The Evo-Stik League Southern
Published 3rd May 2012
Despite fulfilling his pre-season brief – to keep Banbury United in the Evo-Stik League Southern Premeir Division – Ady Fuller says he needs assurances before committing himself to the Puritans for next season.
The United boss would certainly like to be in charge next August but he will not be committing himself until he has met with chairman Paul Jones next week.
Although Fuller had enjoyed his first taste of managing at this level he admitted the last few weeks have been tough as he sought to keep the Puritans in the Premier.
“The chairman’s aim was to keep us in the league and we’ve done that but I would have liked to have finished higher and, had we been able to keep our better players, I’m sure we could have,” said Fuller.
“Paul Lamb and I would both like to stay and we know the budget is the problem and we understand the financial restraints but we need to see more ambition from the club.
“We know we can get the best out of players but when we had a dip in mid-season we needed to be able to go out and bring in decent players, like some other clubs did, and we weren’t able to.
“I’ve learnt a lot from managing at this level for the first time and I think that will make me a better manager next season and I hope it’s at Banbury United.”
