BRITANNIA UNITED assistant manager Michael Johnson heaped praise on his side after they made history and won four trophies this season.

The SLN Aylesbury Premier Division team’s trophy glut saw them win the Berks & Bucks Intermediate Cup, Vale of Aylesbury Challenge Cup, Premier Division Winners and Tony Higginson Challenge Cup Winners.

Despite practically sweeping all before them, Johnson has immediately set his sights on breaking further records.

“We want to become the first side to retain the county cup. This season we became the first side from Aylesbury to win it since 1983.

“It is just such a special cup. To retain it would be amazing.

“We’re also entering the Sunday FA Cup and we would like to reach the latter stages.”

In a season of so many highlights picking one one moment proved difficult for Johnson but the importance of the County Cup final win still lingers in the mind.

“It was just a great day. Everyone from the goalkeeper right through to the strikers played out of their skin. We couldn’t have asked any more of them.”

With the club’s end of season awards yet to be handed out, Johnson was quick to reserve special praise for the the efforts of centre-half Musa Shcmidt.

“If I had to pick one it would be Musa. He has really put his body on the line for us this season. He’s played all season with an injury.”

Britannia have not been short of goals this season. Johnson picked out Daniel Parson’s ‘excellent run and finish’ as his goal of the season in the 8-0 County Cup quarter-final win over Old Windsor.
