A Season away from home
Playing away from New Abbey all season seemed to affect everyone at the club. No-one seemed really happy playing at Dumfries High School 3G pitch but we had to bear it as the work on our pitch was completed over the close season and we had to allow the new grass seed to grow and thicken.
It was a relief when the season finally ended and we could think about returning to New Abbey.
There were a few pluses at the High School as we only called off one game all season so we could get our games on even at night as the facility had floodlights.
We also so the addition to the squad of a number of young players which was good to see. Their enthusiasm and honesty and overall technical skills added to a squad which was relying on playing football at all times. This philosphy didn't always work, but when it did it was a joy to watch
Fraser and Alan should be applauded for sticking to their guns throughout the season even when results went against us.
Back to New Abbey next season, back home!!
