Aldershot assistant manager Matt Bishop has expressed his delight at Dean Holdsworth's decision to remain at the EBB Stadium.
Shots chairman Kris Machala revealed that boss Holdsworth had turned down the advances of League One side Crawley, who are looking for someone to succeed Sean O'Driscoll after he took the Nottingham Forest job.
Bishop, who followed Holdsworth to the Hampshire club from Newport in 2011, told BBC Surrey that the 42-year-old's loyalty will benefit the Shots.
He said: "From a personal point of view I'm delighted (he's staying) because of our relationship. Dean's doing a fantastic job.
"It won't be the last time he gets linked with other jobs. He's good at what he does.
"You can see what he's done here in a short space of time. The club is making big strides and there is something special maybe brewing here."
