The season is over, we are champions and have secured our 2nd straight promotion by a huge margin. This was pretty obvious in the way we played some of our last few games which is disappointing because I wanted us to set records and win by an even bigger margin but I can’t complain after the way the boys have played all season. We played against Leicester in the JPT final and held on until the 70th minute. It seemed at that point they were just too strong and scored twice in quick succession to win the trophy but we will be back next year to make up for this disappointing loss. Nobody expected us to reach the final so looking back on it I really cant complain. We were expected to finish 22nd in the league and we are right at the top.
The month of March was full of victories but the final month was indifferent. We won 1, drew 2 and lost 2 which was probably the worst part of our season but luckily we had wrapped up promotion and the title and I am unbelievably proud of the group of boys I have with me. Mark Cullen, who we had on loan in the BSP and then got on a free transfer, was outstanding. He scored a massive 24 goals in the league despite playing only 32 games. He is only 22 and will be a huge factor for us in our time in League One and hopefully our push to get our 3rd promotion in a row. Tom Elliot, who had started the season on fire finished strongly too after coming back from a serious injury and finished with 19 goals in 27 games.
We now need to have a strong transfer window and my scouts have been working tirelessly to bring in support for our first season in League One. There will definitely be some big signings coming in to the club and we have already secured our first signing before the transfer window opens, signing left back Paul Dummet from Newcastle. At just 22 and with a good future ahead of him he will definitely become first choice left back and hopefully will be just as successful a signing as everyone at this club so far.
End of Season player performance:
We had some excellent performances throughout this season and so many of these guys have been an important factor of our amazing year. The lowest overall average was only 6.88, with the highest hitting 7.53. There is a lot of room for improvement here but I have no doubts that my players are all looking to improve.
