BRAINTREE Town's end of season statistics perhaps highlight the realistic ups and downs during the campaign, writes DAVID WARD.

The Iron chalked up just 14 wins (30 per cent) from 46 National League South fixtures plus all cup-ties while having lost 20 games (44 per cent) with just 12 games (26 per cent) drawn.

Thankfully the Iron retained their place in the league at this level.

But the season-long lack of a proven goalscorer also shows up in the statistics, with just 49 scored (an average of 1.1 per game) in all matches.

The total number of goals conceded was 61, an average of 1.3 per game.

In National League South, the Iron won just 11 games, lost 17 and drew 12 whilst scoring 38 goals and conceding 54.

Braintree and Witham Times:

During the whole season, the Iron had 57 players featured on the teamsheet with the average age of players being 24 years, four months and six players featured in more than 40 times, nine players more than 30 times and 12 players more than 20 times.

These statistics, efficiently registered by club secretary Matt Hawtin, show that the club also had six loan players on the books at times during the campaign with just two not being featuring on the team sheet.

A total of 124 substitutions were made during all games in the season while another 105 were unused substitutes, during the same period.

The player with the highest number of appearances in the team in the campaign was central defender Luke Pennell with 43.

The one club award during the season was the league's manager of the month award in February to Iron boss Ryan Maxwell, who parted company with the club by mutual consent on Tuesday.
