Dennis Greene believes the Conference North will be the most competitive it has ever been next season.
With the likes of AFC Telford United, Barrow and Stockport dropping down and either North Ferriby United or Hednesford Town coming up as champions from the Evo-Stik Northern Premier, Greene thinks a top five finish will be hard work for any club next season.
He said: “This division will be the strongest it’s been for years if you look at the teams coming down,” he said.
“There’ll be a few clubs switching south - clubs like Histon and Bishop’s Stortford - and there’ll be stronger clubs - champions of their league - coming in.”
So can United gain promotion next term? “It’s about progressing,” Greene added.
“We want to put together a side which can be competitive next season.”
