Alan Devonshire: The hard work starts now
BRAINTREE TOWN boss Alan Devonshire insists there will be no let up for his players, after the club secured its Conference Premier future.
The Iron enhanced their burgeoning reputation with a 0-0 draw against fellow part-timers, play-off chasing Southport, on Tuesday evening.
And with the foundations now in place off the field, Devonshire will be expected to push on next term, albeit with the same size transfer kitty as this season.
And while he may be able to discover more gems in the mould of Andy Yiadom or Dean Wells, Devonshire knows the Iron’s rivals will be more educated when it comes to the Essex side, next season.
“It’s great that the stadium has been passed and we are able to maintain our place in the league, but now the hard work begins,” said Devonshire.
The first season is probably the easiest but we have to maintain it.
“We don’t want to end up in a situation similar to Bath who had a good season last year and are now having a bit of a torrid time.
