Having left by mutual consent three days ago, Milligan admitted there were ‘politics’ at play during his three month spell as manager.
But he has given the world’s fourth oldesst club his best wishes.
“I do wish the club well,” he said.
“It’s a massive club in non-league and it needs to get back to a higher division, where it has spent most of its history.
“There are a couple of people there I still wish well and I hope for their sake, the ones putting in the time and effort, that they get to that level again.”
Milligan was tight lipped on the aspects of Sandy Lane life that he didn’t relish, but insisted his experience was a good one.
“I’ve enjoyed my time and what I did.
“There was some politics involved and that’s not so enjoyable.
“However, the management side and the training side of it I enjoyed.”
