Salford City forward John Johnston believes that the club is only going to get stronger following the announcement that they are going full time.
The Vanarama National League North side announced yesterday that their management duo of Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley had signed two-year deals  with the club that would take them full-time, while the playing staff will join them in being full time from 1st July.
This announcement is the latest chapter in the story of the club, who are owned by the Class of 92 and the former Alfreton Town man believes the club’s owners are key to the team’s success.
Johnston said: “They come to most of the games and to play in front of them is great.

“They have done a magnificent job and the club will only get bigger and better, going full-time will help us achieve that goal.

“The owners are just top draw as is Karen Baird, the club’s chairwomen.

“She is unbelievable and the amount of work she does for the club is amazing. Everyone comes together to work and it’s a brilliant club to play for.”

The Ammies can take heart from the achievements that AFC Fylde has enjoyed so far this season. Dave Challinor’s men sit top of the division some 11 points clear of the chasing pack having gone full-time at the start of this season.

Johnston said: If you look at Fylde, they are full time and it’s helped them a lot. The players know each other’s game inside out and they are sitting top of the league.

“So they have done really well being full time.”

He went on to comment about the standard of teams in the league: “Just looking at teams this season it’s crazy, just crazy some of them could play at a higher level than what they are at the minute. Stockport, Darlington, Salford, Fylde and Halifax.

“It’s a good standard to play at the minute.”

Johnston has already experienced full-time football before as he enjoyed a short spell at League Two side, Crewe Alexandra between August 2014 and January 2015.  He says that he would probably take up the offer of playing full-time with the club if offered it.
