....better things after an atrocious year.
The misfortune of others spared them relegation at the end of last season, but this term has been even worse with a points deduction, financial misery, boardroom battles, a transfer embargo and almost certain relegation casting a dark shadow over the Greene King Stadium.
Despite all that, manager Heggs says he is optimistic and others have to be also even if it is seemingly via blind faith.
He said: “You’ve got to believe things will get better next year. If you go in with the attitude that things will be just as tough in 2013 as they were this year then you’ll only be disappointed.”
Heggs insists he will do all he can to brighten the mood at the club having taken over from Dean Thomas earlier in the season.
“I’ll take my team forward with me. I never look back as I can’t affect what has gone before.
“Whatever has happened is in the past. I’m a positive person.
“I’ve never walked away from any challenge. I’ve been in football for 25 years and I’ve never quit.
“No matter what happens Hinckley United will always put out a committed and organised team while I’m the manager,” he said.
