Over the next couple of weeks, we will be speaking to the unsung heroes behind the scenes at AFC Fylde to find out their highlights of the season, both on and off the pitch.
Name: Mick Baldwin
Title: Kitman (formerly a player, manager, committee member, linesman and treasurer)
My moment of the season was…
The two FA Cup games against Wigan Athletic rank very highly, but I’d say my personnel highlight was half-time against Tranmere Rovers at Mill Farm on New Year’s Day.
We were leading 3-0 and I think that’s when other clubs started to sit up and take notice of us.
Chally was understandably chuffed at half-time, but in typical Chally style, he wanted more after the break. We went on to win 5-2 and bounced back from the defeat a Tranmere just a few days previously.
My proudest moment was…
I’d say I have two. Reaching 50 points was a massive moment for us. We had gone from 19th place in the table on Boxing Day and potentially battling relegation to feeling far more secure in the division.
Another has to be the final day of the season. Getting a point against Wrexham sealed our place in the play-offs – something we never really dreamt of at the start of the season.
I’m looking forward to…
Promotion! We have nothing to fear and proved that we can compete with the very best at this level. I’m sure Chally will put together another squad to challenge for promotion and I wouldn’t rule out winning the title outright!
