Dear: Wisbech Town are settled, self-sufficient and ready for title challenge
WISBECH Town are settled, self-sufficient and ready for a promotion charge, according to assistant manager Chris Dear.
Fenmen stalwart Dear returned to the Elgood’s Fenland Stadium this month - and he is delighted with the club’s healthy position on and off the pitch.
“We are in a very good situation,” he said. “We’ve got a settled squad, we’ve finished fourth two years in a row and we’ve got a great ground and facilities.
“The football club is now self-sufficient because of the gates, the bar and the clubhouse. There won’t be many clubs at this level that are like that these days.”
Dear, a former Wisbech player, said he was looking forward to challenging for the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division title next season.

“I would be over the moon if we could win it. Winning is what it’s all about, whether that’s a game, a cup or a league. We’ve got a lot of people in the squad who share that winning mentality.
“This club belongs in the league above. That’s where I played for many years and I think with the support and the way the club is going there’s even a chance of going one level higher.”
Dear, who will assist Steve Appleby alongside Darren Jimson, said having three coaches in the dugout will help Wisbech take a more “professional approach”.
