John Askey says the squad are ready and excited to start the season ahead of the 2017/18 National League opener with Wrexham on Saturday.
Speaking ahead of the season’s beginning at the Racecourse Ground, Askey took the time to speak exclusively to mtfc.co.uk to share his thoughts following a successful pre-season.
He said: “It’s one of those where everybody gets anxious or excited about the first game, but as we all know it’s a long season and we’ve got to make sure we go into the game not too excitable – just knowing there’s a job to be done and play with confidence.
“Many of the Wrexham lads we’ve played against or have played for us, so we know all about them. They’ve got a decent squad and they’ve spent heavily this season but if we play to our potential then we can match anybody in the league.”
