You wait all year for a clean sheet and then two come in a row.

Although we didn’t manage to finish the season with a win, there were certainly plenty of positives to take from Saturday’s game against Bury.

They have been on an unbelievable run of late but for the most part I felt we were the better side. We definitely had the best chances anyway.

Some might say that it was a meaningless game but we were not thinking that way. We thought it was very important to try and end the season on a high.

We played some of the best football we have in a while and that is something we need to try and do all the time, not just when the pressure is off.

Everyone seemed to have a great evening at the end of season awards after the game.

It was great to see Flem (Andy Fleming) dominate proceedings as he has been absolutely fantastic for the whole campaign.

He showed just how good he is against Bury by the way he completely controlled the midfield area. He is still relatively young and the fact he just keeps getting better is a huge bonus for us.

On a personal note, I was over the moon to put pen to paper on a new two-year deal.

As soon as the gaffer (Jim Bentley) said he wanted to extend my deal there was no hesitation on my part.

I love the club and am really excited to be part of it for the next two seasons at least.
