BOSS Mark Wright, who has won admiration from Blues fans for the job he has done in extremely difficult circumstances, gave his reaction to Saturday’s draw at Aldershot Town which has all-but condemned Chester to relegation out of the Football League.
“There are a few tears in the dressing room but we’ve got to be bigger and better than that and admit we’ve not been quite good enough. We’ve got to pick ourselves up and get on with it.
“We’ve got to sit down and plan for the future of the football club and make sure all these embargoes do not come back and hurt us. We’ve got to have a budget that we will stick to.
“We’ve got a long list of players and a lot of agents contacting us. From Monday, we’ll be planning to bring players in so we can put a good side together for next year and try and bounce straight back. It’s going to be difficult in the Conference because there’s a lot of good sides in there, but I’ve done it before and I can do it again.
“My hands have been tied because I’ve not been able to bring a soul in. We’ve had to bring in youngsters. So it’s been difficult to make my mark on the team.
“A lot of people said to me I should have left because my hands have been tied, but I sat down and thought about it and I decided to fight on. I love football and, if the chairman wants me to stay, I’ll stick around and try and put a team together that I think will compete and push for, if not automatic promotion, then certainly for the play-offs.”
