“After 21 games, it all came down to the last game of the season, a win needed to guarantee promotion and win the league and we did it!

“Massive thanks to everyone involved on our journey this season from players, supporters, sponsors, scorers & our fantastic Groundsman who have all made such a massive contribution.
