Richard Kay says he will continue to take a ‘no nonsense’ approach to life at Long Buckby after it was confirmed the club will fill a relegation spot this season.
The Bucks’ fate was sealed last weekend as they fell to a 5-0 home defeat at the hands of Yaxley in the UCL Premier Division.
They were also beaten at title hopefuls AFC Rushden & Diamonds on Monday, although they put in a more creditable performance in a 3-1 defeat.
And Kay is now looking ahead to next season, using UCL Division One title winners Spencer as a template as he bids to help his team return to the top tier.
“Since I came to the club towards end of October-November relegation was on the cards,” said the Buckby boss.
“It’s disappointing but sometimes a club needs to take one step back to take two forwards and get its house back in order.
“For two years the club has struggled and it’s probably a hangover from three seasons ago when the club won the title without any long term view on the future of the club.
“A straight no nonsense approach needs to be continued and we need to move forwards like Northampton Spencer have.”
