Reaction: May on Cambridge United

Alfie May ended one of the best personal seasons of his career with a brace in Saturday's 2-2 final day draw at Cambridge United.

His 2021/22 campaign ended with 26 goals to his name in all competitions and as third in the overall top goal scorers list in League One.

By finding the net against the U's at the Abbey Stadium he also equalled the 23 goals scored by Mo Eisa in one single Football League season during the 2017/18 campaign.

"It was important to end on a high. We knew Cambridge's quality," he said.

"We know we probably haven't been great in the last three stepping into this game so we knew what we had to do and we wanted to send the great support that turned up today home with something."

May is already tied down for next season having signed a two-and-a-half year contract in January, and although the 2022/23 campaign is sure to be even tougher, he feels that making progress is the only way forward to match the ethos that has been around the club over the past few seasons.

"We are going to see a lot of new faces and it is important that the lads that are still here to get them to really gel and to come on board," he added.

"The gaffer has so many ambitions and he works so well with us all. He heads one way, he wants to go forward, and we have to be on board.

"If you are not then there's no point playing for Cheltenham Town because the way we work we're a good group.

"It's sad to see the old faces go and the loans but it's football. We go again and we go next year."
