AFC Fylde manager Dave Challinor admits money talks as his preparations continue for the club’s second National League season, say The Blackpool Gazette.

Several of Fylde’s early transfer targets have been attracted away by Football League clubs and the Coasters face competition for others from National League rivals. Challinor admits his club lacks the financial clout of newly-promoted Salford City and relegated Barnet and Chesterfield, though the Coasters boss hopes the club’s success will tempt some top targets.

Challinor said: “It’s slow, it’s hard work and it’s frustrating. We are in a situation where a lots of team are after the same players.

“However, I am confident we will get players who will improve the squad from last season. Hopefully over the next couple of weeks we should see a few new faces through the door.

“I don’t want to become desperate because it’s about getting the right players rather than signings for the sake of it. An awful lot of players we have been interested in from our division have moved up into the League, but there are still players out there.

“Football League clubs are an attractive proposition and money is always a big contributing factor. We aren’t going to break our structure and we are realistic as to where we are at.”
