Away League Record
10 wins, 3 draws, 8 defeats - almost identical to last season

Goals Conceded (in all competitions)
102 in total; 51 at home and 51 away - how's that for balance!

Goals Scored Half-by-Half (in all competitions)
36 in the first half; 45 in the second

Top Scorer
Rick Whyatt with 26 in all competitions - exactly the same number as last season's top scorer Rhys Webb. Without Rick's goals we would have been 24 points worse off this season...and we would have finished bottom of the table.

Impact of Cheadle Scoring or Conceding First
Every year we highlight this because every year it is the same. Simply put if we score first then the likelihood of us getting something out of the match is significantly increased. Take a look....

What Happened When We SCORED First?

...and What Happened When We CONCEDED First?

Anything Else Worth Mentioning?

  • Jake Ambrose was the second-highest scorer with 9. This was down to a late surge as 5 of those goals came in the final ten matches of the season!
  • This was the first time we had failed to score v Daisy Hill. Ever.
