2016, the 30th anniversary of the Milk Cup, the 20th anniversary of our last football league promotion. Things happen when the year ends in a six.
When we met Notts County at the beginning of season it felt like we’d be testing our promotion credentials against a team who would surely be competing come May. In fact, they looked disinterested and shellshocked from their relegation last season. We on the other hand, were breathtaking in pace and style.
They continue to falter in the nothingness of 15th place, but this is still a test of our promotion credo insomuch that we need to start showing some resilience through an unrelenting period which will run throughout January at the very least.
