“Everyone is on board with that and I think we will have even more support this year from what people saw last year – they really liked that” Grant Black

Experienced Craig Nelthorpe agreed to stay at the club this week which Black believes is the final part of his jigsaw.

“I think we can push to try to win the league this year – I really do,” said Black (pictured).

“If we don’t get another player in I definitely think we have a strong enough squad to be competitive this year.

“We’ve had a season to bed ourselves in and get everyone used to what we expect.

“Everyone is on board with that and I think we will have even more support this year from what people saw last year – they really liked that.

“I think that will help us and spur us on and I think we will definitely be pushing to try to win the league.”

Black has already brought 10 new faces into the club and, with almost every player from last season re-signing, he is delighted with the current dressing room.

“I think that is us done now as we’ve got everything in we wanted to get in,” he said.

“We don’t want to bring too many in and upset the applecart.

“If something pops up that’s too good to be true and we can’t turn down then we will look at it.

“Otherwise we are now planning for our return on 29th June.”
