SAMMY Moore says he is enjoying life as player-manager of Concord Rangers.

Moore replaced Adam Flanagan in the dugout in the summer.

And Moore admitted that he, along with player-assistant manager Jack Midson and first team coach Darren Beale, has been pleased with the positive impact they have made at the Aspect Arena.

“It’s a credit to be manager of this football club because they give you absolutely everything and I see the club moving in the right direction,” said Moore.

“We need a bit of stability in terms of players.

“It’s a transitional period where we’re trying to move in the right direction, but it doesn’t happen overnight.

“It’s going to take time and we had 18 new players walk through the door, so it isn’t going to happen just like that.

“The season has been positive and we’ve got a management team and set of players that want to do well for this football club.”

Moore was appointed as player-manager after enjoying a successful spell in charge of Isthmian Premier League side Leatherhead.

The average attendance at the Aspect Arena has increased this season and the Beach Boys are just two points outside of the National League South play-off places.

And Moore said he knew he was walking into an ambitious club from the moment he first met Concord chairman Ant Smith.

Moore, who has enjoyed a fine playing career in the Football League, added: “Since I first met the chairman, I knew what I was walking into.

“It’s a family club which is ambitious and wants to do well.

“It’s driven by the committee and youth, as well as the chairman, and we wanted to be part of it.

“We’re hungry for success as a management team.

“I know the chairman and the committee are hungry for success and the structure all the way down to the youth teams is done properly.

“It’s a club that does things the right way, they give everyone everything they need and so there are no excuses come matchday.”
