Dallas-based businessman Casson, pictured, bought the club for £600,000 in September 2014 and reckons he has given Edmondson a competitive budget. Now he wants to see the Bluebirds win the league and secure promotion within two years.
Casson, who insists he is not prepared to “thrown silly money around” at the newly-promoted team’s budget, said: “We’re trying to build sustainability and a long-range future. We’re not going for the instant gratification.
“I don’t think anybody in this football club on the playing or management sides are expecting this club to be in the bottom half of the Conference this year.”
With the Bluesbirds set to kick off their campaign against Dover Athletic at Holker Street on Saturday, Casson also confirmed that he has every confidence in the management team put together by Edmondson who has never managed in the top tier of Non-League football.
He added: “I think he’s a fast learner so he’ll learn quickly. Many of the players are new to each other so it will take time. Hopefully, it won’t take too long.”
