New Atherstone Town joint boss Adam Davies believes a strong working relationship with nearby Tamworth can only be a good thing for the Adders.
A close relationship with the Lambs seemed to be blossoming last season, particularly when Scott Rickards and Mike Fowler took over the reins at Sheepy Road.
Goalkeeper Aidan Jeynes was on loan when he saved a penalty in the FA Vase that saw the club into the FA Vase quarter final.
And relationships such as the one with the Lambs are something Davies and Innes are keen to keep strong as they plot another big season.
“You’ve got to use your contacts,” Davies said. “Tamworth have been more than helpful and quite open with communications. Where we can maintain those relationships, we will.
“Some of the lads have been doing sessions with Scott [Rickards] and Mike [Fowler]. If the opportunity is there to get some of the Tamworth lads back, especially the likes of Aidan Jeynes that did so well when they were here last, then we should absolutely utilise that.
“Our job at the moment is about maintaining that momentum from last season and it’s hard to get anything going with the current situation. But the fact we’re in that situation and we’ve got lads here buzzing for the new season means we just have to capitalise on that.
“It’s a fresh start for us two coming in. I know we’ve been at the club before, but we’ve got a chance to put our own stamp on it now, there’s a nice fresh feel about the whole thing.”
