Harry Pritchard has said it’s always good to finish the season strong, and try to take that into next season, but, whether he’ll be there to carry on the fight remains to be seen.
The Magpies midfielder had his hands full after the end of season awards, walking away with the golden boot, the player’s player and supporter’s player accolades, after a season in which he’s taken on the goal scoring mantel from Dave Tarpey.
Some 16 goals were fired in off the left and right boots of Pritchard, leading to interest from clubs looking to prize away one of United’s most talented, and consistent assets.
Pritchard, who has deflected away the banter of teammates on social media this week over his future, was keeping tight-lipped after Saturday’s 5-2 win over Bromley. And, just like with the Sam Barratt situation, the club won’t stand in the way of the players’ progress.
“Nothing has been decided yet, at all,” said Pritchard. “I’ve had things said in my ear by other players, and other managers, but yeah, I’ve just got my head down. I have an agent so he’s working on some things and I’ll just have to wait and see what comes along in the summer.
“Dev’s always said that if I wanted to go and play at a higher level he wouldn’t stand in my way, because, obviously, he’s done that before.
“Maidenhead’s local to me, it’s perfect, which is obviously a massive factor with my job (personal trainer).
“That’s what’s kept me here, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens in the summer. It’s a very ambitious club, we want to be in the football league, or the play-offs definitely next season. I love it here, I’ve had six seasons here and I wouldn’t change it for everything.”
