Slough Town’s joint manager is keeping things in perspective after his side fell just short last night.

The Rebels lost 1-0 at Leamington in Wednesday evening’s semi final. The home side were worth the win and go on to Monday’s final where they will meet Hitchin Town.

Slough’s Neil Baker was disappointed with the performance at the Windmill Ground but says the season the club has enjoyed will make the heartache that much easier to get over.

This is the club’s first season back in the town and they have managed to challenge for promotion in front of big crowds at their new Arbour Park home, which will see all sides completed next season.

Baker said: “I think Leamington deserved the win on the night and maybe we didn’t quite turn up.

“We came very close to an equaliser with the last kick but it wasn’t to be. It was an unbelievable save from their goalkeeper.

“We’ll sit back and take stock now of what we have done this season and start preparing for our fifth years as Slough managers in a completely finished new stadium.”
