Pilley tips Fleetwood to progress

Non-league

Fleetwood chairman Andy Pilley believes the club is well placed to build on their promotion to Blue Square North.

The weekend draw with Frickley was enough to secure the point they needed to move up from the Unibond League for the first time in their history.

"It's about us developing off the pitch as well as on it," said Pilley.

"We don't think there's any immediate ceiling to our progression. I think we can put it down to a team effort both on and off the pitch."

Pilley said Fleetwood's off-field plans underline their ambition to play at an even higher standard.

"We've had plans in place for the last few years and we think we'll be one of the better grounds in the league," he told BBC Radio Lancashire.

"We've got two new stands which are about to be built, a million pounds worth of investment, a new bar and Football League standard floodlights."

Pilley also paid tribute to manager Tony Greenwood for guiding the club to success.

"He's a fantastically talented manager who keeps his bottle when all around doubt him. You couldn't wish for a better person in your camp," he added.
