LEE FOWLER secured a place in Town history with the final kick of last season, but he is determined to look forward rather than back over the next 10 months.
The midfielder's promotion-clinching shoot-out winner against Mansfield at the Millennium Stadium in his home city of Cardiff was a moment he and 23,000 Town fans will never forget.
It earned Peter Jackson's side their chance in Coca-Cola League I and, for the player himself, illustrated the joy and rewards that football can bring.
So the Welsh battler has stopped drinking beer, implemented a healthier diet and has returned to Huddersfield with a fresh focus on a career which looked to be going off the rails at Coventry.
"I put on a lot of weight last season and it was affecting my game," said Fowler, who still has a season to play for Wales Under 21s.
"Looking back, I don't think I was really fit enough to be playing and that contributed to the amount of bookings I got for stupid challenges.
"Having finished the season on such a high, I sat down with my mum (Alison) and girlfriend (Lucy) and we decided I had to get my body in shape for the new season.
"When I was out injured last season I got a bit down. I was having a drink and eating junk food. None of it did me any good.
"So I cut out the drinking completely, cut out the chocolate and the crisps and stopped putting rubbish into my body.
"Barring an odd glass of wine, I stuck to the regime on holiday and I came back feeling great and ready to give it 100% once again.
"I know this is a big season for me and for the club, because we want to keep things moving forward.
"If I look after myself off the pitch then hopefully we will see the best of me on it - and I want to play as many games as I possibly can."
Fowler has been frustrated by a knee niggle in the past couple of weeks but, if he ever needs cheering up, he can always put on the video recording for a re-run of the play-off finale.
"But this is a new season and we have to start again, but it was brilliant to score the goal which took us up," he said.
"In the week after the final I must have replayed it a thousand times,.
"When I do think about it I wonder what it would have been like if I'd missed - but fortunately I didn't.
"I wasn't nervous at the time apart from just a second, when Steve Yates told me that if I scored it was the winning penalty.
"I hadn't really realised until then, but I didn't think about the pressure and just stuck to what I had to do.
"Coming back to Huddersfield on the bus is something I'll never forget. The atmosphere was just incredible and it will live with me for as long as the penalty - for the rest of my life.
"It was especially good for my mum and dad and my family with them living in Wales, and it's something we will always look back on as a fantastic occasion."
Fowler's parents run the Tynewyddn pub (New House) in Barry and have his medal and shirt as mementoes.
"Now I have to focus on this season and the targets I've set.
"Consistency is the big thing. I want to stay fit, cut down on the stupid bookings and play as many games as possible.
"I think we can push for promotion again and if I can get a few goals then that will be great. I haven't scored a League goal for the first team which, considering I used to get quite a few in youth and reserve football, is quite strange."
Fowler is also looking forward to a possible international clash with his best mate.
"It would be great to play against Steady in the Under 21s," said Fowler, who went on holiday in to St Lucia with the Blackburn Rovers striker.
"From my first day at the McAlpine we just hit it off and I sometimes speak to him more than I speak to my girlfriend!
"Wales will be playing England in the qualifiers in October.
"I think the gaffer and Taff have had a word with Wales because, in the past, I haven't enjoyed the international scene.
"The Under 21s haven't been run that well in my opinion, but it seems there is going to be a more professional approach this time and that augurs well."
