Sean Clancy is happy to stay at AFC Telford

Sport | Published:

Midfielder Sean Clancy is "happy" to stay at AFC Telford United next season and has hinted that he could take up a role within the club's burgeoning youth set up.

Clancy was one of the Bucks' star performers as they claimed a first home league victory in almost five months with 1-0 triumph against Lincoln City on Saturday.

And the former Fleetwood man said: "I am comfortable to stay at the club. I am happy where I am and I love being part of Telford. I think the fans are fantastic and the club's really good.

"I am not looking to get away, but I haven't had anyone approach me yet about next season so we will see whether they do or whether they don't."

It has been rumoured that Clancy could be offered a role within the youth set up and he said: "I think there might be something coming out next week.

"There's exciting stuff going on behind the scenes and I'd love to stay part of a club that has got such a good structure. It is improving all the time behind the scenes."

Manager Steve Kittrick would like to keep Clancy for next season, as well as several other players who were involved in Saturday's win, but that finances would ultimately dictate who stays.

He said: "We'd like to keep him but it is down to Sean on the finances.

"I am going to a board meeting on Thursday to get the budget set for next season and, if people are sensible, there will be a lot that have played on Saturday that will stay here.


"But if they aren't sensible and they want money that we can't afford then they will be going to other clubs. I am sure we will come up with deals for most of them."

Among those Kittrick hopes to retain are leading scorer Tony Gray and star midfielder Godfrey Poku, although both are expected to attract offers from elsewhere.

And the former Guiseley chief revealed Gray has discussed an extension to his current deal with managing director Lee Carter.

He said: "Tony has told Lee what he wants and it is up to us to see if we can meet what he wants and whether we want to go that far or not."
