Payne; "We will be all out to go one better next time"

Thursday, April 29 2010

Hitchin manager Colin Payne has put aside the huge disappointment of missing out on promotion and promised that his side will be doubly determined to go up in 2010-11.

“We are all absolutely distraught at losing to Slough, especially after amassing 100 points for the season, but we have to get over it and prove we can clinch promotion by winning the title next year,” he said.

“There’s no doubt 100 points would be enough to win any title normally – we really could not have done much more than we did and that is down to our players. I cannot speak highly enough of our squad, they performed consistently throughout the season and to lose just four games was outstanding. They have been fantastic and I want to publicly thank each and every one.”

Payne had to console his side after the heartbreak of losing to Slough. “We were all upset and we know we went so close this time. We began pre-season earlier than most – in June – and we’ve been working hard since then – to see our hard work go up in smoke was very distressing.”

Payne was also disappointed for the fans. “We have had unprecedented support from everyone at the club and this has gathered momentum as the season went on. I will say this – our fans are the best and we have scarcely heard a word of criticism, they have encouraged us from the very first game. We desperately want to win promotion for them in 2010-11.”

Since losing out, Payne has had countless messages of commiseration from people in the game. “A lot of people cannot believe we failed to go up with 100 points. The play-offs can be cruel and we have found that out to our cost, but they are there and we knew that from day one.  Charlie and I will be doing our utmost to ensure we are strong enough to go one better next April.”
