Ball: I’m proud and heartbroken


Magnanimous in victory, gracious in defeat, Jimmy Ball was a gamut of emotions as Forest Green’s Wembley dreams ended in a game of high-octane drama.

Speaking after the game, Ball said: I’m proud and heartbroken – a wonderful group of men who went to the well and gave me everything – I’m proud of them all.”
