RUGBY Town ended their campaign on a losing note with a 4-1 defeat at Leighton on Monday but that doesn’t disguise the fact that Valley have had a superb season following their relegation last term.
Martin Sockett has weaved together an excellent unit at Butlin Road that pressed for a play-off place all year and finishing sixth fulfilled his pre-season hopes. He said: “Obviously we missed out on the top five but we gave it a big go and considering this was a totally rebuilt squad I think it’s been a magnificent effort.
“Maybe if we could have brought in two or three quality players at the start of the year then possibly we could have been pushing the top sides in the division but it didn’t happen and we move on.”
Sockett added: “We have a great set-up here. The ground is superb, the training facilities first class and an excellent pitch. And I believe we have the nucleus of a team that can do better next season with some fine tuning.”
