Next Season We Target The Play Offs - JG

Next Season We Target The Play Offs - JG

Manager John Gregory saw us draw one all with Bristol City yesterday to close out this season and immediately set the aim of a play off run for next year.

Fresh from signing his new extended contract with the club, Gregory told the press that really the game itself was a good pointer as to how the season has gone, but he wasn't going to get overly bogged down analysing the game at this stage, saying simply.

'The draw summed up our season very well. We finish 14th and many parts of our game are very good, but again we didn't take our chances.'

Taking our chances, especially this side of the season, has been something that Gregory has commented on after games far more often than not, and it'll definitely be something he looks to change next campaign, especially if we are to have any hope of reaching what is now our stated aim.

Admitting that he faces a 'huge challenge' next season to get us into the play offs, he adds that signing his deal as he was given assurances that he could do the job in the way he wanted in terms of budgets and plans for the future, and once he had those assurances he was more than pleased to stay so he could put things in place, and now having the deal out of the way it means he can focus all his energies on building us for the next two years.

'So it's full steam ahead, it'll be a hard summer and I look forward to having a lot of success over the next two years.'

Gregory does admit though that a lot of decisions won't be made until July or August so anybody expecting many early moves for new players may well be disappointed, but we shall see how things pan out now.

With 13 players out of contract in the summer, confirmation of those moving on is expected on Monday, but Sergio Torres has confirmed he will be moving on when his deal expires this season.

Ahead of the Bristol City game, Torres tweeted.

'On my way to my last game for Crawley Town FC it's been an amazing 4 years!! Thank you to everyone who support me on this great journey!'

In his time with us he made 100 appearances for the club, scoring seven times and he was an ever present in the side as we won back to back promotions into League One.
