Robert Connor was appointed Manager and Robert Reilly his Assistant Manager in March 2005. Results didn’t go to well for the ‘two Rabs’ as they became known amongst supporters. Season 2005/06 started with promise, however, but despite some good performances the club did not even make the newly created play off’s.
The following season began more promisingly and by Christmas 2006 the club were sitting in second spot. But a serious of bad results, brightened only but a few good cup performances, left the club in serious relegation trouble a mere six weeks later. In mid February 2007 the two Rabs were sacked by the club.
