Charlotte Looks Back On A Dramatic Final Day

8 May 2019

The final game of the season certainly came around quickly and despite all the ups and downs I couldn't help feeling a little bit said that it was all over.
Cambridge stood between us and EFL safety and we only needed a point to make sure that we are in League Two next season.
There were no changes to the team that beat Port Vale last weekend so I really thought that it would be a great day.
It was amazing to see so many Macc supporters in the ground - it really gave everyone a lift before the players came out.
Both teams had some good chances in the first half, but when Paul Lewis scored in front of the Star Lane End it was heartbreaking.
It wasn't long after that the half-time whistle was blown and I think that it came at a good time because Sol could really get the players going after going a goal down.
Just after the second half kicked off, we all learnt that Notts County had taken the lead at Swindon and that meant that Macc had slipped into the relegation places.
At first I started to feel sick, but everyone in the ground started to increase the noise and really get behind the team to score the goal we desperately needed.
Not too long later Elliott Durrell broke free and hammered the ball into the net and we all cheered as if we had won the league!
Then news came in that Swindon had equalised and then taken the lead - so by that time I knew that we were safe.

The scenes at the end were a special as those at Eastleigh just 12 months ago!

I hope to see you all next season when we will continue to defy all the odds together once again
