Shrewsbury Town captain Luke Leahy spoke to the press after the 1-0 defeat to Lincoln City on the last day of the 2022/23 season.
Leahy came close to breaking the deadlock in the eighth minute when, from around 10 yards out, he took a touch before unleashing a powerful strike that took a slight deflection before smashing the post.
Lincoln found the decisive goal in the 73rd minute when Matty Virtue converted from inside the box following a long throw.
The Salop skipper spoke on his thoughts on the game, Chey Dunkley's red card incident, Marko Marosi's influence, finishing in League One's top half and his commitment to Shrewsbury Town.
ON DESERVING MORE FROM THE GAME:
"Yeah, especially in the first half - it was one of the best games we have played as a team. We were aggressive and relentless in our press, and we had a few chances.
"If you don't take your chances in those types of games, then there is always a chance for them to grab a goal and win like the 1-0 result.
"We are disappointed about that (1-0 defeat) we should have been at least one or two up at half-time, but like I said, if you do not take your chances, you are liable for them to go on and score, so I'm bitterly disappointed about that but looking back as a whole its been an encouraging season."
ON CHEY DUNKLEY'S RED CARD:
"It's a red card for Chey, but we are not thinking about that. He has been there for us every inch of every blade of grass this season he has been unbelievable and some signing.
"It's a credit to him as he's played every league game this season, but we won't think too much about that (red card), so you do not have to worry!"
ON MARKO MAROSI SAVING THE RESULTING PENALTY:
"What a save that was because there was a lot of time to think. As a penalty taker, you have a lot of time to think about where you are going, but especially as a goalkeeper, he probably changed his mind a couple of times, but he went the right way.
"To even go the right way and to parry it out for a corner, it was a great save, and I'm pleased for him as well as he does a lot for us and keeps us in games at times and he certainly kept us in that one with a couple of minutes to go."
ON FINISHING IN THE TOP HALF:
"Before the game we had our eyes on 10th, and I don't know how the other results went, and I'm not sure with the Charlton v Cheltenham game.
"But top half finish for this football club just shows you the progress we are making, and it's my second season. In my first season we finished 18th, so this year a 12th place finish is progress as a club, and I would like to think we can finish stronger next year."
ON THE TOGETHERNESS BETWEEN THE SQUAD AND THE SUPPORTERS:
"We got beat 1-0 today, but that feeling after the game going over to them and clapping and giving our shirts, everyone is together in that dressing room there, everyone is together for each other.
"We will fight for each other, we will fight for the man next to us and we will fight for the gaffer. It showed after the game (when) everyone applauded the fans, and I think fans notice that we are fighting for each other.
"Disappointed to go home and lose that one today, but there is a bigger picture and that team is together."
ON PLAYING EVERY LEAGUE GAME THIS SEASON:
"I always set myself out at the start of the season to play every game possible.
"Thankfully (I've had) no suspensions this season as well, so over the moon to play every game.
"I think that as a footballer winning leagues and winning games is the main thing, but to play every game is special, and it's one I'll look back on and be very proud of."
ON HIS CONTRACT SITUATION:
"I have got an option. It's in the club's favour.
"A lot is going on at the football club at the minute that everyone is unsure of. I am yet to hear anything, so we will see I think there is a lot more stuff that they need to sort before me, I think.
"You can tell by the way I play, by the way I celebrate and by the way I engage with the fans that I love it here, as we all do.
"The gaffer has brought in some signings. The loan signings don't feel like loans this season as you can always tell the difference between loan signings and permanents, and they have been all in this season like everyone, and that's a credit to the gaffer, Keith (Burt) and ourselves as we have given everything this season."
ON FINISHING THE SEASON:
"I will enjoy the next couple of days but I will probably be itching to get back to it in a couple of weeks.
"It doesn't matter how old I get, my body starts to hurt when I am not running around a football pitch!
"I have enjoyed this season; it has been fantastic, but hopefully everything can get sorted."
