The Daniels manager spoke about the club’s season and the team’s clash against Chasetown in the Evo-Stick First Divison South play-off final, which kicks off at 7.45pm at Stamford’s Kettering Road ground tomorrow (Friday).

Wayne, who was joined by the club’s new chairman Bob Feetham, had a steady stream of visitors through the morning.

He said: “It’s been nice to meet a few of the fans. We wanted to try and raise awareness of the club.

“The play-off final has had a nice effect on everyone at the club and hopefully the people around the town.”

Wayne said he hoped to see a huge crowd to cheer the Daniels on to victory at tomorrow’s game.

Stamford beat Belper 4-2 away on Monday to make it through to the play-off final.

The winners of tomorrow’s game are guaranteed a place in next season’s Evo-Stick Premier Division.
