So, the Exeter City Football Club rollercoaster is taking the final twists and turns of the season, and it’s probably fair to see we’ve been on something of a journey these last few weeks.

But, do you know what, despite missing as many as seven of our first team squad, and pretty much all of our strikers out of action in the match against Ipswich, we still went in and battled until the end, as we’ve done in all our matches against the top teams in the league.

As Gary said in his pre-match interviews, Ipswich were the best team in the division and rightly deserved to go up. So, it was tough, but we learned from it and take those learnings forward to next season. Well done, as well to Plymouth, who are also promoted, good luck to both teams in the Championship.

We’ve still got our final game against Morecambe to go, and I suspect it’s going to be another big game, with a sell-out crowd at SJP and Morecambe battling to keep their place in the league. Like I say, it is a rollercoaster right up until you step off the ride!

The Morecambe match also been designated retro shirt day. I dug a couple of shirts out from back in the day to wear, but I’ve got to say, those materials just don’t wash as well, as both seemed to have shrunk…It’s also Kids in Charge day, which is always a lot of fun, when the youngsters take over the top jobs, I’d better watch out, there’s some seriously talented youngsters out there.

Talking of talented youngers, the next generation of city stars are currently in Denmark experiencing the best of Danish football. Thanks to the support of Exeter City Supporters’ Trust the Academy’s under 11s flew to the country to take part in the Fleggard Cup this weekend. Good luck to them!

Back to the UK, I joined Gary, Nick Hawker, Elaine Davis, and other club directors and staff for the opening of the new exhibition at Topsham Museum, celebrating the life of Bolton Wanderers and City legend Dick Pym and marking the centenary of the famous ‘white horse’ cup final at Wembley.

The opening coincided with our match against Bolton, so it was also good to see some representatives from the club there. I did ask fellow city legend, goalie Kev Miller if he was Dick’s understudy - apparently not, although it appears they did both frequent The Lighter! It’s a fantastic exhibition, which runs until October, and it’s also a great museum, so I’d recommend heading down there.

The women’s team have been on an incredible run, winning 11 of their last 11 games and they sit at the top of the table! But it’s out of their hands from here, as second place Cardiff have one more match to play, which could see them leapfrog our girls – and only one team can go up...The Cardiff game is next weekend, and I’m sure there will be a lot of us keeping an eye on that scoreline!

We took just over 900 supporters to both Hillsborough and Portman Road, which is just incredible. If you’ve been at any game, home or away, this season – thank you. The support for our boys has been second to none this season and I know I speak for Gary and the squad when I say how much your support has been appreciated. And lots of you are already preparing to get behind the team for our next season in League One.

So, thanks again for all for your support. In what is the 20th anniversary of supporter ownership, it has been an incredible return to League One - our first time for ten years - and with every match your support has got louder and more inspiring. Don’t forget, the future’s bright, the future’s red and white.
