"I'm very disappointed, as much as the supporters are," said Laws after the match.

"We've had a fantastic season, except for the last five games and that's where we've let ourselves down.

"The players were fantastic today, they really went for it. We could not ask for more effort from them today."

Laws however thinks that despite the setback of this season the future is still bright for the club.

"The players that are coming through, it's a magnificent achievement from the clubs point of view that we've bled nine players into the first team.

"We have got a good squad building up, it just needs refining a little bit."

As for the players that are out of contract in the summer, Laws reckons that he wants to keep players like Alex Calvo-Garcia and Andy Dawson at the club.

He said that the club have not discussed contract offers yet, apart from the well publicised cases with Dawson and Garcia, but conceded that it may not be too easy to keep them at the club.

"It may be difficult," he said, "we've got some good players here who could step up further.

"Andy Dawson immediately springs to mind."

"Alex has been spoken to on many occasions, by myself and the chairman," said Lawsy.

"The club needs Alex round, because he works hard, is a great ambassador and works hard for the football club.

"We'll be sitting him down, i'll be bvery very surprised if Alex Garcia is not here next season."

We believe that Lawsy's final comments deserve to be put in bold.

"It's not a disappointing season, it's a disappointing end to the season."
