Kee: Never had a season like this

29 April 2018

Billy Kee may be on the hunt for individual honours but he says the team prize is more important.

Striker Kee is the League Two's leading scorer with 25 league goals this season - two ahead of Cheltenham's Mohamed Eisa and Coventry's Marc McNulty.

He could have had 26 if he had tucked away a 45th minute penalty against Lincoln but Ryan Allsop saved it although Stanley still ran out 1-0 winners to clinch the League Two title yesterday.

It's all down to the final game of the season for who wins the Golden Boot - but Kee already has his prize.

"To miss a penalty and to still win, the lads were fantastic," said 27-year-old Kee. "That's what they have been like all season.

"We didn't put in a performance at Newport midweek but we bounced back and that is what we have done all season.

"Lincoln are a good team, they put a lot of balls into the box but we dealt with everything which shows what we are all about.

"It has been really emotional for me. I have played the game 10 years and have never had a season like this, I have never won a promotion.

"That shows how hard it is and the team we have got here. It has been great to be a part of this and it will live in my memory. I have a League Two winners medal and that's the main thing.

"I want to enjoy the party now but I am already looking forward to next season in League One - even pre-season!"
