Stamford Forced Into Budget Cut
Tommy Brookbanks

....club’s playing budget won’t jeopardise their promotion prospects.

A number of players who were present at the club before Brookbanks succeeded Simon Clark in the hot-seat in October are to be asked to take pay-cuts.

If they don’t agree to reduced terms, Brookbanks insists he will have no alternative other than to attract new players who are happy to play for less money.

Stamford are in the thick of the promotion race and Brookbanks said: “I’ve known all about the budget situation since the day I came for an interview before taking over as manager.

“My remit when I came into the club was to get the budget down to a certain figure and I asked to have until the end of the calendar year to manage it.

“A few of the lads will have to take a pay cut to stay at the club. If they are not happy with what we offer them, there are players out there who I know will come in on less money.

“We’ve already proved that we can replace good players with lads of equally as good calibre on less money and we know we will be able to do it again.

“It’s basically a bit of housekeeping that has to be done. Every manager would love a bigger budget but that’s not how it works in these tough times.”

The Daniels need to return to winning ways when they host Lincoln United at the Premier Kitchens Arena today.

Brookbanks has seen his side lose their last three matches and admits cutting down the number of goals conceded is a top priority.

He added: “We’ve let in forty goals in twenty-two games and if we do that again in the second half of the season, we will end up nowhere near the play-off places.

“We are changing a few things defensively but the most important thing at this time of year is rolling our sleeves up and doing the dirty jobs well.

“The pitches aren’t good at this time of year and neither is the weather, so you really have to want to go out there and win games.”
