Biggleswade Town Football Club history (2010 - 2013)
This season saw the Waders climb to their highest ever position in the football pyramid, finally finishing in 4th place and with the resultant position in the playoffs. Waders travelled to 3rd place Daventry Town, a team they had previously beaten both home and away in the regular season. Football being football, Daventry ran out easy winners ending Waders hopes of promotion.
This season saw the Waders fade as season progressed. Having topped the league early in the season, injuries and suspensions took its toll and the season finished with a top half finish just outside the play offs.
The best ever season for the Waders gaining promotion to step 3 for the first time in the clubs history. At the start of the season the target was set to reach the play offs and this was achieved and the waders finished fourth one point ahead of Beaconsfield. In the first game the Waders were drawn away to Godalming and went into the match as underdogs. Jon Woolf soon settled everyone’s nerves by scoring in the 6th minute. Godalming came back into the game in the 56th minute and equalised. Throwing caution to the wind the waders went for it and Craig Daniels scored the winner in the 80th minute to give the Waders a final berth away to Rugby.
In front of a crowd of 1126 very vocal fans the waders were again underdogs and went behind in the 58th minute much to the delight of the home fans. However with the large contingent of the Waders fans now urging the team on Lee Allinson equalised through a penalty in the 64th minute – game on. The waders then raised their game and a magnificent strike by Paul Barnes on 86 minutes send the 200 plus waders fans wild. Barny struck again two minutes later to seal the well-deserved victory and promotion to step 3 for the first time in the clubs long history.
