However, Owen, 26, insists inexperience is not an excuse after winning promotion from League Two with Stockport last season.
"You do need a balance of experience and youth, but that also comes with the younger players stepping up to the plate," he told the Sentinel. "There is no other way around it."
"Stockport and Hereford went up last year and they had young lads playing for them.
"We can't just say we need a team of
30-year-olds in the squad and that will achieve success. Whoever plays in the team, we need plenty of legs and we need to be more organised."
