AFC Telford United: Club likely to lose best players - Kittrick

AFC Telford United have won just five matches in the 20 that Steve Kittrick has been in charge of.

AFC Telford United boss Steve Kittrick says the club will have trouble keeping some of their players after their relegation from the Conference.

Telford's demotion was confirmed on Saturday after they could only manage a draw at home to Kidderminster Harriers.

"Tony Gray will get a lot of offers as he's scored 18 goals this season," Kittrick told BBC Radio Shropshire.

"There are rumours that clubs are looking at Godfrey Poku but if he wants to stay here, I'd love to have him."

Kittrick joined the club in December after former manager Liam Watson was sacked with Telford 13 points adrift of Conference safety.

But the 57-year-old wants to plan for the future at New Buck's Head Stadium with a squad that can aim for an immediate return.

"I want people that will be hungry to win next year. I won't overpay for players and I want a good dressing room," he added.

"When I took the job I was told not to take things personally because I'd inherited someone else's team.

"When I came here a lot of players were down in the doldrums and a lot of people thought the season was over anyway."
