THE Scholars did "superbly well" to beat runners-up AFC Sudbury away, according to boss Steve Browne.

In their final game of the season, the Parkfield club recorded one of their most impressive wins of the campaign.

Browne said: "We passed the ball well, looked like we could score at will and it should have been more than 1-0.

"It was pleasing to come here (Sudbury) and win against to a team that's in the play-offs. I thought we did superbly well.

"We played a lot of good stuff and it was encouraging.

"I've never been so up and down on the line this season.

"When they play the way they played today (Saturday), it excites me.

"I know the way they can play, it's just doing it consistently and that's been the biggest problem for us."

Boss Browne was full of praise for his team after the away success.

He said: "Serge (Makofo) was running at people and was a real livewire.

"The back five including Ashlee (Jones) were superb, in midfield I don't think we gave anything away, so it would be hard really to pick out any one player, it was all about the whole side."

Bar finished the 2007/08 league term in 17th position in the Ryman Division One North League table.

After a tough first year in charge of the club, Browne steered Potters Bar clear of relegation and believes the future looks bright for his side.

"I said that when I came in the aim was to stay in the league and to compete," said the manager.

"We have stayed in the league and we are going to look for a good year in the league next year.

"We have to build on that now."

In the closing stages of the season Browne has seen his team secure some impressive results.

As well as beating second-placed Sudbury, Bar also drew with champions Dartford.

Browne added: "On our day we can compete with anyone in our league.
