LANCASTER City's new boss Phil Wilson is confident he can bring the good old winning days back to the Giant Axe.

The former Stalybridge Celtic and Southport manager believes he has what it takes to make Lancaster into a driving force in the Unibnond League.

"I am confident of a top six finish next season and it will be achieved by good passing football - the way the game should be played," he says.

"As you know I have vast knowledge and experience of this level and I know what's required to make Lancaster City a force again."

He says he knows that last season was 'disappointing' for Dolly Blues fans because when he won the Unibond with Celtic, Lancaster were always up there with them near the top of the Unibond table.

"For a club of Lancaster's size and potential to fall from third into the bottom half of the table is worrying - but that's why I took the job.

"I am delighted to have got the job and to be back in management, having won this league with Stalybridge and with my experience at Conference level," he adds.

Commented on the make-up of the current squad, he says City are in a better position than many other clubs.

"There is the makings of a top squad here and I think we can once again make Lancaster a force to be reckoned with in the Unibond. I cannot wait for pre-season training and the real thing," he adds.
