Dick Creasey says it should be decided within the week whether he and Wisbech Town joint manager Paul Cousins carry on next season.

Creasey was brought in to handle the side in mid-season with player-boss Cousins when Scott Johnson stepped down to concentrate on playing.

Creasey said: “I had conversations with the board last week. They’re having conversations with Paul this week. If I’m going to do it I’ve got to give it 100 per cent.

“I need to think about it because it’s a massive decision and commitment. The situation should be sorted by the end of the week.

“If I am installed as manager then there’s a lot of work to do. The manager has got to install the right players to hit the ground running and put in a more competitive season. Seventh position is probably not really good enough.”

The club presentations take place on Friday at 8pm at the Elgood’s Stadium.

The Fenmen wrapped up their campaign with their third successive win thanks to a goal in each half from Callum Reed (16 minutes) and Danny White (60). Pag replied in the second half.

Creasey said: “It wasn’t a fantastic game to watch but we did enough to win.

“We were up against a typical UCL side that wanted to work hard. But at times our quality showed through and we deserved to win without too much doubt.

“They were two well-worked goals with six to seven passes before both. The last three games we’ve done OK but now the hard work starts. Kieron Doherty had to call off for personal reasons.”

Wisbech: Jordan, Millson, Fairweather, Reid, Spafford, Clayton, Reed, White, Battersby, Lunn, Smith. Subs: Green, Cousins.
