Stanley boss John Doolan was pleased to finish the season on a high note after beating Tranmere 4-1 at the Wham Stadium.

James Norris put the visitors in front with just 95 seconds gone but Lewis Shipley headed home an equaliser almost immediately.

Jack Nolan scored a couple of penalties in the second half and Alex Henderson, who has just signed a new three-year deal, was also on target as Stanley finished 17th in League Two.

Doolan said: “I am really pleased for the fans, the club, the chairman. Everyone has put a lot of effort in this season so it was fantastic to round it off like that.

"I wanted to send the fans home happy and the style we won the game was brilliant.

“Again, we gave a team an early goal but the character and response from the lads is fantastic. Jack’s got a wonderful left foot and at times he has been unplayable.

“I was also delighted for Alex, who has just signed a new contract. He is a good player and he is going to go on to be a great player.

“We have some good youngsters coming through, Dan Martin and Connor O’Brien were outstanding.

“The hard work started a few weeks ago for next season. We have a few things in the pipeline and hopefully they will come off.”
