Richard Kane insists Gainsborough Trinity will ride out what has been a tough period and climb away from trouble.

The Trinity chairman admits to having some concern over the Blues’ current league position, just one place above the National League North relegation zone.

However, he says fixtures over the coming weeks offer manager Dom Roma a real chance to climb away from trouble in the new year.

In Roma’s first full season as boss, Kane says he would not be pressured into making changes to his management team.
“I have been contacted by a one or two supporters who believe we should change the manager and even some of the players, but I can tell you that the manager will be staying here,” said Kane.

“If we were halfway through the second year of the manager’s reign then I would understand the supporters’ frustration and maybe there would be something to think about.

“But here we are halfway through his first season and there are going to be ups and downs. We are building something here, it is an ongoing project and it won’t be done in one season.

“Results will pick up, I am sure of it, because I think Dom is working very hard and I like what he is doing. We are certainly playing better football.”

Kane revealed one of Roma’s recent additions to the Trinity squad Adam Champman has already been the subject of a seven-day approach from another National League North club. However, the Blues chief insists the player is staying put.

“We have been in receipt of a seven-day approach for midfielder Adam Chapman, who has only just been brought to the club,” confirmed Kane.

“But we have had a lengthy discussion with the player and Adam will be here at least until the end of January.

“If a Football League club were to come in for him he would leave with our blessing, but for the moment he is staying with Gainsborough.”
