Lincoln City boss Moyses wants to leave on a positive note

Lincoln City manager Chris Moyses says he wants to end his managerial tenure at the club with a couple of positive results.

“We do need to sign the season off at Sincil Bank properly in front of our fans.” he said. “I’d like to think 2 and a half thousand will come on Saturday which will be good and we want to give a good show.”

“On a personal note, for the coaching staff, we want to finish as high as we possibly can. If we can get to 65 points it’ll be good.”

“It’s important to me I must admit. I want to do well and finish properly.”

When he announced his decision to step down a couple of weeks ago, Moyses made it clear he would like to stay at the club in a lesser capacity, with a Director of Football role mentioned.

However two weeks on, there has still been no indication from the club as to what role the departing boss will have.

“I still want to be involved,” Moyses reiterated at his press conference.

“There’s discussions with the chairman at the moment as to what level I’m involved. I also want to get back to having a bit more free time.”

“Whatever you say about football management, it starts with the first phone call in the morning and it’s the last phone call at night. Its 24/7 and to do it properly you have to give it the full attention and I believe I’ve done that.”

Meanwhile, there has still been no news as to who the club’s new manager for next season will be.

“To be fair, I shouldn’t see every applicant that’s applied,” said Moyses. “It was muted that once the shortlist is drawn up, I might get some involvement in having a look at that.”

“The next appointment is massive because the ground work is there. It’s done. All the bits that needed to be done are done. It’s a question now of taking it forward in a similar vein.”

“In my opinion, you need to have a manager that gets involved with the lads and is very good with the lads, keeping everyone onside.”

“He needs to be tactically aware. He needs to be at least an A-licence and I think somebody is looking to make a positive name for himself in football.”

With the club still to announce their next manager, many players in the current squad are still waiting to hear whether they will be given contracts for next season.

Moyses confirmed Jack Muldoon and Craig Stanley have played the required amount of games to trigger their contracts for next season, while Bradley Wood already has another year on his contract.

“The rest are all in limbo at the moment,” said Moyses.

Craig Stanley and Alan Power are out of Saturday’s match against Woking through injury.

But in more positive injury news, Moyses said defender Jamie McCombe is back in training and could be fit to face Cheltenham in the final game of the season next week.
