Bradford Town 1 Weston St John's 0SAINTS travelled to Wiltshire for their last game of the season with just 11 players, including co-manager Dave Wilcox, who returned after breaking an ankle earlier in the season.The side also included three players with little or no experience of Western League football. However, the players displayed great heart and resilience against a side that a full-strength Saints squad would have easily beaten, but lost to a second-half goal."I would like to thank the players who made the trip and I thought they deserved to get something from the game, due to their commitment," commented chairman Kevin Evans.The season ended with Saints 13th in the table on 54 points, but the club were deducted three points for an administration error and this would have given them 57 points, 11 more than last season's total.Kevin Evans has announced his resignation from St John's at the end of what has been a satisfactory season in terms of points achieved."I feel I have taken the club as far as I can and now it is time for someone else to take over the reins," he commented. "It has been our most successful season, building on last season's total of 46 points, we finished on 54, but we earned 57."In some ways it has been a challenging season, with managers either leaving or not turning up at all. However, with the help of Dave Wilcox, we decided to run the first team ourselves until the end of the season, and I don't think we did that badly."However, with Bob Flaskett leaving to take up his post with Weston Football Club, I ended up being chairman, secretary, kit man - in fact, I was running the club almost single-handedly in terms of administration and so forth. "I feel I have done by bit for the club and now it is up to someone else to carry it on, hopefully in the Western League.
