BRAINTREE Town boss Alan Devonshire says it has been a quiet couple of weeks since the season ended in the Blue Square Bet Premier and that no enquiries have been made for his players yet.

"Things are fine at the club at the moment. I'm keeping myself busy working," he said.

"There isn't any news on any player departures just, it's been quite quiet, but there might be something by the end of this week. I've had no phone calls from clubs for my players either."

After finishing in ninth place at the end of last season, Devonshire insists he doesn't want to get carried away by an even higher finish next year and that staying in the division is the first aim.

"At the end of the day, it's going to be harder next year but all we've got to do is stay in the league," he said. "The aim is to do to what we've done over the past two years and that's to stay here, that's what it's all about.

"I don't want to get carried away because it's going to be difficult again."

And with Southend United and Portsmouth arranged for pre-season matches, the boss says the club are working on other games

He said: "We've got a couple of good pre-season games lined up, so I'm happy with that – we're working on some other ones to arrange at the moment."
