As quoted in the Kent Messenger, Lovell said: “I don’t think there’s any reason why any club can’t do it.

“It’s something I think all managers and players want to achieve.

“I think it comes down to money at the end of the day.

“Our chairman is working hard to support this football club, which he’s done for many years, and he’s always looking to improve it.

“We’re all together, we’re a good family club, we all want the same thing and I’m sure if we could get things going, that’s something that you can aim for.

“Years ago Bradford did it, they got to the Premier League. It takes a lot of money for clubs to get up to the highest level, but it’s something we all want to do.

“It’s come to a point now where the money that’s in football is ridiculous but we’re realistic.

“All we’re concerned about this year is we’re in League 1, we want to finish as high as we can in League 1 and at the end of the season, whatever happens, happens.”
