Season 2007-08

The 2007/08 season turned out to be a season of consolidation, with the Garry Hill’s side maintaining a mid-table position throughout the season, finishing in 16th place. Players departing included Wayne Hatswell and Simeon Jackson, with the latter moving to the League One level with Gillingham.

After an initial difficulty in finding the net at Nene Park the fans were treated to two successive 5-0 victories – the televised game with Oxford United followed a victory over Solihull Moors in the FA Cup. The cup form continued with victory over league two Macclesfield Town, but the run ended at the Memorial Stadium in Bristol, with Rovers making the best of difficult conditions.

A further highlight of the season was a run to the final of the Setanta Shield, and although beaten on penalties, the 3-3 draw at Aldershot will be long remembered by those that witnessed it live or on TV.

The season ended with the Diamonds lifting the NFA Hillier Cup with a 2-1 victory over Brackley Town.
