Carlisle defender Matty Robson has targeted an immediate return to Sky Bet League One.
The Cumbrians released 11 players after relegation was confirmed by a last-day defeat at Wolves and Robson, under contract at Brunton Park until the summer of 2015, said the remaining players owe it to the club's fans.
"Walking over to the fans at Molineux was really difficult," the 29-year-old told the club's official website.
"You're always going to feel sorry that you've let them down because they spend some serious time and money following us up and down the country.
"The players appreciate that massively and it's tough to see the emotions. We all felt the same, but that's no consolation when they've just watched their side get relegated."
The former Hartlepool winger, converted into a left-back in recent seasons, added: "We want to prove that we do belong in League One. That bad feeling will go, but we shouldn't forget it.
"We know we need to put it right rather than just hope people will forgive us. We've got to be mentally strong and believe we can turn this round next season."
