Reflecting on the season, it has been an eventful campaign to say the least. There was a sense of relief when we kicked off the season last July after a very tough and frustrating two years.

On the league front it has been a very frustrating campaign and on the subject of the JD Cymru North congratulations to Airbus for winning the title – well deserved.

But our exploits in the JD Welsh Cup will give us the platform to do much better next season.

Our Welsh Cup run certainly caught the imagination and the wins over Cardiff Met and Connah’s Quay in particular will be remembered for a long time.

It wasn’t our day in the semi-final against The New Saints but our performance on the day was one we can all be proud of.

And of course our fantastic Supporters showed once again why they are the best in Wales. I’d also like to thank the Supporters Committee for their massive contribution and support.

I would just like to thank all our wonderful fans for your support home and away this season. As Steve Evans has said it’s a fan base that deserves to be in the Cymru Premier and the aim next season will be to achieve that.

Steve has been made a big impression since his appointment in January and is already planning for the new season – very much a case if watch this space.

Of course the nature of football means hard decisions sometimes have to be made and that was very much the case when he parted company with Craig Hogg at the start of the year.

My association and friendship with Craig goes back a very long time Craig began this process and we wouldn’t be at this point if it wasn’t for his hard work and that’s something we will not forget.

Thank you to all our partners and sponsors, whose support is vital. Grateful thanks in particular to Chris and the team at Go2People and the continued backing of 4 Crosses Construction – thank you Brian and David.

Our digital partners Yellow Fly Design have created some fantastic content this season – cheers Glynne – and the programme has brought to you thanks to Match Day Creative. Thanks to David Thomas as well for capturing some of the key moments of the season.

Thank you to all club officials and to our wonderful volunteers, without whom the club wouldn’t be what it is.

My thanks goes to you all but honourable mentions must go to Gary Lloyd – aka Gary Coaches, who was the deserved recipient of the inaugural John D Jones award who along with Dave Dickin do a lot of work from day to day at the ground.

Chrissy and Hayley as well as their team have kept us all fed and watered throughout the season.

Elfyn Jones has worked tirelessly and spent long hours throughout the campaign to maintain what is the among the best playing surfaces in the country. Diolch.

John Ashley also puts in many hours as well in his role as kitman and thank you for your efforts.

Thank you as well to all involved with the Academy – it’s good to see the involvement of a number of players with the first team – and the Juniors, all ensuring that this club has a bright future going forward. Thank you to the players, coaches and all the families for your dedication.

There’s a time to reflect on those dear friends and fellow Seagulls we lost during the season.

Bill Murray, who did so much to ensure the club survived difficult times, Alan Banks, whose contribution and loyalty to this club makes him a true legend like his good friend Johnny

Carmichael, another club giant who did so much and we are all still coming to terms with the recent tragic loss of Elgan Jones.

After an eventful few months we can now take stock of the campaign, have a bit of a break and then push ahead for next season and beyond. See you in July.

Happy Easter/Pasg Hapus.


Neil Coverley (Chairman)
