Andy Woodman has no idea whether he will still be in charge at Whitehawk next season.

The former Newcastle and Crystal Palace coach has guided Hawks to National League south safety with a game to spare.

He says that is a case of mission accomplished and has not ruled out a move away from the Enclosed Ground before pre-season.

Hawks are four points clear of relegated Gosport, who they visit in what is now a meaningless final fixture of a turbulent season on Saturday.

They have got through five managers and 47 players and at one stage went 12 home games without a win.

But five victories in their last 12 outings, most recently at home to Poole on Saturday, have seen them safe.

Woodman, who arrived at the end of January, told The Argus: “My job was to come here and keep them up. That is what I’ve done. What happens now? I have no idea.”

Woodman’s next move could depend on whether Alan Pardew, alongside whom he has generally worked, secures a new post in the Premier League or Football League during the close season.

But the Hawks boss has also attracted interest in his own right at National League premier level.

He said: “I’d be lying if I said there hadn’t been quite a few people trying to make contact with me but I have shown my loyalty to these people because I knew how much they had invested in this place.

“I haven’t even taken any calls from anybody else because I said I wouldn’t just walk away from this.

“We will see what comes up. There are a lot of offers out there and we will see what happens. But I’m just happy for now for these people here.

“I’ve enjoyed it, no doubt about that. It has been hard and testing but it has been enjoyable.

“I’m just chuffed for all these players because they have taken a lot of criticism and they have had a hard season.

“I am very proud of what me and (assistant) Jimmy Dack have achieved with this bunch of players because it hasn’t been easy and it hasn’t been pretty.”

Hawks forward Alex Osborn, who scored the second goal against Poole, highlighted the progress made under Woodman.

He said: “We have had new managers and I feel like we are just starting to nail down how we can play. We have the right system and a solid team forming.

"It takes time but I think the team we have finished with could beat most teams in this league.”
