Season 2012/13 Review - Kingstonian in the Blue Square Premier
Got off to a great start and rode on the morale boost from that for a while until injuries hit in October. With no proper backup we dipped down below the promotion spots, only to stabilize around 6th-7th once I got my players back. The January transfer window brought some much needed signings and after a slightly inconsistent period they helped make a great late-season push for the top. In the end it was only good for 3rd, but for our first season in the BSP that's a position I'll take any day. A bit surprised actually that the level wasn't that different from the BSS.
FA Cup - League 1 Hartlepool were just way too strong for us.
FA Trophy / Final - First cup win! And a decent £50K for the club.
Now, after the January transfers, probably among the best in the league. No one I'm particularly disappointed with frankly, they've all played important roles throughout the season.
So much for keeping the BSS-winning team intact... But I'm glad I didn't. The stand-out signings are so many, but probably spearheaded by Moyes, Hibbert and Bauza. Moyes proved as solid as you'd expect on this level, Hibbert was our most reliable striker and Bauza worked great next to him during the late-season push.
Wish me luck in the playoffs/FA Trophy final.
