JIM Vince says he wouldn't swap his Witton Albion squad for leaders Telford United's.
'Telford have got the money but we've got the team and I wouldn't swap them. Every club in the league is envious of our squad of players,' he declared after Albion extended their unbeaten run to 12 games with a 2-0 win over North Ferriby.
'We've got the consistency now. The confidence is oozing out of the play-ers. They have belief in themselves. they are a complete team,' he added.
But he also warned: 'It is early days still. We are not even at the halfway stage. We are keeping on the shirt-tails of the front runners and I am just happier to be in a better position now than I was this time last year.
'Players are being recommended to us all the time and we check them out but they will have to be exceptional for us to consider now.'
Albion - nicknamed the 'Jimvinceables' by one fan - go to mid-table Ossett Town on Saturday and a re-union with Jon Wornsop they goal-keeper they recently released to accommodate Jon Kennedy.
'I'd like him to have a blinder and for us to win 3-1,' said Vince.
As Witton's promotion challenge mounts they are also getting a full squad back together.
Injured quartet Mark Jones, Adam Foy, Liam McGuire - all midfielders - and striker Carl Frost are making their way back into contention through the reserves.
Rob Lloyd's loan spell from Crewe Alex ends next week. But the competition for places is only going to get fiercer.
Vince will also have extra cover at the back with the return of veteran Simon Hughes. He has made one emergency first team appearance this season, but is coming back to lend a guiding hand to the youngsters in the reserves.
And if it comes to punch then Witton have signed the biggest and best in British history, boxing that is.
National hero Frank Bruno, who held the WBC heavyweight title for a short while and fought Mike Tyson at his peak, is the guest speaker at the club's sportsman's dinner at Winsford Civic Hall on February 23.
Albion broke all local dinner fund raising records with an approximate £11,000 profit when another boxing legend Ricky Hatton appeared at their last function. But the appearance of Bruno is likely to smash that figure.
