Bodmin boss Darren Gilbert "I had some lovely messages of support from clubs and managers of clubs before the match, so I would like to thank them. Everybody seemed to be supporting us."

Bodmin skipper Steve Simmonds on the side's next opposition: "They won't like coming down here to play, snow or no snow."

Glynn Hooper, manager of Newquay: "Bodmin deserved it. Ashington only seemed to have one tactic and that was the long ball."

Former Bodmin boss Alan Carey, shouting from the stand in the dying minutes: "Keep the ball, keep the ball."

Bodmin goalkeeper coach Terry Huddy on Ashington: "They weren't as good as they thought they were."

Ashington committee man and press officer Brian Bennett: "Good luck to Bodmin. They deserved it. We weren't at our best today."

Bodmin club stalwart Sheila Chapman: "Absolutely magic."

Bodmin striker Luke Hodge, who missed the game with a broken arm: "Fantastic result. The players were up for the battle, gave everything in difficult conditions."

Long distance Bodmin supporter Chris Johnson, who travelled by train from his home in Runcorn on Friday to get to the match: "What a great day for the club. They did us proud."

Bodmin secretary Nick Giles: "On behalf of the club I would like to thank everyone for their support, from companies who offered their sponsorship to the supporters who came to watch us. We look forward to seeing you again."
