Ashley Chambers has put paid to any rumours that the departure of Tommy Wright would mean a move for Nuneaton Town’s top-scorer this season.

Chambers, who acknowledged his friendship with former Boro boss Wright was a strong pull for him when it came to joining the club this summer, said a move to Darlington for his former manager would not mean a quick move for himself either.

Chambers said: “I will be carrying on playing for Nuneaton Town and continuing to try and score goals, that does not change just because Tommy has gone.

“Yes he is a friend of mine and yes that had a big part in me coming to this club. He was someone I wanted to play for and I don’t regret the decision.

“He has gone now, though, and I don’t begrudge him for that. He has made a move for the benefit of his own career as he sees it and I wish him luck in that.

“That does not mean my own future is on the balance. I have a job to do here and I aim to do it.”

That job could see Chambers perform the role of mentor as much as goal-scorer this week.

He said: “Losing a manager is tough and it is something some of these guys will probably not have gone through before.

“You have to deal with it, though, and try and keep going as professionally as you can. I see my job as one of the more experienced players in being the guy who tries to help with that.”
