Josh Staunton has confirmed he would be happy to stay at Woking for the coming season, insisting the drop down to the National League South doesn’t concern him.
The former Gillingham and Charlton Athletic academy player is one of only three from last season’s squad, Charlie Carter and Declan Appau the others, that director Geoff Chapple expects to stay at the Laithewaite Community Stadium for the 2018-19 campaign. Staunton, 22, joined the Cards on a two-year contract in the summer of 2017 after turning down a new contract at Dagenham & Redbridge.
And while still disappointed not just Woking’s demotion from non-league football’s top flight but also the manner of their final-day defeat to Dover Athletic that led to their relegation, Staunton insists it’s important to retain a positive focus for the future.
“You have to try your best to get over it because otherwise you keep dwelling on things like that forever. You have to try to move on,” he said of the Cards’ relegation.
“Results went our way and we didn’t do enough really. Actually, to be fair, I thought we did enough against Dover to win but we didn’t win unfortunately.”
