Woking FC target promotion in three year plan

Woking Football Club are targeting promotion to the football league in a new three year plan.

That was announced by new manager Anthony Limbrick, who today (May 10) faced the press for the first time since becoming manager.

He was announced as the new boss on Sunday May 7, after it was revealed that ex-manager Garry Hill had not been offered a new contract.

Speaking at the Laithwaite, Limbrick said: "We've got a three year plan to try and get promoted into the league, that matches my ambition as a manager.

"Next year we want to consolidate and build a squad that will try and push into the top half of the table with possibly the outside chance of the play-offs, I think we've got to be realistic and try and get to that.

"Then the following year we would try and push on and build from there. So that will be the target for next season and we want to work hard to try and assemble a squad and get the full time training model in."

The 34 year-old Australian coached at Southampton for six years after working at the FA.

While he was with the south coast club he worked alongside the likes of Nigel Adkins, Mauricio Pochettino and Ronald Koeman, before being selected as the England U17 assistant coach.

After this role Limbrick moved to West Ham United to coach the older age groups and is currently completing his UEFA Pro Licence.

Speaking on the type of football Cards fans can expect, Limbrick told the press: "We'll be playing a high tempo, pressing game.

"So we're going to get right high up the pitch and put the opposition under pressure.

"I think it's our job especially at home to get the fans on our side and really try and win that ball back as quickly as we can, but also with tactical discipline as well so there will be times where we'll have to drop off and defend the long ball."
