Hartlepool United first-team coach Mick Wadsworth has revealed he would be keen to remain in charge next season.
Wadsworth took on the role until the end of the season after director of sport Chris Turner parted company with the club in August 2010.
"I'm pretty sure I'll be here next season, I hope I am," Wadsworth told BBC Look North.
"I've had a fantastic time, I like the club and really enjoyed working here."
Wadsworth added: "It's a good club, I've thoroughly enjoyed my time here.
"It was difficult early in the season when we had of all the changes, but from there on in, I've had great support from the board, and great support from my staff who have been helping me with the players."
Pools remain 11 points short of a play-off place with eight games to play in League One this season, having reached the 50-point mark with a 2-0 win over Plymouth a fortnight ago.
"The aim is to finish as high as we possibly can, and to look at the end of May and say what a good season it has been," he said.
"We've come a long way, built a lot of foundations for next season and it's been a very constructive season, very productive season and we've throughly enjoyed it."
