New Contract For Slade?

By: Bill Osborne
Date: 11/02/2006

Russell Slade is expecting to be offered a new contract by the club before the end of the month or after the next board meeting. "The club are talking about a two or three-year deal." Slade told BBC Sport.

"I've been told no later than the end of February and the chairman John Fenty has told me he's going to circulate his proposal to the other board members."

"It should be on the agenda at the next board meeting, though I don't know when that will be."

"I only had four professional players when I first came here. When I arrived at Grimsby I promised the chairman I would build a side that was better than the one I took over and I think I have done that."

"We're punching above our weight at Grimsby. We run a tight ship at the club, but what we've achieved should give other teams hope.

"Our budget just doesn't compare with the other top-six clubs. Our budget is sensible and at the end of the season we won't be running at a loss."

"If we'd have sent out a signal that players were available - and of course we didn't - we could have done an awful lot of business in the January transfer window."
