Video & Quotes from the boss following the final game of the season...

  • Dino on a tough ending to the season…

“It was always going to be a difficult game. The difficult part of it was that up until yesterday I didn’t even know who was going to play as we had so many injuries the last few weeks at the training ground.

“The back four and midfield had never played with each other before so I knew it would be a difficult task."

  • Dino on a positive impact from the scholars…

“The positives for us is that we finished the game with three 17 year olds (Arthur Iontton, Dylan O’Donnell, Andrnocios Georgiou) and they all did well, especially the two of them that came on at half-time.

"The second half was much better. We kept posession better and we moved forward with it so that is credit to those three lads."

  • Dino on a decent defensive performance…

“That is testament to Ryan Johnson who came back for his first game in two years I think for the club, he slotted in nicely and had a decent game with Jack King there.

“TVC was out of position, Whelpdale was out of position, we had so many players out of position but we I thought we kept them at bay and limited them to hardly any chances.

“If we had got a point out of it then fantastic but it wasn’t meant to happen. I am delighted the season is finished; we need a lot of change as I want to build a team that competes every game, plays on ambition and plays on the front foot.”

  • Dino on planning for next season…

“It started already. We have already been talking about planning for next season as we have been safe for three or four weeks now. Hopefully by the end of June we will be in much better shape, have a much better team and one that the fans are proud to support.

“On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday I am going to have one-on-one conversations with the players. I want players that was to stay at the football club, want to play for the badge and want to play for our fans.

“They support us in great numbers out fans and today they were fantastic. I heard them throughout the game so I want to thank them for that and wish them a good and safe summer. I look forward to seeing them in pre-season.”
