The striker made a quick impact on his return from a calf injury as Town signed off this season with a 1-0 win at Luton last Saturday.

His 77th-minute goal, headed home from Joe Skarz’s cross just 12 minutes after he came off the bench, clinched a fourth successive victory and a final position of 10th in League I.

Now the challenge is to ensure Town finish at least eight places higher under new manager Stan Ternent next time around.

“Promotion’s what we’re all aiming for, and everything’s in place for us to give it a real good go,” said Jevons, whose goal was his 11th for Town.

“The new manager is in place and the season-ticket offer means we going to be playing in front of big home crowds.

“The manager has a great record of success and I think there’s going to be a lot of interest in what will happen squad-wise over the summer.

“Both the players and supporters are going to be looking to see who is coming in and there seems to be a bit of a buzz around the town, which is great.”

While there have been no incoming transfers so far, Ternent has already made his mark via the retained list.

With Jevons’ fellow frontman Andy Booth already tied up on a one-year deal, keeper Matt Glennon has signed two-year terms and left-back Skarz a three-year contract.

That just leaves midfielder James Berrett to sort out, with Rob Page (Chesterfield) and Danny Schofield (Yeovil) among the departing players who have already sealed moves elsewhere.

News of Page’s switch to Saltergate emerged in the wake of the win at Luton, and Jevons believes keeping a fifth clean sheet without the former Wales star was important.

“Pagey is a great defender and a popular bloke both with the players and the fans, but he’s not going to here next season,” said the 28-year-old.

“That’s the bottom line and we have to move on, and the three lads who played at centre-back (Tom Clarke came in alongside brother Nathan and David Mirfin) showed their mettle.”

So too did Jevons, who having missed nine games, looked lively from the moment he replaced the illness-hit Berrett in the 65th minute.

“Sometimes you get a different perspective from the bench, and I saw a few weaknesses I thought I could exploit,” explained the former Everton, Grimsby, Yeovil and Bristol City man.

“I managed to get about them straight away, and it was great to get the goal which sealed another win for us.

“Just coming off the bench was brilliant, so to score into the bargain made it extra special, and the whole experience gave me a great lift going into the summer.

“It was important to me to get back into the first team before the end of the season, and I knew I had a chance after coming through the reserve game the Monday before.

“I was pleased to be able to show the new manager a little of what I can do.”
