The players, coaches and staff are all travelling to the party town for three nights from next Thursday for a trip the players have been saving for themselves.

It will bring to an end the celebrations since the club lifted the Ryman Premier trophy on April 25.

"The lads have been putting money aside from their wages for four months and the whole squad is going," said manager Paul Doswell.

"It might get very messy so the management and staff are staying in a different hotel to the players and good luck to them.

"They have deserved this and they put all the money in themselves and decided they wanted to do this rather than have a Christmas party this year."

While other managers have been putting their feet up since the end of the season, Doswell has been as busy as ever.

"There's been no break for me yet," he said.

"We have got to get players back on contract and tell the players we are not keeping and try to get hold of some we want to come to us.

"It is not until the end of May that things tend to die down and I like to have the whole of June off if I can.

"We have made decisions already on who to offer contracts to and who not to but we are going to wait until we get back from Marbella to announce that."

Two players certain to be staying are striker Craig Dundas and goalkeeper Kevin Scriven, who swept the board at Saturday's annual awards night.

Dundas picked up player of the year and players' player of the year, while Scriven was voted player of the year by sponsors A-Plant and also supporters' player of the year.

"I think that was the right call," said Doswell.

"They both deserved something and it was very much a team effort, everyone contributed.

"We won the league because the whole squad has been playing to their potential, we haven't had anyone who has not performed.

"But those two in particular have been outstanding."
