THE ACCRINGTON Stanley fans were singing to Darren Randolph to "Stay Another Day" - and the keeper hopes he will.
The Charlton teenager's maximum three month loan spell ended against Southport on Saturday but the supporters and management hope to see him again in January when the transfer window opens.
And despite interest from Championship clubs, with Burnley said to be checking out the keeper on Saturday, Randolph hopes he will be back at the Interlink.
"I am desperate to come back. The players are top, a good bunch of lads, and I have enjoyed my three months here.
"When I first came it was a massive change moving from London and I used to go back to my hotel room with nothing to do.
"But I am just getting used to it, and I now have to leave. But I hope to be back in January."
Randolph's final match was a quiet one for him as Stanley won 4-0 and Southport had one shot on target and one off target in the 90 minutes.
"I was hoping for a bit more to do to leave on good memories but I have left with a clean sheet and a win and you can't ask for much more than that."
The Republic of Ireland keeper was desperate to go with Stanley at the top of the league but a late goal by Grays in their clash with Stevenage meant the Essex side kept their spot at the top of the table.
"When we were going into the dressing room we thought it was 0-0 and that we would be top but then we heard that Grays had scored and it was disappointing. It would have been nice to be top but I will settle for second," he said.
And he got a great reception as he went to applaud the fans at the end - with one running up and giving him his scarf.
"The lads tried to pull me down in front of the fans but I didn't mind and the supporters have been great with me and it was a nice reception.
"One man gave me a scarf which I will put up on my wall when I get back to Charlton.
"I will miss it so much. I will miss the banter and craic in training."
But he will be kept informed by goalie Robert Elliot who has come from Charlton to replace Randolph until the end of December.
"I will be texting him and ringing him and will give him any advice if he needs it - and telling him about the lads and all their secrets!"
