Love how much you dominated the league. Hopefully you can continue the winning ways in the Football League!!
Congratulations. Up the Football League you go! Thoroughly deserved and that cannot be argued.

Nowhere near good enough, I'm afraid. Plenty of work still to be done before next season, we're a long way from being ready.

I decided to go back to 442 for this one. I feel like it's a better fit for the squad we have. Things looked bleak when Tyreke Wilson was sent off fora horrendous two-footed lunge but the lads dug in well to pick up all three points, with Cameron Archer scoring his first goal since the start of October.

The win against Fylde sees us break the records for Most National League points in a season and Most National League wins in a season.

I thought this was going to be another one of those draws where we rue our missed chances but, thankfully, we were able to score two goals late on to pick up all three points.

I'll be honest, it was a little bit closer than I'd like but after the season we've had I'm not going to complain.

Sunday 24th April

The club have offered me a new two-year deal which I have decided to accept. The board wants us to avoid relegation next season.

We've also had some news on the stadium front. It'll be interesting to see what our attendance is like next season now we're in the football league.

I have also started working towards my Continental A License

What an absolutely incredible season it has been. I can't believe that we will be playing in the football league next season. That's going to be a massive challenge but it's one I can't wait for.

Manager of the Season

Delighted to win the Manager of the Year award with 15 voting points. It's been a great season for us, the players have been excellent, especially when it comes to putting up with my perfectionist managerial style.

Player of the Season

Oliver Sims of Bromley wins the Player of the Season award. That's the right winner in my opinion given his stats this season and he's also the player I voted for.

Club Awards

Fans' Player of the Season

There hasn't really been a standout player this season so I was quite interested to see who won this award. I have no complaints with Djed Spence winning the award, he has been brilliant this season.

Signing of the Season

This makes sense given that he won the Player of the Season award.

Young Player of the Season

A clean sweep for Djed!

I'm really happy with the squad we've managed to build but it remains to be seen if they can compete in League Two. We are massive relegation favourites as you'd expect.

We may have lost this but I'm pleased. We showed signs that we can be competitive at this level, which makes me more confident that we can escape the drop.

Excuse me!? He's only 18 so I'm going to let him off this time.

Not the easiest of groups in the Checkatrade Trophy

A fantastic first win in the football league! We dominated Solihull Moors, with Teddy Healey making up for complaining with two goals. For me, the main positive was the attendance, with 1,539 people attending the game. That'll certainly help the finances if that keeps up.

An absolutely quality result away from home. I feared that we would lose our lead when Smithy got sent off but the lads held on magnificently to pick up all three points.

I'm really proud of our performance against a very good Newcastle side. There was a point where it looked like we could cause an upset but we, unfortunately, ran out of steam towards the end.

Thursday 11th August

The Newcastle game more than doubled our record attendance!

Different season, same frustrations. There's no doubt that we should have won this but we didn't take our chances.

Click here for Match Stats

Same old, same old. We had enough chances to win 5 games let alone 1. At least we actually managed to get the win rather than draw 0-0.

Click here for Match Stats

We were desperately unlucky here. I thought we deserved to win but it just wasn't our day, with us hitting the woodwork twice. Still, at least we are competitive so far in League Two.

Click here for Match Stats

A great result and one we fully deserved. The lads are really surprising me so far this season with how well they are playing. We just need to find a way to put our chances away.

Click here for Match Stats

I wanted us to take our chances more and that we did in our opening Checkatrade Trophy game, dominating to win by five goals to nil. That said, it was a much-changed Walsall side so I'm taking this result with a pinch of salt.

I thought we'd be fighting relegation so to be 4th is absolutely astonishing. Hopefully, we can keep our form up and stay at the right end of the table.

Next Month's Fixtures

Great start to the season, especially when you consider the huge turnover in the summer to ready yourselves for the new challenge the Football League presents you. The young talent are certainly impressing so far and progression is certainly being made in all areas, on and off the pitch. Congratulations on the record attendance! Luke Waterfall was the standout name for me. Not only is he contributing to the impressive defence, but he grabbed you all three points against Barnet. You can't complain at that! Captain material, indeed.
Some superb results in there, a fantastic beginning to life in the Football League!
You've absolutely steamrolled your way through the leagues! I think everybody here who has read this story has seen and appreciated your dedication to content and I've been incredibly impressed by the amount of detail you have squeezed into this on a relentless and consistent basis. Bravo, sir!
Thanks for all the kind words guys. I'm really excited with the squad I've been able to build and I really think we can do well in League Two and beyond
