We as a club need to introduce contracts for some of our players as ultimately as manager not only do I want to develop players I also want to achieve success, says Sittingbourne boss Nick Davis
FRUSTRATED Sittingbourne manager Nick Davis urges the club to start tying their better players down to contracts to keep them.
Davis has guided the club to a respectable mid-table position in the Ryman League Division One South table on 23 points from 17 games but they suffered a 3-0 defeat at struggling Herne Bay in midweek.
“Our last game was disappointment from us and we gifted Herne Bay a couple of goals and with that the game,” said Davis.
“We are a team that on our day we are a match for anyone but that inconsistency is proof and shows in that we’ve won six, dawn five and lost six.”
The club are not in debt but they cannot compete with clubs in their own league or above when it comes to players’ wages.
Davis said: “We develop players and a few have moved on to higher levels, which I have no problem with. However, it is annoying when they are poached from clubs in the same league which at times unsettles our squad.
“It seems we are a victim of our own success at times and maybe we as a club need to introduce contracts for some of our players as ultimately as manager not only do I want to develop players I also want to achieve success.
“We are now having to rebuild and reshape our squad again and go to Godalming tomorrow determined to put on a performance for our loyal fans and attempt to get ourselves back on track and further up the table.”
Godalming Town welcome Sittingbourne sitting in the bottom two with two wins and three draws from their 17 league games – seven points adrift of safety.
