A Worcester City football player joked he was returning to his "day job" the day after after club's historic league win. 

Logan Stoddart, who played right back in last night's (April 9) thrilling game against Thornbury Town, was back to work after a night of celebrations. 

Mr Stoddart along with fellow teammate Kyle Belmonte were up early this morning tarmacking.

The players thought that it would make a great picture following the 1-0 win over Thornbury Town to top the Hellenic League. 

Mr Stoddart said: "We were playing away and we had over 500 fans join us as we won the league. 

"We won with five games remaining and fans came onto the pitch with flags and banners."

Despite winning the Hellenic League, the team is not celebrating too early with five games remaining of the season and a huge Vase semi-final match on Saturday (April 13) against Great Wakering Rovers.

Mr Stoddart continued: "We have a big game on Saturday in the second leg of the Vase, so I'm going to hold onto the celebrating. 

"We are keeping it tame as our full focus is on Saturday. 

"I never go into a game thinking that we are going to win, as it was a tough game but as soon as the whistle went it was a great feeling.

"We got back at 12pm and we were out at 6am tarmacking so now we are just letting our legs recover." 

Worcester City manager Chris Cornes was unable to make the game, but listened live and said: "It was a great win. 

"The euphoria around the game was brilliant, and the lads were very jubilant and buzzing at the pub after. 

"We are now focused on Saturday as the finals are played at Wembley. 

"It's going to be a difficult game but we are 1-0 up after the first leg but at this level you don't get many opportunities to play at Wembley, so we are going to do what we have been doing all season and try to win."
