CHARLIE Duncan was delighted with the performance – and at registering a winning end to the season.
But while the players can put their feet up, he is already looking towards the next campaign, with an eye on building on the strong new generation of young players.
"It's the way forward," he said. "We have some good youngsters here and we need to look at bringing on some local boys. I am hoping Stewart Neilson gets involved with us at the school end at Banff Academy, to see what we can do with youngsters at the schools."
Duncan resisted going overboard about the win at Keith. "We played OK. We had a lot of young players, and they are good at going forward, and although we let slip the two-goal lead I was never really worried that we couldn't take the points," he added.
"It's always good to finish the season with a win."
The manager acknowledged the part played by midfielder Chris Blackhall, a real rising star, who cracked home the opening goal after having a rocket effort brilliantly saved just a minute before. He showed real class throughout.
And Scott Fraser wasn't just a rock at the back, more like a cliff-face.
