No-one did the double over us this season

Last updated : 29 April 2002 By Luke Thornhill
The fact no-one in the league managed to beat us twice only serves to show our inconsistency - no-one in the division was massively better than us yet we still missed out even on the playoffs.

Top scorer
This is borne out also by the amount of teams we completed the double over - three.

York City, Oxford United and the mudrats from the North Bank were the only sides we managed to take three points from both home and away.

Our 7-1 victory over Darlington was all set to be the biggest third division win of the season, and the highest scoring game, until Hartlepool beat Swansea City by the same scoreline as they snuck past us into the playoffs.

Martin Carruthers tops our scoring charts, despite a lengthy injury towards the end of the season. Andrew Dawson was surprisingly our most booked player, with the yellow card flashed in his general direction eleven times.

Steve Torpey was our only player to be sent off, after stamping on a player at Leyton Orient.

As the season ended, the form table shows Hull City as the worst team in the division. Little consolation for Halifax Town, but of course we always knew the mudrats were shite didn't we? They finished the season by playing ten games, failing to win any of them. Shame.
