Corinium Stadium, 22nd April 2015
A 5-0 defeat wasn't the way Wootton Bassett Town wanted to end what has been a fantastic season under first year manager Paul Braithwaite. But then it was never going to be easy against all conquering champions Flackwell Heath.
The Buckinghamshire side made sure that they dropped just fifteen points across the entire season and finish the campaign with a staggering goal difference of +100.
They were well on their way to victory before half time as a pair of goals from Dan Burnell in the space of a minute - midway through the period the first a fine strike, the second a penalty - and a straight red card for Nathan Gambling left Bassett with a mountain to climb.
Dan Malloy's lob shortly after the restart put the result well and truly beyond doubt, and as Bassett counted down the remaining minutes of the season, Brandon Eaton and top scorer Gavin James completed the five goal haul for the visitors.
While a disappointing note to finish on, for Bassett, this game won't define their year, which has - on the whole - been excellent. The superb nine game unbeaten run, which this defeat brought to a halt, carried the side into an eleventh place finish that betters all others the club has achieved while playing in the Premier Division of the Hellenic League.
And achieving that while still disadvantaged by their exile from Bassett is no mean feat.
It certainly bodes well for next week with the move back home to a new ground with an exciting team hopefully still intact.
