ANDY Preece believes Airbus UK Broughton have not been given the credit they deserve for securing the club's best-ever position in the Welsh Premier.

The Wingmakers can finish no lower than sixth after sealing their place in the Championship Conference for the first time.

"When you look at the calibre of the clubs who are still fighting for sixth place and we're comfortably inside it, it's unbelievable what we've done and I think it's gone a bit lost," says the director of football.

"Look at the teams who are down there fighting for sixth position.

"Bala Town are usually in it every year, Llanelli I know have had problems but they've pretty much kept the same squad together and they're normally in it.

"And then you've got a club like Aberystwyth who are trying to get into it at the last minute, bringing in good players and spending good money.

"So for us to be sat there, having never been in it before, is an unbelievable achievement."

The Wingmakers travel to Aberystwyth on Saturday (12 noon) and a victory could see Airbus claim second place, depending on results elsewhere.
