NANTWICH Town player-manager Nigel Gleghorn says he wants a fully-committed squad next season.

The Dabbers boss has been frustrated at having to chop and change his team this term and says that has to change as the club targets promotion in the coming campaign.

Gleghorn said: 'We've had problems with some of the players' commitment and I need players who are available to play 50 games for us. I have targeted two or three players I want to bring in during the summer and I hope they can help us have a real push for the UniBond League.'

Gleghorn netted Nantwich's 1,250th goal in North West Counties League football at Fleetwood on Saturday, but it was not enough to prevent his men slipping to a 3-2 defeat.

All the goals came in the first half. Lee Catlow scored twice and Gary McDonnell once for the home side with a Mark Gardiner penalty providing Nantwich's other goal.

The Dabbers were furious that McDonnell's winner was allowed to stand after goalkeeper Stuart Heeps appeared to be fouled in the buildup.

Despite the disappointment of another defeat, Gleghorn wants to see his side finish the season with four wins.

'We can still get 64 points and we have some big games coming up, starting with the Cheshire derby at Warrington (played last night).

'We then have derbies against Congleton Town and Newcastle before playing Clitheroe in our final game, so I am looking for the players to stand up and be counted.'

Nantwich have no fixture this weekend.
