2018/19 Season

Just thought I'd post my highlights and lowlights of the season.
Overall u think it's been a very good and enjoyable season for club and fans alike (certainly that's IMO)
Seventh place finish and a MSc cup final to boot as well, I'd have taken that if given back in August.
Anyway here it is listed, the good and the not so good.

HIGHS
King's Langley away, first away win, thought then that the team had the making of a good season - one not struggling near the relegation zone.

Chesham United away, Dylan Kearney scored two there, you could see what a good player he was going to be for the club.

Our attacking play, for a good part of the season it's been fantastic to watch. So many goals, brilliant.

Some new places to visit.
Must admit I've enjoyed going south west rather than around the M25.

Wins against (the ones I got to see) Hendon, Merthyr, Farnborough, Supermarine, Hayes and Yeading, Poole, Gosport and of course Salisbury where it was great to see the players come over and celebrate with the fans.

Other notables

Dylan Kearney, have I mentioned him.
Brentford, Weymouth away, Clapton (always wanted to tick that ground off, what a mud bath!)
NGU, and Northwood.


LOWS

Kearney moving on.
The loss of form after he left, (think we would have made the play-offs had he stayed)
The shenanigans in the crowd against Merthyr at home.
Losing to Hornchurch and Biggleswade in the Fa cup and Trophy.
Our disciplinary record.
Losses to Wimborne, Frome, Farnborough and Hartley Wintney.
After the Hartley match I knew the game was up as far as the play-offs were concerned.

Any other views out there?

That's a fair summary of the season.
A high even before a ball was kicked was retaining most of the squad from the previous season even though we switched leagues.
Cumberbatch & Minter left but Al Droubi & Frank Keita were very able replacements. The introduction of Kearney then raised the bar for the whole squad.

A disappointment would be never really finding our best central defensive pair or trio despite having plenty of very able players in those positions. Our signings from New Year onwards didn't really bring anything to the party which was a shame as we needed at least one to have an impact.

I really enjoyed this season, I certainly do not want us to be in the Isthmian next term. Truro should be fun & return visits to Taunton , Dorchester, Salisbury, Merthyr & Wimborne will be looked forward too.

For me the highlight of the season was Josh Andrews debut against Basingstoke and the low was our lack of discipline at the Uxbridge charity cup game. The general opinion seems to want another season in Southern league. It would be great if people could chip in to the coach fund again, particularly as we are looking at an overnighter at Truro.

I'm another happy customer. I fully enjoyed this season also. My thanks to management, players, fellow supporters and all those who work behind the scenes for making it so enjoyable.
My highlights were the home win over Taunton. The way the team kept their cool despite the obvious thoughts of revenge were admirable plus the way they ignored the fouls and provocation from the opposition.
Another highlight was immediately after the Taunton defeat with three players suspended and others injured to then go and beat Merthyr, Beaconsfield and draw with Weymouth in the space of a week showed great spirit.
