Having taken over a team that was in the bottom half of the Conference, it was clearly very important that I quickly set about creating a culture of togetherness which was emphasised by a winning mentality. I ensured initial stability and then in my first full season as manager, and after nine seasons outside of the Football League, I guided Cambridge United to promotion via a magnificent play off final win at Wembley. That season was memorable not just for Play off success but also for another winning day at Wembley in the FA Trophy which was the club’s first piece of silverware in their history.
“Further to promotion, my aim was to ensure that Cambridge United retained their place in the Football League. This was achieved through the hard work, dedication and determination of the players, many of whom had not played at that level before. Taking Manchester United to an FA Cup replay at Old Trafford was a notable achievement which proved to be a great experience for the players and also provided another fantastic day out for the supporters. The replay in Manchester also handed the club a significant cash boost which should ensure stability and progression both on and off the pitch for a number of years to come. This is already evident with the club’s positive investment in the stadium, the training ground and a new pitch.
