    Paul Hartley after final game of season

    We were not at our best today, it wasn’t good, a lot of people came to watch and putting on a performance like that wasn’t great but we got ourselves back into the game in the second half. We’ve had one home defeat all season and we beat our previous Third Championship winning tally by gaining 77 points. The players have done brilliantly over the season, they have been absolutely magnificent. You always have expectations and you always want to try and get promotion but sometimes it doesn’t turn out that way. I’ve got to give the players great credit, they’ve been magnificent. We’re going up to a higher division next season so it will be tougher. Our aim is to encourage people to come and watch us, so we hope some of the 2,551 people who we at the game today will come back next season – I think we have to try and consolidate because we know we’re up a league – we are in the process of speaking to a few more players – we’ve already tied up ten and got two or three pre-contracts. The pressure will be on us to move up a division and do well. I’ve committed myself for the next two years and it’s a building job here. Our ambition is to reach the First Division so we will have a right go at it and see where it takes us.
