism, especially some of the non-league boys, and I think we all stuck together, the gaffer brought a few more faces in and I like to think we’ve proved a few people wrong.
"Hopefully now we can get the respect we deserve."
Miller has recently returned from injury and has played 34 games this season.
"I feel I have played my part, and I’m more than pleased with what I’ve done," he added. "I can’t wait for next season."
