SHRIMPS’ midfielder Alex Kenyon is looking forward to a proper night’s sleep after helping the club secure their Football League status.
The popular 25-year-old had been through relegation once before in his career with Stockport and said he did not want to go through the same pain again.
“That time at Stockport when we got relegated was absolutely disgusting,” he said.
“It wasn’t nice at all but Saturday’s draw was the complete opposite of that.
“To be honest though, I haven’t been sleeping properly the last couple of weeks with what’s been happening to us.
“It’s not just me either because I know Barry Roche has been the same.
“There have been times when I’ve woken up in the middle of the night and then you’re trying to get back to sleep but it’s difficult.
“When I came on, I knew Barnet were 2-0 up.
“I knew that, if I was playing, I wouldn’t want to know so we didn’t let the lads on the pitch know and we kept it to ourselves.
“As I came on, a couple of the lads asked how it was going at Barnet and – if I’m honest – I might have lied a little bit but that was to keep everyone calm.
“Then they realised I was lying but, thankfully, we managed to get ourselves over the line and get the point we needed in the end.”
