March for the Shaymen has been a great month for Jaime Fullarton’s side picking up 11 out of 18 points. March started off with a winner from a surprising source from midfielder James Ferry. Then Ferry scored once again in the 3-0 home win against Barnet before his loan spell ended and returned to Stevenage. The only low point was the 2-1 defeat to Dover Athletic in the middle of March.
