Brian Little admits there needs to be a 'massive turnaround' at Wrexham in the summer, if the club are to push for a return to the Football League.
Wrexham have been consigned to non-league football next season and Little has already started making plans for a Blue Square Premier campaign.
He put five players on the transfer list last week, released four more and decided against offering contracts to five players who have been on loan at the Racecourse Ground.
Little expects to have some money to spend in the transfer market in the summer as he looks to construct a squad capable of achieving promotion at the first attempt.
"We will have a budget that is equivalent to most, if not better than most people in the Conference, but we are not going to run out and spend loads and loads of money," said Little.
"We are going to be in a position where we are going to be competitive in the division, I think that is almost a certainty.
"We will do everything that we possibly can to be good enough next season and that will not be our team for next season, we have already let 14 go, so it is a massive turnaround, but it has got to be a massive turnaround."
