Matlock Town manager Paul Phillips has reiterated that wholesale changes should not be necessary at the club going into next season.

The former Buxton boss had his first full campaign at the helm ended early, with Matlock in 8th place in the Northern Premier Division, having only played six games.

Phillips told the club’s website: “I was pleased with most aspects of last season. You always want to improve, we wouldn’t be doing our jobs right if that wasn’t the case.

“The amount of changes will be small compared to last year because a lot of changes aren’t needed. We didn’t make a great start, but as the season went on, we got used to each other and built up momentum, and the longer the season could have gone on, the better we’d have got.

“Okay we lost the last game at Coleshill, but it was probably very harsh on the lads, as 13 or 14 of them had been down with Covid.”
