MANAGER Peter Jackson today confirmed he's delighted with the summer Town budget to build on his promotion-winning squad.
Back in the office after last night's victory parade from the McAlpine to a civic reception in the Town Hall, Jackson praised the 100% backing of owner Ken Davy following Town's play-off success in Cardiff.
"I've got an excellent budget and I can't ask any more from Ken Davy and the board," said Jackson, who will announce his retained list from the out-of-contract Rob Edwards, Paul Scott and Iffy Onuora on Monday.
"Ken extended the budget last year to allow us to sign Efe Sodje and Steve Yates and I'm happy with the scope he has given me on spending this time now that we are in Division II.
"We are not making any false promises to the fans. There is only so much money in the pot and I've got to stick to it, so three or four signings tops will be it."
Jackson has indicated he plans further talks on an extended contract for himself early next week.
"It's ongoing," he said. "At the moment I'm working more to put things in place on the playing front.
"There won't be any news on signings for a couple of weeks at least, but I have had some encouragement on that front from early inquiries.
"Promotion has been a massive bonus to us in terms of bringing in players as a Second Division club.
"Last year people wondered if we would challenge in Division III or even survive as a club and it made life very difficult, but this time they can see we are thriving, we can attract big crowds and it will undoubtedly be easier to get people to come here."
Jackson has a year of his current contract to run while most of his players have another two seasons left.
