ANYTHING BUT RELEGATION WILL DO FOR BARRY
WP ARCHIVE
NEW Barry manager David Hughes will measure success this season by one parameter - finishing one point above the drop zone.
Faced with the problem of building a team from the financial ashes at Jenner Park, Hughes must recover from a disastrous start which sees the Dragons without a point after four games.
"Don't get the wrong idea, I want success as much as the next person," said the former Aston Villa, Cardiff and Shrewsbury defender.
"But if we end up with one more point than the relegated clubs, we would certainly have achieved our main target for the season, it's as simple as that.
"I understand how disappointing this must be for Barry fans, who are used to winning. But to stay in this league is our objective - and we are all aware of just how long the road ahead is for this club."
Hughes is looking for players to strengthen his part-time squad.
