Season Review

As is the way with this club of late, we started the season with a first team manager change. Steve Nicholson stepped down after 2 tough years on the field, but had helped to put in place a much better structure and feeling off the field, which helped put a spring in everyone's step at the start of this season. We'd kept hold of nearly everyone who finished the previous season and added new (and old) faces, most notable of which was the new first team player manager Mark Scoreby. Chris Watkinson resumed as manager of the reserve team (and chairman) with Tony Hall and Marc Peo was assisting Scoo with the firsts.

A really good pre-season had us looking forward to the season. Turn outs for training were very good, and the squad was as big as it's been for years. Skippered by Waddo, the first X1 started brilliantly winning their first 3 league games and progressing in the Junior cup. The form changed however, and we found points hard to come by. Scoo then had to leave the club for personal reasons, before Tony Hall stepped up from the resers to run the firsts with Peo again assisting. This seemed to lift the side as we finished the season brilliantly - winning 7 out of 11 games including a humdinger at Heslington where we scored 3 screamers, had a man sent off and saved the win with a last second goal line clearance. After taking points off all the top sides, the only disappointing thing is thinking what might have been without our bad run in the middle - anyway, things are certainly looking positive for next year.

The resers were up against it for another tough season in the Reserve top flight. Again we were the only side in Reserve A without a Premier league first team, so staying up was always going to be a big ask. That said, we had an improved squad, with many of the players stepping up to the firsts after good displays. Paul Wishart assisted Woco after Tony left for the firsts, and, skippered by Des Drum we enjoyed a much better season, finishing out of the relegation places and having a good good run in the junior cup - the highlight of which was an amazing turn around against York Acorn first team, coming back from 4-1 down to then go and win the penalty shootout.

Off the field the club continues to grow. New sponsors and a hard working committee mean the club can look forward to next season. The First XI finished 6th in Division 2, the Reserves finished 8th in Reserve A.
