Assistant manager & captain Adam Murray says the feeling of winning the Blue Square Bet Premier League has only just sunk in.
The 31-year-old, who scooped four awards at the club’s annual dinner last month, watched the dvd from the final game of the season last night for the first time.
“[Watching the dvd] it finally sunk just what we have achieved and the steps we have made under two years in which the gaffer has been in charge.
“There was a lot of hard work put in last season but I think we showed that we were the best team in the league.
“I think it was our unity that won it. Even at times, when we weren’t playing so well and perhaps weren’t performing at the levels we set, our unity and team spirit pulled us over the line.”
On receiving his end-of-term accolades, Murray said: “It’s nice to be appreciated for the hard work over the course of a season from the supporters. I put my heart and soul into everything last season and it’s nice to see that recognition from them.
“It was one of the most memorable seasons I’ve had, both on a team level and as an individual, despite not having a pre-season and starting the season a little later than planned. I felt I had one of my best seasons,” he added.
Murray picked up the following awards at the annual dinner on Sunday 21 May:
The Emma Stamp Memorial Trophy for the most Man of the Match Awards, Chad Player of the Season, Stags Supporters’ Association Player of the Season and Board of Directors’ Player of the Year
