Coach Ibrom had this to say:

" I'm very proud with what we achieved at the club this season. Their's been some fantastic highlights including taking the franchise to its highest finish in history as well as giving 17 national league debuts.

As the season wore on we were able to be more competitive which isn't easy being one of the less resourced franchises in the league.

To defeat clubs like Auckland City, Team Wellington and Eastern Suburbs is a monumental achievement.

Special thanks go to all the staff and players both on and off the pitch who have been outstanding throughout. As well as all the fans who have supported through the ups and downs. We managed to create a fantastic culture and to see the number of younger players come through and represent the franchise was very satisfying. I certainly enjoyed my time living in Nelson. I wish the club and everyone connected all the best for the future especially moving out of Covid-19 and will follow with ernest as a fan from afar. "
