The 2013/14 season saw Town still in non-League but things were looking better. We were actually beating teams that the fans expected to beat but weren’t quite ready to go up, although we came pretty close.
A decent FA Cup run saw us beat Scunny before losing to Huddersfield in the 3rd round and we also fell just short in the FA Trophy, losing in the semis to Cambridge. It was the same story in the league as Town missed out, losing to Gateshead over two legs in the play-off semi-final.
On the pitch, Disley was our captain, natch, and Ross Hannah must have stayed on side occasionally as he finished top scorer with 14 goals. Shaun Pearson, James McKeown, Lenell John-Lewis also featured and Chris Doig arrived from York City.
Off the pitch, the board had had enough of joint manager Rob Scott, showing him the door in September but retaining Paul Hurst who would go on to appoint Doig as his assistant.
The away shirt this season was one which I didn’t like at first but it’s grown on me. I just don’t like too much patterning on shirts. However, looking back it’s pretty decent, no? The shade of blue chosen for the shirt is good, the white collar and contrasting cuffs set it off nicely and you soon get over the spotted stripes.
Full marks to Errea, I say. You can still pick these shirts up cheaply on eBay but I’m guessing there aren’t too many kicking about as gates weren’t great this season.
