So long as we kick off next season in the Ryman League Premier Division, and at Silver Jubilee Park, 2015-16 can be consigned to the history books as a hugely disappointing campaign, and winning the London Senior Cup would be a small bonus.

From the extreme high of the second half of last season (final match excepted) to our struggles in 2015-16, this season has been as depressing as it has been surprising. I know that a number of teams have had horrible reactions to losing playoff finals (AFC Hornchurch and Leyton Orient, both playoff final losers in 2013-14, went down in 2014-15), but I genuinely thought we had a good chance of winning the title. Then came player holidays, injuries, suspensions, departures and form loss and we are where we are.

Here’s hoping the slate grey skies don't go against the weather forecast and dump loads more water on Earlsmead this afternoon - Monday, Wednesday and Saturday is crazy enough, especially with two trips to Sussex. Isn't it lucky we are not part-time!!!
