Daventry Town boss Darran Foster says he is proud of his squad, whether they win promotion in the next few days or not.

Town play their final Calor Southern League Division One Central match of the season against Chalfont St Peter at Communications Park on Saturday.

They are third in the table, and need to win and hope that Dunstable and Rugby both drop points if they are to win the title and automatic promotion.

If that doesn’t happen, then it is the promotion play-offs for the Purple Army, with the one-off semi-final being played next Tuesday.

Not winning the title would obviously be a major disappointment for a club that has been in such a great position for the whole season, as would failing to win the play-offs.

But whatever happens, Foster is beaming with pride about a set of players that also reached the first round of the FA Cup earlier in the campaign, losing 2-0 at Sky Bet League Two title chasers Chesterfield on a memorable afternoon.

And Foster said: “I am proud of my lads for their superb efforts over the course of this season, and that will never change.

“They still have a very good chance of promotion, even if we have to do it the hard way.

“They have done so much and brought so much to the town of Daventry this season, and I know my players will give every last drop of energy to achieve our goal.”

Meanwhile, Daventry captain Liam Dolman has been named the supporters’ player of the year for the 2013/14 season.
