2014/15 - Swindon Supermarine FC - Blue Square South
League Table - Finances - Graph - Transfers
We win our first five, then go winless in the next five. Form picks up again, and after 15 games we sit atop, and I'm confident. This is the best squad we've had and we're thoroughly outplaying our opponents. Then we are atrocious for much of the next 15 games, and we're out of the playoff spots. We claw our way back and finish the season in 4th.
In the meantime, we turn into cup specialists, knocking out an assortment of BSP sides and even Northampton of League Two, as we make the second round proper of the FA Cup and the final of the FA Trophy.
We face Woking in the first leg, who had beaten us at home only two weeks prior. It ends 0-0, and we go into the FA Trophy final against BSP side Ebbsfleet. We lose 0-1 in a game where the difference in class was evident, as was their fitness levels as they finished 7th and had no other commitments. To the second leg away from home, and a goal in each half has us in the final in an unexpected result. Welling are our opponents, who finished a clear second.
By this point we are playing our 60th game of the season, and half the squad is jaded. We go down a goal early and don't have the energy to fightback, and it ends up 0-3.
Goal of the Season
At the girlfriend's house and her internet connection is shocking, so will skip it this season.
Nicolai Risvig - 28 goals and nine assists represents a pretty handy season. A bit of a hiccup mid-season as he cracked the sads over a fine for poor performance, but his last two months were huge. Also scooped the league Player of the Season award.
Omar Koroma - Not as dominant which was to be expected after such serious leg and foot injuries, but still bagged 20 goals.
Curtis Wynter - Our best defender and most consistent player, averaging nearly six and a half tackles per game in the league.
Meh, how about not inexplicably losing form?
