Season Two – End of Season – May 2019

So.. The end of the season.   The title was secured at the beginning of March, with victory over Rochdale seeing that taken care of.     Unfortunately, we didn’t survive unbeaten until the end. 38 matches went by, until we were defeated by Bolton, 2-1 at the Macron Stadium, it didn’t stop us in …

Season 2 – End of December – January Transfer Window
