League safety lets Flynn focus on next season

Newry City boss Gerry Flynn will prepare his side to face Glenavon tomorrow with the pressure of a relegation scrap lifted from his shoulders.

The Lurgan Blues visit the Showgrounds and they will encounter a Newry City side now focused on climbing up the Carling Premiership table.

At this stage of the campaign some manager’s thoughts will start turning to next season and Flynn will soon study his budget and make the necessary changes

“When I learn my budget I will know what can be done and take a look at what players are available,” he said.

“Hopefully we can climb up the table as that will bring more finances to the club.

“There’s an extra £1,000 for teams that can climb a place in the table and that money would be a welcome addition to our coffers.

“There are three games left and I want the team to put in good performances.

“Hopefully without the pressure of a tense relegation battle, the players can really express themselves.

“It would be nice to go on an unbeaten run to the end of the campaign but we are expecting a fired up Glenavon side to come to the Showgrounds.”
