Carshalton Athletic manager Peter Adeniyi had no doubts at all about committing himself to the club for another season as he gets down to work on trying to go one stage further next year.
The former Dulwich Hamlet and Eastleigh midfielder has had an impressive first season in charge after just missing out on the playoffs.
The Ryman South Robins have rewarded Adeniyi with a new 12-month deal and he was delighted to accept.
“Despite the disappointment of missing out on the play-offs, I’ve really enjoyed my first experience of management,” said the 37-year old in an interview with the club’s official website.
“It’s been a privilege to work with an exciting group of young players and they deserve all the credit for taking our season right up to the final game.
“I’ve got the full support from both the board and all the staff so, all in all, it was an easy decision to continue this adventure.”
Adeniyi has already made a move in the transfer market. 16-goal Chipstead attacker Raheem Sterling-Parker has joined and 31-goal top scorer Tommy Bradford has already put pen to paper.
“We scored over 100 goals last season but we should’ve had even more,” he added. “When we lost games it was mainly down to our own wastefulness in front of goal, so someone like Raheem will give us a slightly more direct route in that sense.
“Everyone knows how talented our young players are however and they can now back that up with experience of being in a promotion battle.”
