Prior to even interviewing any of the candidates for the management position, chairman Stephen Vaughan made it clear that he expects a minimum of a play-off place next season after failings from Ian Rush, Keith Curle and then Mark Wright during City’s three year reign back in the Football League.

Feeling that his ambitions are matched by those of the squad, Williamson is eager to meet his new squad and lay out his plans, with one face in the dressing room already familiar to him.

‘Like myself the club is extremely ambitious amd hopefully we can maximise these ambitions together, I have had good reports about the current Chester squad and I have worked with Sean Hessey before at Kilmarnock,’ Williamson told the official site.

‘I would like to meet them all as soon as possible and lay out my plans for the future’.

A firm disciplinarian, Williams warned the players that they are in for hard time when they return for pre-season training in order to achieve the necessary fitness levels.

‘Football doesn’t change and in my opinion pre-season is one of the most important times of the year and I can assure everybody that the players will have one of the toughest pre-seasons they can imagine, because peak fitness at the beginning of any campaign is vital,’ he added.
