TREVOR Lloyd will still be Hatfield Town manager no matter what division the team are playing in next season.

After weeks of long and hard thought, Lloyd has committed himself to the club to which he has been a great servant to for many years.

The Blueboys are still waiting to find out whether they have achieved promotion to the Premier Division of the Spartan South Midlands league after finishing in third spot in Division One.

However, the former Town centre-half has decided that his future remains as boss of the Herns Lane-based outfit.

He said: "I have made the decision to stay now, no matter which division we are playing in.

"I'm not going to lie and say it's been an easy decision to make-I want what's best for the club and would be gutted if we didn't get promoted.

"But I have been here a while now, and want to see Hatfield push on and move up the leagues and I really hope I can do that."

Lloyd was disappointed to see his side finish in third place in the league, and felt the runners-up spot behind Royston Town was well within their grasp.

Kings Langley grabbed that placing, although doubts remain as to whether they would be able to take up the option of promotion due to ground-grading.

The South Midlands League are still in discussions with the FA as to the exact make-up of the league constitution.

Meanwhile Lloyd has revealed that inspirational skipper Martin Standen could be on the verge of playing at a higher league club.

Lloyd said; "I said to Martin that if he wants to go play at a higher level then he should do.

"But he's got to make his mind up. He's got to decide whether he wants to make that break from the squad here.

"We will still have a strong squad if he decides to leave.
