But whenever he did play, the former Darlington man was warmly received by Town’s fans, while he also received moral backing from team-mates, especially Alex Lawless, Stuart Fleetwood and Dean Brill.

He said: “That was a big positive for me. That kept me going through times of the season, when I was left out or when the manager said something about me in the press, which happened quite a few times.

“Their backing was fantastic and I can’t thank the fans enough for it.”
