New Boss says Nailers job was "no-brainer"

1 year ago By Dominic Hynes

New Belper Town boss Anthony Danylyk says that his decision to take the job ahead of the 2017/18 season was an easy one to make.

Danylyk joined the club after Charlie Palmer resigned from the manager’s role ahead of the 2017/18 Evo-Stik Northern Premier Division One South season.

The new manager said that this was a huge opportunity, certainly one that he couldn’t turn down.

Danylyk said: “It feels great to be the manager, it was definitely a no-brainer, as soon as me and Paul Donnelly (Assistant manager) saw the job available we knew it was massive and we had to apply.

“It’s a very well-run club that has a good core and a good set of fans so I’m looking forward to getting started.”

The Nailers finished last season in 10th place, 13 points below the play-off places. Danylyk says that there is no pressure on him or Donnelly to reach the play-offs but wants to improve the standards from last season.

He said: “The goal for us this season is improvement of the team and of the overall standards.

“There’s no pressure from the board to get into the play-offs this season but we certainly want to move in the right direction and then make a push next year.

“We want to play good quality attacking football, the way it should be played, we want our team to play with good pace and movement.”

Danylyk began his managerial career last year with Leek Town where he finished just seven points below the play-offs, but parted ways with the club after the season.

He feels that he has a better understanding of what it takes to fill the role after his time with Leek and will carry his experience over into his new role as well as having a good friend in Paul Donnelly beside him.

Danylyk said: “In my opinion man management is key, loyalty in football is hard to come by so I need to find a squad of players to be around me.

“Paul and I are doing this together, it’s more like us being joint managers than him being my assistant.

“He has a wealth of experience, getting numerous promotions as well as winning the FA Vase with Nantwich and having his UEFA B coaching licence.

“Above all that Paul is a good friend and I am excited to be working alongside him.”

Danylyk has a tough season ahead, but the club believe that he is the right man for the job and hope that all fans will get behind him and the team ahead of this season.
