ANDREW HOLDSWORTH might have had to delay his holiday by a fortnight.
But with the prospect of a place back in Division II packed in his mental suitcase, the Greece-bound full-back is hardly complaining.
Monday's dramatic play-off showdown against Mansfield marked the end of a truly memorable season for one of Town's bright young prospects.
"I watched us get relegated 12 months ago, then we all worried about whether the club would still be around for Division III," said the 20-year-old.
"It was wonderful feeling to go to Cardiff and win in front of so many of our fans.
"We always seem to do things the hard way, and we all missed a few weeks' holiday, but it's all been worth it
"I can't describe the feeling in the dressing room afterwards. It was just incredible.
"We all work hard together and we're all in it together. I haven't been in football long, but I can't imagine there's a more solid unit anywhere.
"We'll go our separate ways for a few weeks, but then we'll be back for pre-season and we'll work harder than ever to do well in Division II.
"For the young players like myself, Anthony Lloyd, John McAliskey and Dave Mirfin, this has been an incredible learning experience.
"We've also got more young lads coming through from the Academy ranks - look out for John McCombe, who will be a great centre-half in the Nathan Clarke mould - so the future is looking bright."
Rugged defender Mirfin has dedicated Monday's win to Town's travelling army of fans.
"They could easily have turned against us after the setback of missing out on automatic promotion, but over the three play-off games, they were unbelievable," said the 19-year-old. "To see so much of the crowd decked out in blue and white gave us a massive lift and I'm so pleased. Victory was for them."
