Despite the problems of the last 2 seasons, I think we can be rightly proud of our achievement of maintaining football league status.

Highlights -

1. Beating Wolves 2-1 at home
2. Beating AFCW 5-2 away
3. Beating Preston 2-1 away
4. Beating Sheffield United 2-0 away
5. Beating Bradford 2-1 away
6. Beating Accrington to secure promotion to L1 at the first attempt.

Lowlights -

1. Losing 4-1 at Orient on Boxing Day, 2014. An awful performance.
2. Losing 4-3 at Peterborough when leading with minutes to go.

Also during that time, good performances in the Cup competitions even when losing. The highlight there being the 1-0 win at Hull. Arguably our best performance in those 5 seasons.

As to the future, much will depend on how the squad looks in 3 months, and how Drummy gets them playing in pre-season friendlies.

On balance though I'm more optimistic than pessimistic at the moment as the current season peters out, and I look forward to our 6th season in the Football League.

Lowlights - quite simply, the last two seasons, and the appointment of Gregory

Best away ground visited, apart from Old Trafford has to be Hull City, a wonderful day out

Highlight for me is getting Crawley Town Football Club (and the town generally) on the map.

Lowlight is the fact that League football has not yet caught on in Crawley and it has been an uphill battle by the club to get bums on seats.

Low without doubt is way previous ownership carved up Evans success and allowed better players to go and stupid managerial appointments and our lowest status as of now.

Bournemouth at home (was it 3-0) was pretty special... Shame it was them and not us that used it as a launch pad though!

One highlight for me, although we lost, was seeing us live on Sky away to Wolves in a bar in Majorca.
Fantastic seeing the game advertised in all the bars during the day.
Who would have thought it all those years ago in the Beazer Homes League.

Does anyone have a list of all our televised games, including the Conference?

Highlight - camaraderie amongst the away group and sharing experiences with other fans, like at Wolves ......

Lowlight - Not being on the terrace with Armchair Crying or Very sad

If you've loved every minute of the last seven games, there's something wrong with you.

Quite enjoyable being in the league proper, however on reflection prefered the non league stuff. Don't want to return though!

Lowlights were definitely the Peterborough and Coventry losses, from positions where we should have gained victories and stayed in League 1.
