Despite earning promotion into Sky Bet League One just over a week ago, Paul Tisdale has already begun work for next season.
While the dust is yet to settle on the Club’s successful season, Paul Tisdale and his coaching staff have already started their planning for next year.
“As pleased as we were with ourselves, patting ourselves on the back, we now have to get ready for what will be a very important summer,” Tisdale told the media.
“Ultimately as the manager, I have to make the decisions – but we’re in a good position.
“It’s not June, it's still May so we've got a good run-up, but we're into that period when it can become a bit of a circus. You've got to be in the hunt, in the contest, but the window closes in August so it shows how long this goes on for.
“We were very fluid and dynamic in November, but we could not maintain that. I need a certain type of signing that will give us the depth to give us those performances more often.”
Tisdale added, “It is a long season – playing home and away is different, playing in September is different to playing in winter. This is my opportunity to nudge it in a different way, but I have to be careful not to change too much.
“Essentially, we need a team that garners all the momentum and why we've had a good season – work-rate, ethic – and take that into the next league. We don’t want to overthink how to become better, we don’t have to get it right in August either, we have time to build ourselves into next year.
“I'm philosophical about it, and looking forward to it, but we have to get the balance right.”
