Any way, do you fancy your chances of a quick return to the Premier Division? What's your new squad looking like?
To be honest I don't think it will be a quick return. The squad needed a much bigger overhaul than it's had and I've not seen the new additions yet as we haven't played any friendlies.
Btw, I thought you had a great season last year and thoroughly deserved your 8th place, although it pains me to say so! Obviously I'm now hoping you suffer from second season syndrome.
Yes, we're well aware of "second season syndrome". It wasn't just the Scholars that fell to it, last season. Don't forget that Mickleover, who went up with you, also went down with you. Perhaps surprisingly, given the close rivalry, there wasn't unbridled joy at Rushall at Chasetown's relegation. We will greatly miss the local rivalry. Most of any hostility from Rushall was directed at your diminutive former manager!
