AFC Bridgnorth were victorious against Pershore Town in the second qualifying round of the FA Vase on the weekend.
Crook was a crucial clog in the operation to see the Meadowmen reach the first round proper for the first time since 2015/16.
On the achievement:
“I think we definitely needed the win to give us some confidence. We have had some tough results in the league and this, I know, will help us all at the club.
“I think we’ve been unlucky with how many injuries we have had but hopefully we can go on a run and win some games now.”
On his personal performance:
“I think I’ve been wanting to perform like that for a while now. I obviously want what’s best for the team and everyone knows that life as a keeper can be tough at times but when it’s good, it’s very good for me and everyone who supports me. I want to make sure that performing like that becomes a more regular occurrence.”
Looking forward to league action:
“I think we have set the standard now and just need to make sure we keep working hard as a team and make sure we listen to the gaffer even though we can’t understand him sometimes.
“We need to maintain this ruthlessness in defence and make sure we continue to be clinical in attack. We can see what the gaffer wants and how he wants us to play and we must remember this winning feeling to ensure that we can capture it again in the league.”
