Season's over strangely early and thank goodness we live to fight another season in the Conference. Was there ever any doubt?

Been reflecting back over the last 8 months, remembering some quality moments and a few despairing ones!

Carlisle Att. 7234
Stevenage 1 Canvey 4
Canvey 3 Stevenage 0
Missing the Northwich game/ Firework display.
Guess the time game on the Coach
The return of the Drum
Fred "The Bugle" Abbott perfecting his art.
The final whistle against Scarborough
Every Pub/Clubhouse Away.
The Pennine Way
M1,M4,M6
Breakfast Club at Thorney Bay

Not so good.........
The Shay Hotel
Gravesend Stewarding
Coach back from Halifax

Havent been to as many games this season as I have in previous seasons due to work but from my own point of view I would have to say Stevenage away was the highlight of the season. Had a great day exploring Stevenage and seeing us ripping apart a team who would eventually make the play offs and who have the best ground in the conference.

The low point of the season came in the same game when Lee Boylan was stretchered off. This changed the pattern of the whole season for us and we were never the same after that game.

Other highlights for me would be the Scarborough home game and last minute equalizers against Crawley, Northwich and Exeter.
Other lowlights would be watching the scores come in 2 weeks ago and seeing Forest Green win at Carlisle and us losing at Tamworth and realizing we might just go down. Thank heavens that feeling didnt last long.

Highlights: snatching vital points against Crawley, Exeter and Northwich. Low points: Crawley away, Leigh away, Bishops Stortford (Trophy - was quite looking forward to meeting Grays in the final !). Anyway well done to all the team for doing the business and for finishing the game on an unbeaten run of 3 games !

Agree with Exeter being special and Man.Utd. in the same dressing room not long after!! How far have we come....Great stuff.
Also agree Halifax was very dissapointing.Bad result and dodgy fans a bit like Gravesend where the stewards were totally inadequate in dealing with a Situation.
Our Stewards have been superb this year,well done to you all.Police a bit OTT at times though.

Think most people have covered it.

Personal high for me was last Sunday whilst on holiday I finally found an English newspaper with the final table in and realised that the lads were just winding me up about Leigh RMI and Tamworth and were saving all the wins until I had buggered off leaving me in suspense for a fortnight - over the moon when I realised we were in for another season of Conference football.

Other Highs

Exeter Away - first win of the season, great ground, beautiful part of the country and we deserved it!

Great comments from the Barnet fans regarding our support at Underhill and also our Forum being one of the best for actual football chat. Also drowning their fans out at Underhill.

Home game against Dagenham and double over Stevenage.

Northwich away on a Friday night and watching the surreal background of fireworks whilst we made a terrific fight back in the second half, but to no avail.

The drum at Barnet seems to be something a little extra special which will hopefully continue to raise an atmosphere both home and away - well done to them. The way the club seems to be realising that we are in the top flight of non league part time sides and is trying to expand the fan base using some great touches such as the easter eggs and coach.

The amount of last minute goals we managed.

The amount of teams who said we were the crapiest side they had played and couldn't understand why they didn't beat us <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Danny Potter entertaining the fans and shagging the York mascot up the [****!!****] at half time away.

Oh sod it - the whole bloody experience this season has been a high.

Lows

Gravesend Away and being filmed by the riot police was a bit of a joke.

Lee being injured and some weird team selections and exclusions.

Going all the way to Leigh RMI - unbelievable.

Carlisle - a lot of effort put in by the supporters club etc. only for the team to commit on the field suicide <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/mad.gif" alt="" />

Getting absolutely soaked at the home game against Aldershot and getting a result when I thought we were going to be on the end of a hiding - 1-0 down after 5 minutes.

The crap officials this season.

Crawley away - their fans singing 1-0 and you [****!!****] it up!


Got some great memories this season <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

agree with the majority of the earlier posts but a another high for me would be if Southend after losing their recent final miss out on automatic promotion and enter the play offs and then blow that as well. ... I maybe cruel but I dont like Southend. ... does anyone agree or am I in for some stick!

Still would like to see the Sarfend win at Grimsby saturday just for Tilly,and another couple of "High's" last night with the riccay confined to Ryman footy next year to battle with AFC Wombledon (doubt it) and Lakeside FC staying put. Sets up a good chance of the two Cambridge visits next season.
