Head Coach Joe Dunne said: “As I have mentioned in recent weeks, I have never enjoyed coaching a group as much as I have this one during the last two months.

"I now look forward to continuing to work alongside our talented team of staff here, in developing the exciting potential of individuals from both within our first team and beyond from the Club’s youth set-up.

“I would also like to thank the supporters who have backed the team with such passion both at the Abbey and on the road right through this season, particularly in the past two months."
