Davis wants the opportunity to stay on at Spencer Stadium

Banbury United manager Paul Davis says he wants to be given the chance to bring the club back up following their relegation on the final day of the Evo-Stik Southern League campaign.

The Puritans’ relegation from the premier division was confirmed in Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at Chesham United where Dave Pearce hit the stoppage-time winner shortly after Joel Meade was dismissed.

United simply had to win at Chesham and hope results elsewhere went their way. But, with From Town earning a vital point in the 1-1 draw with St Neots Town, United would have been relegated anyway.

After the game, a disappointed Davis spoke to the Banbury Guardian.
