HARRY Pritchard has stressed that Maidenhead United’s main aim this season is to steer clear of relegation, and, if they achieve it, he says it will be happy days.
The Magpies midfielder has been one of the side’s most consistent performers on their debut season in the National League.
And he says the way they’ve adapted their game and competed this season shows the club is moving in the right direction.
Pritchard missed a chance to add to his goal tally in Saturday’s stalemate against Halifax, but he’s determined to reach his target of 10-12 goals between now and the end of the campaign – and chip in with many more assists.

Pritchard told the club website: “I feel so far we have done well.
“Our main aim was to not get relegated back down to the National League South as this was our first ever year in the National League. As long as we stay away from the relegation battle then happy days. It took us a few games to get used to the pace, but since then we have adapted well and shown that we can compete with others in this league.
“From fighting relegation to now competing in the National League, I think the club is moving in the right direction.
“Personally, I would like to reach my target of 10-12 goals. I would love to carry on assisting whenever I can and help us achieve the highest position possible. As previously stated, the club’s main aim is to not get relegated. Any position in the top half of the table would be a great achievement.”
