Town chairman David Bosomworth is confident new manager Jamie Fullarton will prove the right man for the job and has called on the club’s supporters to “give him time”.
Fullarton was appointed on Tuesday until the end of the 2019/20 season and is Bosomworth’s sixth permanent boss at The Shay.
“He’s totally committed, 110 per cent ambitious, wants to develop players, wants to play nice football, but he understands the importance of getting results,” Bosomworth said of the former Notts County boss.
“It’s no good playing the most wonderful football if you don’t win, so there’s always that balance.
“We felt he would help us get back to doing what we’ve done since the club was formed, which is developing players to help us up the league and for themselves to progress into the Football League. That’s what we want to get back to.”
Bosomworth said he hadn’t yet discussed how Fullarton’s backroom team will shape up, but expected the manager to bring his own people in.
One the possibility of any further signings, Bosomworth said: “That’s entirely up to Jamie.
“Obviously we’ve got a situation with injuries at the moment and haven’t had the bet of luck with injuries this season.”
