AS the curtain falls on the season I can scarcely believe all that has happened to our club in the last 10 months.

To be honest, if you had offered me another year of progression up the league and 61 points at the start of the season I would have snatched your hand off.

Lots of lessons have been learned and there are still many trying days ahead with tough decisions to be taken on and off the field.

I had hoped we could finish higher than the big-spending Bradford, but Saturday’s draw at Cheltenham was only good enough to finish one place below the Bantams.

The victory over Bradford at our place was one of my highlights of the season as they had arrived with their newly installed ex-England manager Peter Taylor and had high hopes of a win.

Crewe are another team that left the Crown Ground empty handed this season, as the Reds quite simply blew them away.

As for goal of the season, it has to be the stunning strike from Jimmy Ryan that sent the Shrimps home with their tails between their legs.

Doing the double over Morecambe was very special and I wish them all the best in the play-offs, safe in the knowledge that it should have been us going to Wembley.

Other memorable moments include the candle-lit protest, the phone call I got telling me that Ilyas Khan was going to save the club, the fans from Burnley Blackburn, Bury and many other clubs coming along to support us in the SOS games against Darlington and Crewe.

But for me the proudest thing about this season has been every single Ultras display.

They have brought more young fans into the ground this year with a mix of pride and passion.
