JAMES Comley - nicknamed the 'non-league Kante' this season - is keen for the Magpies to make progress again after committing his future to the club.
Comley was one of a handful of players – including Dave Tarpey – to re-sign for the club on Saturday, adding a frisson of excitement to the club’s trophy parade.
The player – one of the final pieces in manager Alan Devonshire’s title-winning jigsaw – says he’s hungry for more success in a black and white shirt.
“I’ve loved it here, I’ve been here a season and a half now and I’ve loved it here,” said Comley.
“I thought, let’s give it another go, push on in the Conference. The team is staying together so I thought let’s see where we can go.
“The aim, as soon as you go into a new league, is to stay up. And then we’ll see what we can do. You never know what will happen until we’re there. We’ve just got to take one game at a time, the same as this year.
“If we win a few then we’ll see what we can do. But consolidation is the main thing in the first season and then we’ll push on from there. Everyone is very tight-knit here. It’s a good squad with good morale so hopefully we can go and push on.”
Other players to have re-signed for next season include Christian Smith, Max Kilman, Dean Inman, Alan Massey, Sean Marks, Rene Steer, Ryan Upward, Carl Pentney and Harry Pritchard. More are expected to confirm new deals in the coming weeks.
