Salford chairman Karen Baird is targeting another promotion challenge next season in Sky Bet League Two.

The club, owned by six former Manchester United players, won promotion to the Football League for the first time in its history on Saturday with victory against AFC Fylde in the National League play-off final at Wembley.

It was a fourth promotion in five years and Baird insists the ambition of Salford - who will come up against the Bantams next season - means they see themselves as contenders again at the higher level.

"We are just going to keep going up and see how far we can go," Baird said.

"This one has been the hardest one, no-one has ever got out of the National League in one season and we are the first to do it.

"It's only two that go up - the champions and the play-off winners. Next year four go up so there's no reason why we shouldn't be up there again. We've come a long way but we are all very ambitious and we will push on.

"I got involved about six years ago and there were probably about 80 people and a dog watching and everything has totally transformed - the team, the stadium, the area. Now to be in the Football League is just amazing."

Salford have been criticised for the amount of money they have spent in order to win promotion through the non-league levels.

However, Baird believes it is not the budget that opposing teams and fans dislike but the attention the club gets due to its high-profile owners.

"Everyone liked us before and now they don't," she said. "I don't think its the budget, it's more the owners. Wrexham, Leyton Orient and Fylde all have good budgets, all have owners with money, but the spotlight seems to be on us a bit more with the Class of 92."
