We were all buzzing. Everyone, whether we’ve lived here all our life or been here for a year, know how much it meant to everyone at the club.

We’re all good mates, it’s a lot easier to turn up and grind out results when you’re doing it with your mates
What was your biggest challenge last season?
The biggest challenge was probably being at the top end of the table. Everyone you play against is desperate to beat you so we had to make sure we turned up every week.

All of the challenges of next year; the increased travelling, stronger teams. You always want to test yourself at the highest level possible so really looking forward to giving it a crack.
