For the first time since 1960 they will play in the third tier (The old Third Division as I still think of it).
I didn't watch the final defeat, preferring to spend time with my family at the beach.
I turned off the radio with 9 minutes remaining.
For a while things were uncertain, in my mind anyway.
The bush telegraph has been silent, you know things are really bad, people are hurting when nobody talks about it.
I left my phone off, didn't look at the telly or the internet, tuned into music stations on the radio.
I got on with the otherwise agreeable family weekend.
That's how I handled the initial stage of relegation, the other stages will follow.
