Manager takes positives after difficult end to the season
Sunday's 4-0 defeat Doncaster Rovers, a result that secured Donny's promotion to League 1, brought to a close a tricky final period to a campaign that had started so promisingly.
However manager Dan reflected on the positives of a tough year, saying: "We had a great start to the season and a difficult finish, but now we have got some foundations laid.
Speaking about Sunday's game, in which goals from Beth England, Hope Knight and Sue Smith (2) secured a win for Donny but still saw Reading pip them for the title on goal difference, Dan added: "We had numerous counter attacks and entries into the final third, but we just didn't kill them off with a killer pass or the right run.
"I thought the game was a lot tighter than 4-0 and that we gave them a good test.
"We knew Doncaster were going to have a lot of the ball and a lot of territory but, to a player in the first 41 minutes, we have done our jobs.
"It was the first time we had let an uncontested cross come in, and in fairness, it was a fantastic header from Beth England."
