WREXHAM striker Jon Walters hopes the prospect of some long-awaited stability off the field can inspire a late promotion drive from the Dragons.
With local businessman Neville Dickens leading a consortium poised to buy the club, Wrexham's long-term future looks considerably brighter.
But 22-year-old Walters, who has just returned to the side from injury, reckons the good news can act as a more immediate spur to help his side challenge for a place back in League One next season.
"It's fantastic and it's a massive step for the future of the club," he said.
"We've all been disappointed by the situation carrying on for such a long time but now everyone can push for a place in the play-offs and try and make sure we get there.
"To be honest, I've tried not to let the non-footballing matters play on my mind and I have concentrated on my own game, but it's what everyone's been waiting for."
Just how big a part Walters has to play in Wrexham's end-of-season runin remains to be seen. During the Birkenhead-born front man's absence with a fractured cheekbone, Denis Smith's on-loan forward pairing of Matt Derbyshire and Sam Williams have struck up an effective partnership.
"I understand the situation Denis is in and I'm willing to bide my time," added Walters. "It makes it better for the team to have competition for places and Lee McEvilly is not far away from being back either."
Walters played the final 20 minutes of the Dragons' FAW Premier Cup final defeat to Swansea City on Wednesday, following short run-outs against Macclesfield and Cheltenham.
He admitted it has been a frustrating couple of months for him personally, but revealed that now he is back in the first-team fold, he is raring to go.
Walters said: "I was happy to play my part in the Swansea game as I need minutes to get back to match fitness.
"Unfortunately, we've lost a couple of reserve games to the weather in recent weeks but I feel all right now."
Wrexham's promotion push starts at Blundell Park tomorrow as they face fellow League One hopefuls Grimsby Town, who are currently second in the table - despite last week's 5-0 thrashing at Lincoln City.
Mariners' manager Russell Slade raised a few eyebrows during the game as he kept his players out of the dressing room at half-time and conducted his team talk, complete with tactics board, on the pitch.
Walters said: "I'd like to think that we can go there and get a good result.
"Last week's thrashing might put them on the back foot, but it could also mean that they come out like a completely different team with all guns blazing."
Meanwhile, fellow midweek substitute Simon Spender is hoping that his Premier Cup goal against Swansea helps to earn him a starting berth at Blundell Park.
He said: "It was nice to come on and score a goal and obviously I hope I'll get a chance. But the team's the most important thing and ultimately it wasn't enough to prevent defeat, and that was disappointing from our perspective.
"Obviously, it's very disappointing to lose. I felt that we didn't get going in the first half but it was a really good effort by the boys in the second half. We really got amongst Swansea and unsettled them.
"Once we got the equaliser I felt we were right back in the game and by the end they were hanging on for the victory. If we hadn't conceded the own goal who knows what might have happened.
"I don't think we really did ourselves justice. The whole team knows we can play better than that and had we done so maybe the result might have been different."
