Yeovil Town midfielder Ed Upson spoke to BBC Bristol reporter Andy Howard in the middle of the Wembley pitch on Sunday 19th May 2013, after the final whistle had blown in the League One Play-Off Final against Brentford.

AH: I'm in the centre-circle and I've got Ed Upson here. How does it feel?

EU: It's an unbelievable triumph for the whole club, the fans and the team. All of the lads on the pitch are absolutely knackered! It's brilliant.

AH: How was that for 90 minutes, or rather 96 minutes of football? How did it feel to be out there?

EU: Yes, it was a hot day. The pitch was a bit slow and it was a bit dry, but what a game! What a game! Unbelievable - the surroundings, the fans - I can't really say much more, to be honest. It's ridiculous!

AH: If you look behind you, you can just see the green and white flags being waved. It was such a support from Somerset today.

EU: I think they've brought close to 20,000, or maybe more. That's half of Yeovil, you know. It must be like a ghost town back home. It's unbelievable when you look at the fans - they deserve it - just look at them!

AH: How does it feel for you to know that you'll be a Championship player next year?

EU: It's something that I've been desperate to do for ages, so this is just ridiculous. I can't really put it into words.

AH: What is Gary Johnson going to do next?

EU: Well, I hope he stays, to be honest. I don't know if that's up in the air with the gaffer.

AH: And Gary Johnson just gives him a hug there! He must be one of the most important people in your career, surely?

EU: (sound of another player shouting "WE ARE GOING UP!" and interview is curtailed by Ed Upson getting mobbed!)
