I HAVE never known a season fly past like this one and today we play our final home game against Doncaster Rovers.

It’s another fantastic chance for us to measure ourselves against a club in the play-off positions.

We have matched up pretty well in those types of games this season, haven’t we?

It’s one last chance for the fans to come and enjoy what should be a good game of football.

I laughed this week when someone asked if we might be easing up now.

One word answer: No!

I was asked the same question before Charlton and Shrewsbury, but we didn’t change our approach or mentality and pulled off two fantastic victories.

The aim has to be to win both of our remaining games because it really does put smiles on people’s faces for the whole summer.

Today is a time for reflection and there will be three awards before kick-off.

The first is the young player of the year and I was involved in the discussion about this honour with Dan Harris and the other academy coaches.

We felt it was right to change the emphasis a little bit and make sure the award goes to someone who has come through the youth system.

We have made huge strides this season in developing a new generation of players who fully understand the values of the club – there are huge signs all through the building to remind them of what we expect from them.

It will be presented to a very deserving young man who we believe has a very bright future.

The other two awards are the players’ player of the year and the supporters player of the year.

I genuinely don’t know who has won the players’ vote – it was a secret ballot and they’ve kept it from me all week!

I do know who has won the supporters’ accolade, though, and I think you got it right – a player who wears that yellow shirt with real pride and has been outstanding for the whole season.

If you are coming along then get there nice and early and give the winners a huge ovation.

Then, whatever the result, we will come round and applaud you after the game because you have been fantastic and your support has meant the world to all of us.

As a manager your role goes beyond just picking the team on a Saturday.

You have a responsibility to check the progress of the whole club.

I have thoroughly enjoyed dropping in to watch the academy kids training throughout the season.

And on Thursday night, I had to stop and look again because with the sun shining down, we had the women’s team training on one pitch, the under 16s on another as well as pre-academy fixtures, and our first-team coach training the academy goalkeepers – it was brilliant to see so much going on.

A year ago to the day we were moving the equipment out of the the old training ground and our new home was just a field.

We may have only moved 200 yards, but we have come a million miles at the same time.
