Season 2009-10

For the 2009-10 season a number of new players were signed, including Craig Farrell, Max Porter, Aaron O’Connor and Jamie Stuart, but long servants Chris Hope and Andy Burgess departed before the season started.

After keeping a stable squad for all of the 2009-10 season, Justin Edinburgh led the team to fourth position in the league, including a memorable victory over champions Stevenage Borough, a record 8-0 home victory over Gateshead and a 3-0 away victory over local rivals Kettering Town, With only two league defeats from the start of the year 2010, the club clinched a place in the post-season playoffs for the first time, but they lost over two legs to Oxford United in the semi-final.

The game at Mansfield Town on 13th April 2010 was the 1000th in the Diamonds History.
