Given our poor T17, I'm very proud of our 6th place this season. Starting out expecting a relegation battle, in the end we finished in a very safe position, and if a couple of draws had converted to wins the we could have finished in the top 3 or 4. We haven't invested in youth, so next season our aging squad will struggle. Well done to all promoted teams and nice to see Adam and James back in the top flight.
Some sad retirements - Cliff Michelmore and Simo Salminen off to coaching jobs. Both are the last members of CPR to serve in the title-winning Season 35 side. Cliff was a young striker who had a bit-part in that side, and to be frank his career never flourished, being a solid but unremarkable striker. Simo was a key defender then and played a crucial role up until this season just gone. The big Finn will be sorely missed.
Happy New Year all, and looking forward to the new season already!
