IAN RICHARDSON'S END OF SEASON REPORT (posted Fri 20th May 2016)

I have enjoyed my first season being in charge even though it has been a bit of an up and down season. I believe we have a good group of players who got us to two Cup Finals, winning the St Marys but unfortunately losing to a very good Hadley side in the Herts Charity Shield. We finished in mid table but with the players we have we should have finished higher in the league. We had some great results, scoring 4 goals against Berkhamsted, 5 against Hertford Town, 4 at London Colney and 6 against Welwyn Garden City.

Hopefully next season we can keep this group of players together and with 2 or 3 additions we could turn some of the draws into wins. We could then push on and see where it takes us.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Paul Bonham, Stuart Stedman and Gary Looker as well as Reserve Team Managers Chris Juraszek and Richard Smith for their much appreciated help during the season. I would also like to thank Mick Eldridge, the rest of the committee and the supporters for their support. I know the players appreciated it particularly at the mid week away games during the winter months.

Now for few weeks off before we start again in July (apart from talking to players during the pre-season - it never stops!!!).

Have a good break and we'll see you in August.

Cheers

Ian
