LEE CLARK is promising fans who invest in a season-ticket the fittest Town team they’ve seen.
His promotion shot will be based on hard work, discipline and organisation but his new-look squad will be urged to pass the ball as much as possible.
“Next season will not be easy because a number of sides will be in contention for promotion, but I am confident we can be successful,” said Clark, preparing for tomorrow’s Galpharm League I clash with Southend after the away double success at Hereford and Bristol Rovers.
“By supplementing our already talented squad over the summer with players who possess the quality necessary for this level and higher, I feel we will be in a strong position to turn this club’s potential into reality.
“I want the team to entertain, but the most important thing is to have a winning team.
“The team will play with commitment, character and a desire to win and, rest assured, the players will be ultra-fit, which they need to be to play the style of passing football I demand.”
A six-week pre-season is already pencilled in to prepare the squad for a campaign and Clark added: “The players are going to be the fittest they have ever been.
“The regime I’m planning, the backroom staff we’ve got here and what we are going to do with the squad means the players will be fit, lean and light and that will benefit everyone.”
