Eastbourne Town assistant boss Garry Wilson expects to be at the Saffrons for the 2013-14 season but admits an attractive offer could prise him away.

Wilson took over the role halfway through the previous season and helped Danny Bloor guide Town to their highest ever Ryman League division one south finish of 11th.

With managerial vacancies popping up around the county as clubs look ahead to the new season, many chairman could see the ex-Eastbourne Borough manager Wilson as an attractive proposition.

Wilson said, “I am happy at Town and they have made me feel very welcome. I have enjoyed working with Danny (Bloor) and I expect to be there next season. “Being a number two is not a problem for me. I’m a football man and I enjoy the involvement, be that at a higher level or just running a pub team.

“I do keep my eye out to see what is around and if an attractive offer did come up I would consider it but I have been actively looking.”

Next season Town are hoping to build on their success, show greater consistency and push for a play-off spot.

Wilson believes they have the base of a good squad but are hoping to make one two more quality additions.

“We enjoyed patches of good form last year but at times we went for periods where we did not pick up any points. We cannot afford runs where we are getting nothing from these matches. If we can improve in that area then we can give ourselves a better chance.”
