They were too good to go down and merely relegated because the nasty chairman wouldn't pay them, so with the season go, let's look at each player and how they've done since obviously going off to better things as they were so good...

1. Steve Mildenhall - Millwall, appearances 0, enjoying picking splinters out your back side Steve?
2. Simon Francis - Charlton, started strong before fading mid/late season, appearances 31
4. Jean-Francois Christophe - Compiegne, well done son you made to the top of the non league pyramid in France via one appearance for Oldham. Your mum must be so proud... Appearances 3.
6. Adam Barrett - Crystal Palace (7 apps), found out in the Championship for being a bit crap, moved into league 1 on loan with Orient (14 apps)
7. Anthony Grant - Southend (41 apps) delightful first half of the season, lukewarm 2nd half, scored some screamers, probably too good for L2.
8. Alan McCormack - Charlton (21 apps), how the hell did he end up with 21 appearances this season? From what I've heard he's been gash, oh hold on, didn't CAFC finish bottom half eventually? **** the bed, he scored as well?
9. Matt Paterson - Southend (a few appearances, 4 goals) didn't play many games, got bombed out on loan to Stockport (10 apps, 3 goals) where he was said to be a talisman in an otherwise god awful season. Coming back this summer to SUFC unless we can get shot. Expect a Richie Foran season for him next term if he doesn't get out.
12. Damian Scanell - Dag & Red (15 apps) relegated on Saturday, maybe should've stayed and competed with Louis Soares for the "worst winger at SUFC" contest...
14. MOOOOOOOOSE - Leicester (8 apps) obviously not quite ready to fit into sexy Sven's first team plans but has been a bit of a shining light at Doncaster (12 apps) where although they went on a horrific run still scored 2 goals and got some good mentions, shame he whipped the hair off though.
15. Osei Sankofa - Farnborough (21 apps) found his level then... 2 divisions below league football. Conference South final to look forward to soon.
18. Johnny Herd - Southend (5 apps) Oh Johnny, your "specialist long throw" being your only strong point has gone from being talk of the town to whisper of the village... Have fun playing for Chelmsford or Canvey next season.
22. Stuart O'Keefe - Crystal Palace - (4 apps) Maybe a season in L2 would've done you a bit of benefit now with the benefit of a bit of hindsight eh Stewie? How long till you're bombed out on a free transfer and end up at Woking?
26. Francis Laurent - Northampton (6 apps) via Compiegne (3 apps) - Pitched up with his mate playing at the highest level of semi pro football in France wasn't enough for Franny so he bust out to Northampton where he's set the world alight getting involved in a relegation scrap and generally doing about enough to get on the ferry back to Jean-Francois who will be waiting with open arms waiting for Chelsea to finally realise his premiership dream and will take him with him.
28. Scott Spencer - Lincoln (8 apps) via Southend (some appearances, couldn't care). Missed a sitter from 10 yards against us and can look forward to either the dole queue or conference football next season. **** you Scott, who's the idiot now? I'm sure Paul Sturrock is ruing you not being here now.

Manager Steve Tilson - Relegated to the Conference thanks in part to inheriting some diabolical players from Chris Sutton, however, deserves a nod thanks to his amazing ability to yet again steer a team to being within a sniff of the play offs before blowing it all and dropping like a stone to be second from bottom.

Well done chaps.
