Parish: Experience Will Set Us In Good Stead

Parish: Experience Will Set Us In Good Stead

Steve Parish has admitted that when taking over the club nobody realised quite how difficult this season would turn out to be, but nobody is looking backwards as the club looks to improve further next season.

'We have got more time to look at things and a bit more experience, we have got the right manager now and we need to back him.'

With the board looking to increase revenues, balance the playing squad, investigating a new stadium and training ground in conjunction with the fans, they certainly havne't been taking their eyes off the ball in their first year as owners, and clearly they will have learnt a hell of a lot over the past few months.

'We want to try and give people something to be positive about, we don't want to be celebrating surviving relegation again. Dougie has been brilliant, we are giving him backing in terms of trusting him and on the financial side but it's not going to be millions and millions.'

Parish obviously makes the point that we won't be competing with clubs who can shell out millions on players, and we won't be in the same ball park as those Premiership clubs coming down with their juicy parachute payments - but that doesn't mean we can't compete and have an enjoyable and successful season.

It's probably appropriate that Parish ends the interview by saying.

'The next stage of his management career starts now.'

It's very true of Dougie, and equally applicable to the board as the next stage of their ownership career begins now aswell.

The advantage we have over most clubs who have suffered administration and financial woes...there can't be many, if any Eagles out there, who doubt those in charge won't get it right for us.
