I still think that promotion in 2014 was under rated not least because Wilcox had to pick up Laws’ mess and cope with a huge number of new signings. Yes he had some good players and in Winnall we had a really reliable goalscorer but we had 14 players in and 10 players out that season, coming on the back of a terrible relegation season. It was a big achievement to get us up, no matter how it was done.

But it set a pattern for just continuously signing more players. How many youth team prospects have become first teamers in Swann’s time? Adelakun, you could argue, though he came through before Swann I think. Anyone else I’m missing? There must be someone!
