"Unbelievable. It's surreal and I'm so pleased for evreyone at the club," Barritt said.

"For the past six years it's been a hell of a ride.

"I think credit has to go to our management team, they've done a magnificent job keeping us fresh throughout the season. It's more the collective focus. There was a huge emphasis on making this a season to remember.

"To do the double is something that is pretty special. I'm just pleased as we can now enjoy the break.

"I love this club. It means the world to me and my family and to do something like this is very special.

"You're doing it with guys who you consider to be your best mates, guys who you respect and love. We'll be able to look back on this time and have an unbelievable memory."
