Steve Burr is hoping the club’s relegation reprieve will result in his budget for next season being increased.

Burr knows  any rise will be modest but with some additional central funding and the potential for bigger gates, the manager believes the extra cash could prove crucial.

Midfielder Kingsley James and winger Wayne Riley arrived this week as Burr continues to build his squad for next season.

He believes all of the players signed so far are Conference Premier standard, but reckons a little more cash would allow him to add some genuine quality in key areas.

Burr said: “We are pleased with how things are going and the lads we are bringing in fit in with what we want to do.

“My phone has been red-hot since  Tuesday with lads who think we have got lots of money all of a sudden.

“I’ve got to sit down with the chairman this weekend and see what we can do.

“But now we’ve got games with teams like Wrexham, Bristol Rovers and Grimsby Town, and a great Cheshire derby with Altrincham.

“Gates will be bigger and it’s easier for the commercial department to sell things so obviously that brings in more money but I don’t think a great deal will change.”

One player many would love to see return to the club is Matty Taylor, whose contract with Forest Green Rovers has expired.

Taylor scored six goals in a seven-game loan spell last term and both he and Burr have been away with the England C team.

Burr will not be drawn on specific targets, but said bringing in a proven striker was a priority.

He said: “I have got lads in mind and players I have spoke to and we will offer them what we can and if it’s not enough then we will have to move on.”

Burr expects the Blues to have one of the youngest squads in the league next season, with new arrivals James and Riley fitting  his ideal profile.

James, 22, had spells with Sheffield United and Port Vale, and has moved from Hereford United on a 12-month deal.

Former Airbus UK Broughton hot-shot Riley joins from Conference North side Hednesford Town.

Riley, 24, came through the ranks at Northwich Victoria before moving to Airbus, where he ended the 2012-13 season as leading scorer.

Burr said: “The older players tend to cost you a bit more and I am expecting  us to have a very young squad with potential.

“It’s up to me and Jon McCarthy to get the best out of them, develop them and maybe make the club a bit of money.”
