Ian Chapman has said he will fight for the cause of Burgess Hill Town as long as the chairman has faith in him.

The Hillians have not won in eight games and they find themselves three points adrift at the bottom of the Bostik Premier table. Chapman knows it’s not good enough and he takes full responsibility for what is happening.

The latest defeat came on Tuesday night in Suffolk, losing 3-1 to Needham Market.

Chapman said: “Up to now we have not been good enough and I take full responsibility for that. But I don’t want to be looking backwards, we have to be looking forwards to get results.

“I do speak to the chairman and he wants me here. His fear is that I will walk away if it gets like it has and I have told him I wouldn’t do that.

“I am here to fight for the cause. I am not stupid enough not to realise if I had only been here since we had been in this league, I would have been sacked by now because it wouldn’t be good enough.

“But I have been here since the club was struggling in lower leagues and we have worked really hard. I don’t want anyone thinking its all smiles here, it’s a horrible place to be and it affects everything you are trying to do.

“I’ll fight for the cause of the club as long as the chairman has his faith in me.”
