Agree with all the above really. Fantastic night all round.

Whyteleafe were excellent hosts and have a fantastic facility at Church Road. For me, it was a real glimpse of what SJP could become. And the game certainly did them and the Ryman League proud. Two sides committed to playing football, excellent spirit throughout with barely any handbags or unnecessary nonsense.

I thought Grays were excellent, particularly 2nd half. They gave us a real shelling - but I lost count of the number of times a Hendon body got in the way of shots and the number of saves and excellent catches made by Ben. At 3-1, he made 3 genuinely top class saves to preserve the two goal lead.

There's still a heck of a lot to play for, but I'm delighted for everyone - Simon, Rob, Mike, Dave B, Gary, Freddie, Scott, all the players and all the fans - that we have something tangible to show for everyone's efforts this season. Coming away empty handed would have felt somewhat anti-climatic. Instead, I'm thirsty for more now!

Finally, apologies to those unable to get to the game who might have been following the twitter feed for the occasional typo. A combination of crappy smart phone along with almost non-stop action on the pitch made life slightly more difficult than usual.

Well done everyone. Proud to be a Green.
