Speaking to the EDP, Godbold said he was extremely proud to manage his hometown club and looks forward to trying to oversee the club's rise up the football pyramid once again.
"After speaking with the chairman (Gary Keyzor) recently, we see it as bringing long-term stability to the whole club. Now with the things in place within the club – such as the scholarship scheme, the link with Ipswich Town and Sentinel Leisure Trust – seeing the benefits of that will be a few years away. So it is the right time to sign. I just want to see the return of some of those good times we shared as players with the fans, to get back to winning games and give the supporters something to cheer about."
“The fans have been fantastic and the aim is to give the supporters a club to be proud of. “We thank them for being so supportive and sticking with us, and hopefully if they continue to follow us we can give them something bigger to cheer about in the future.”
