It was a dead rubber as the National League South’s bottom side, Dover Athletic, hosted the champions, that’s Yeovil Town, if you didn’t know! And the Glovers signed off the season in style with a 3-1 win at Crabble.

Dave was there to bring the curtain down on the campaign.

Farewell National League South: That’s all, folks! The National League South season is done and we wrapped it up nicely with a bow on it. For a game that meant nothing in terms of league positions to either side it was competitive in flashes with long periods of passing practice in between those flashes for the visiting champions. All respect to Dover, they have a lovely set-up at Crabble (no ‘the’ remember?) and I have no doubt they will be back up the pyramid again soon.

Dylan Morgan could be a gem: If there’s one thing you can draw from yesterday it was that there could be a very handy player growing in Dylan Morgan. Yes, he was playing against a team which had been relegated three weeks previous, but the precision with which he finished his chances yesterday show he could be quite a goal-scoring midfield player. In the same way Jake Wannell has gone from a shaky start to life at Yeovil to a defensive colossus (he’s the Somerset Cannavaro), with the right coaching and no doubt a bit of luck, Morgan could do the same.

Was that goodbye from a few?: It was good to see some players we have not seen much of lately getting a good run out. Josh Owers got the full match, Jake Hyde got half-an-hour and both looked like they were enjoying being out there again. As we discussed on the last podcast, there was a definite feeling that this could have been farewell from a few. Alex Fisher’s wave to the travelling fans looked like goodbye. If I’m not just reading too much in to that, the man will bow out as a true hero – got us over the line and a thoroughly good chap.

This is how I always want to remember Alex Fisher.

An important summer: As Mark Cooper says, now it’s time to see what we are really made of. On the face of it the National League Premier is wide open, as he describes it, but every club in it will be thinking the same thing. What we decide to do this summer will be important, we’ve had a undoubtedly impressive budget on the playing side this season, and that will probably equate to something more middling at a higher level. You get the sense Cooper knows what he wants to do and it’s really down to the economic realities, but I am hopeful we can be competitive next season.

The Crabble burger was everything I remember: Now we are on to the real important stuff, but the Crabble burger was everything I remember it being. And at £4.80, it was a bargain as well. Maybe it could have done with the cheese slices melting for a little longer – but I’ll take it. If you got one, I trust you enjoyed it too.

Somerset Cannovaro… that made me smile… high praise indeed. The other Centre-Back Morgan Williams glides around like a Mercedes. He’s like the Yeovil Rio Ferdinand.

Cooper, if he stays???, must keep Fisher. I have said this before, he works hard making good runs not always seen by our dynamic midfield, and in the box (note to Nouble) he can finish. He should also keep Lo-Everton, as for the rest of midfield bye, bye and that includes “Worthy” sorry but, allegedly, his number of cards could be crucial.

Errr, and replace with??? That’s a harsh statement to throw at a midfield who have bossed the majority of games. Yeah, I know one is an acquired taste and generally taped together most games, one gets a yellow or two too many, one goes missing from.time to.time, and one found minutes harder to come by. But I would defy anyone to find a harder working four in non league. Add to that they are all now seasoned pros/confident and three know what both ends of the league table feels like. Keep ’em all and if they get found out, MC will move ’em on soon enough.

I can only see 4 conclusions there. If there’s a 5th I’d love to read it as Glovercast has had to be my eyes and ears this season- for which HUUUUGE thanks!

You not counting the burger as a conclusion, Jem?
