The Stamford AFC board have shown their faith in manager Graham Drury by giving him a long tern contract with the relegation threatened club.

The new extended contract will keep the manager at the club until at least the end of next season, 2016/17.

Drury joined the Daniels for his third spell in charge of the club back in November, after David Staff had stepped down at the start of the season and Andrew Wilson was dismissed after just 10 games.

Since then he has transformed the team, bringing in new players and instilling a great spirit and work rate from his charges in recent weeks as the new look side comes together.

Stamford remain second from bottom of the Evo-Stik Northern Premier Division but are now just four points from reaching the safety zone after picking up four points from their last two games, beating Hyde United 2-1 last Saturday before drawing 2-2 with Stoubridge on Saturday.

Performances have markedly improved in the last couple of weeks, which is a good thing too, because time is beginning to run out if the Daniels are to make another great escape.

Every game is now vital for Stamford but the two games coming up at the end of the month could very well seal their fate this season. On January 23 the Daniels host fellow relegation strugglers Whitby Town before hosting another bottom four side Colywn Bay a week later.
